ASH, One Minute Silence, Groop Dogdrill, CRACKOUT and SONIA FARIQ have all been added to the bill for THE LOST WEEKEND festival at LONDON DOCKLANDS ARENA on July 1 and 2.
The two-day event, headlined by Nine Inch Nails and Skunk Anansie and also featuring the Rollins Band, Therapy? and Machinehead, will mark Ash‘s first UK show since they played a low-key invitation only gig at London Water Rats during March.
It will allow a much larger group of Ash fans the chance to hear tracks from their new album, several of which are fronted by guitarist Charlotte Hatherley. Ash are due to head into the studio over the summer.
Groop Dogdrill and One Minute Silence will headline the second stage, with Groop Dogdrill on July 1 and ‘Silence the following evening.
Crackout and newcomer Sona Fariq will open the main stage on consecutive evenings, Fariq kicking off on July 1.
Organisers have also promised an alternative lifestyle village featuring everything from rubber gear and tattooists to surf simulators.
