Alt-J to join Arcade Fire, headlining INmusic Festival

When the band return with their new album

Alt-J have been announced to headline Croatia’s acclaimed INmusic Festival.

The Mercury-winners will be joining previously announced headliners Arcade Fire in topping the bill at the event. The largest open-air festival in the country, INmusic is set by the beautiful setting of Zagreb’s Lake Jarun.

The rest of the line-up is yet to be announced, but with previous line-ups including the likes of Florence + The Machine, Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, Placebo, The Prodigy, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey, Moby and Morrissey, anticipation is high.

INmusic Festival takes place in Zagreb, Croatia from 19-21 June 2017. Early bird tickets are just €27-€40 and are available here.

Drummer Thom Sonny Green recently provided an update on the progress of the band’s next record, saying they had “lots of ideas” for their third LP.

The band followed their Mercury Prize-winning 2012 debut ‘An Awesome Wave’ with ‘This Is All Yours’ in 2014. Green released a solo record titled ‘High Anxiety’ in August.

Speaking to NME back in summer, Green confirmed that, despite his solo ventures, Alt-J are “by no means” over.

“[We’re] very excited about it, I think it’s going to be pretty interesting,” Green said of their next record. “I feel like it’ll be different, but I don’t know. It’s funny that we write together so well and it comes pretty naturally and pretty quick.”

Pressed on what the album might sound like, Green replied: “I can’t predict it. You know, we write what we feel.”

He also stated that he has “no idea” when the album might be released and that recording hasn’t started yet.
