Connect Fest Links Up JAMC, Björk, Beasties And: Primal Scream, LCD Soundsystem, Mogwai, Go! Team, CSS, Idlewild
Hope you're sitting down for this one: in a rustic European setting, over a summer weekend, there's going to be a music festival. Many notable artists will play there, often on the same day. Camping will be available for those who seek it.
Weren't ready for that, were ya?
This year's Connect Music Festival
, taking place on the banks of Loch Fyne near the presumably very old Inveraray Castle in Argyll, Scotland August 31-September 2, will host the keep-crumblin', moat-ripplin' headlinin' antics of Björk
, the Beastie Boys
, and Primal Scream
. The bill also includes the resurrected Jesus and Mary Chain
, the Yo La Tengo-beloved Only Ones
, the best new music made by LCD Soundsystem
, the audible spin-art that is the Go! Team
, the messy punk of CSS
, and a swarm of others. Fret not, dancemongers; though the fest's current lineup may seem bloated with rocker-types, the loungey Frenchies of Nouvelle Vague
are the first of what festival organizers promise will be "plenty more" electronic acts in their Manicured Noise Tent.
For the whole of the confirmed lineup, lookee here: Björk, Beastie Boys, Primal Scream, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Mogwai, LCD Soundsystem, the Go! Team, the Only Ones, Idlewild, CSS, Tilly & the Wall, Nouvelle Vague, King Creosote.
