Django Django to headline NME Awards Tour 2013
Miles Kane, Palma Violets and Peace also join the annual jaunt
Django Django have been confirmed as headliners for the NME Awards Tour 2013.
They'll be joined by Miles Kane, Palma Violet and Peace on the annual tour, famous for launching the careers of Florence And The Machine, Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand and more.
"It’s a massive deal for us to be headlining," says Django Django's Dave MacLean. "I was looking back at the bands who’ve played it in the past and it seems like everybody has! By February, we’ll have a bunch of new songs written too, so we’re looking to add at least one to the set – and possibly a cover."
