Headliners

LCD Soundsystem

LCD Soundsystem appearing at this event

Aka disco-punk electronica from DFA Records' James Murphy.The 'punk-funk' collective went on to great critical acclaim, receiving two Grammy nominations, shed-loads of media praise and worldwide tours before announcing their farewell concert in 2011, accompanied by the popular 'Shut Up And Play The Hits' documentary film. However, it wasn't farewell for long, as James re-emerged in 2015 and since then has continued to tour and record new material.

Ezra Furman

Ezra Furman appearing at this event

"A young man in a dress and vigorously applied make-up, singing about his Jewish faith, his depression, his anger and his joy, to a backing of 50s rock’n’roll, interspersed with bits of garage rock and Velvet Undergroundish R&B. Imagine Jonathan Richman’s even nerdier younger brother, from Chicago rather than Boston, and you’re partway there" - The Guardian From Chicago, Illinois, Ezra Furman showcases his Springsteen/Young/Dylan-esque sounds with a wry sense of humour and wild story telling. Crossing between love, gender, sexuality and religion, Ezra has soundtracked the current fear and loathing across America like no other, while pushing ahead with his own agenda.

Le Galaxie

Meshing pounding techno rhythms, shimmering cyber-synths and cascading dream-streams of sonic guitar-wizardry, this Irish four piece have stamped their 'grid vs. guitars' live dance frenzy on Ireland, UK, France, Sweden and Germany. The Irish Times on their now legendary show at 2012's Electric Picnic: 'Over the past two years, Le Galaxie have transformed themselves into a juggernaut of a party band, jack knifing into crowds who are only too happy to take the hit. Without question, one of the best sets of the weekend'.

Siobhan went on to have hit singles and albums around the world as part of Shakespears Sister before becoming a solo artist. Bananarama made it into the Guinness Book Of Records as the most successful female group of all time on account of the fact they’d had more hit singles than any other girl band ever. To date they have had 30 chart hits. They hit the top of charts around the world. In the US, Venus became their first #1 single on the Billboard chart. Their combined record sales were over 40 million.
