Ra Ra Riot, Islands added to Siren lineup
Ra Ra Riot and Islands have been added to the lineup for the 2008 Siren Festival, taking place July 19 at Coney Island.

They join previously announced acts Stephen Malmus And The Jicks, Broken Social Scene, Annuals and The Dodos at the event which takes place over two stages along the boardwalk at the famous New York pleasure beach.

The Helio Sequence, Beach House, Times New Viking, Jaguar Love, Film School, Parts & Labor, These Are Powers and Dragons Of Zynth will also play this year’s festival, the future of which has been up in the air since the Astroland amusement park was sold to developers in 2006.

The legendary Cyclone roller coaster remains the property of the Albert family, who will continue to operate it even after the redevelopment.
