Liverpool band confirm first British festival show in six years


The La’s have been announced to perform at this year’s Bestival.

The reclusive Liverpudlians, who last played at V Festival at Oasis‘ request in 2005, have been announced as part of the line-up for this year’s Isle Of Wight event over the weekend of September 9-11.

This is the second festival appearance the band have confirmed after they were recently announced to play their first in six years at France’s Rock En Seine.

The La’s frontman Lee Mavers also made his first live appearance in over two years last month (June 19), playing Manchester‘s Deaf Institute under the name Lee Rude & The Velcro Underpants.

Tribes, CocknBullKid, Wolf Gang, Daughter, Lucky Elephant, Mad Dog, Skinny Lister, The Growlers and The Toy Hearts have also been added to the bill for this year’s Bestival.

James Blake will also be performing a DJ set and Beastie Boys‘ new short film ‘Fight For Your Right – Revisited’ will be screened at the event.

Pendulum, The Cure and Bjork will headline this year’s three-day bash. See for more information.
