Synthesizer/live electronic band help needed please!

Recommended Posts

Tried to bump my thread from 2013 bit is been archived, so I will start a new one...

I am not trying to undermine Ben's thread re electonica/dance music, but I need some more help chaps, I love live electronic music, anything with synthesizers and I am a happy man. The sort of bands I love are Kraftwerk, Goldfrapp, Gary Numan, M83, Holy Fuck, Air, Mirrors, Ulrich Schnauss, Sigur Ros (less synths but I still love them) 

Can anyone recommend any live ‘synth’ bands from the line up so far. Although I like dance music, I am looking for synth music specifically, so any ideas? 

Cheers!

George Fitzgerald live on Glade on Thursday ticks your boxes, @dingbat2.

And if you’re a Sigur Ròs fan (I am) then check out Eyre Llew. They’re opening JPT on Sunday and closing Scum on Monday morning at 0400h. They’re soundscapey post-rock with more than a nod to SR and are terrific. Their album Atelo is a smashing thing. 

I’ll have a look in my schedule for anything else that might fit your bill.

Can't believe nobody's suggested Snapped Ankles yet

I am still checking out Bananaram! 

I do like Snapped Ankles though

I was really hoping TVAM would be on the lineup, but sadly he's not (he's doing BlueDot and End of the Road though).

Worth a listen if you're into synth stuff. Saw Gary Numan at Bluedot last year and he was fantastic.

It really feels like Glastonbury have missed out on some really good acts this year.

Thanks Ben, I do like soundscapey type stuff. And psychedelic stuff. Looking forward to Josefin Ohrn and the Liberation at the Glade...

Maybe Fat White Family? They're rock, but synthy with it.

I've just listened to some of this, bloody hell that 4am slot has some potential. This is lovely stuff

Love unlimited Synth Orchestra

What/who are they, I liked the idea of them fro the band name, but when checking out BSRs playlist it was all Barry White stuff?!

I KNOW!

I'm torn, as intuitively I feel like I'll want to be dancing until Emily pulls the plug out, but I can see myself getting to 4am and thinking that I've had a good run, so I'll head to Scum and let some massive, blissful walls of guitar smash into my face to finish my festival.

No idea how bandy the live setups of any of these guys are but skimming through my playlist these are the most synthy acts I have found that I reckon fit what you want:
