Hertfordshire festival reveals more headliner details
Digitalism, The Joy Formidable and Mike Skinner’s The DOT are among the latest acts confirmed for Standon Calling 2013.
The three-day festival, which runs between August 2-4, has added a raft of new artists to its bill. German electronic duo Digitalism are the third headliner to be announced, joining previously announced main stage acts De La Soul and Band Of Skulls on the line-up.
The Joy Formidable will follow their recent tour in support of Muse with an appearance alongside fellow new additions Toy, DJ Yoda and the Trans Siberian Marching Band. Speaking about his decision to take The D.O.T. out to festivals, Mike Skinner revealed in a statement that he got some advice from one of the music industry’s most influential figures: “It was Richard Russell from XL, we’d been speaking to him a bit. I guess in our minds we thought we needed a band. He said just the two of you, just go out and do it on your own, get a drum machine and sing along to it. It’s unique.”
Elsewhere on the line-up Public Service Broadcasting, The Skints, Shields, Lazarus & The Plane Crash, Rotten Hill Gang, London Afrobeat Collective, Band of Buriers and Trenton & Free Radical.
