They've been confirmed for plenty of festivals recently, it's not an error. Tbh who even listens to BC,NR for the vocals anyway???

 

The new album is all about the lyrics. Those songs are born to be shouted along to. I also think they said they wouldn’t play the songs, it’s not like it’ll be instrumental versions of songs everyone knows.

I think this is a FANTASTIC line up.

Some really nice surprises there: Minyo Crusaders (!!), Jenny Hval (!!!), ICHIKO AOBA (!!!!) and Witch (!!!!!).

Fantastic to see Arooj Aftab, Low and Cassandra Jenkins there.

Kraftwerk!? Did not see that happening. Thought they were way too big so that’s a great booking I think.

I cannot wait to see Mdou Moctar shred the main stage.

Beach House are one of my favourite bands so that’s perfect for me.

Great line-up, with some lovely names further down the bill, Arab Strap, Tara Clerkin, Low, Ezra Furman, Yves Tumor, Viagra Boys, Beverley Glenn-Copeland, Dry Cleaning, Witch & Lucy Gooch.

I hope Bicep do the Mountain stage and Metronomy or Beach House do the Far Out.

Glad i didnt buy a Friday Wide Awake ticket (yet).

This isn't IDLES m8. If I catch you "shouting along" while I try to appreciate the musical artistry of BC,NR , i'll kick off

I hope it’s Metronomy. Would prefer Beach House on the main stage.

I really like Bicep but struggling to see where they will be. It’s got to be the tent really hasn’t it?

I just can’t see them in the tent, it’ll be even more rammed than Idles was. 

Maybe they’ve switched the licence up so they can go longer on Mountain Friday or Saturday night - could see them after Beach House or Kiwanuka

Bicep following Beach House would be unreal.

I would put money on them being on before Kraftwerk. Both have big A/V elements and feel like natural festival bedfellows, it makes no sense to advertise a main stage headliner and put someone on after them, and I really doubt they'll be in Far Out for how popular they are.

It will be light though. I don’t see how a change to the license is particularly likely either.

Interesting one for sure and I hope the plan is good, whatever it is.

Aside from maybe Kraftwerk there's nothing here that isn't already doing the rounds all summer sadly – if they'd have managed to get this out a few months ago it'd be a bit more exciting – but as a standalone lineup it's quite nice. I'm quite excited to see how Beach House 'do' a festival headline slot as to my knowledge this is their first in UK/EU.

I think that’s the least likely, they’ll be playing in the light for a bunch of the set. 
 

Would also be one hell of a comedown after that party when OAP Kraftwerk come out bleep blooping around.

They did Field Day back in the day and that was great!
