LCD Soundsystem announce first live show of 2017

James Murphy's group are expected to release a new album next year

LCD Soundsystem have announced their first live show for 2017.

The New York group will appear at Forecastle Festival, which takes place in Louisville, Kentucky between July 14-16.

As DIY reports, James Murphy’s collective will headline the event. Other artists confirmed to perform include Run The Jewels, Vince Staples, Weezer and 2017 Grammy nominee PJ Harvey.


LCD Soundsystem had previously announced their own festival to take place in Mexico in January. However, the inaugural Beach Vibes was cancelled in September. An official statement said the event “was not coming together in the way that it was envisioned.”

“All parties have agreed that putting on an event that is less than 100% would be a disservice to the fans and bands alike,” a statement on Beach Vibes’ website read. “Therefore, cancelling the weekend-long event is in the best interest of all involved.

“Fans who purchased all-inclusive packages will be refunded in full, including related airfare expenses, and will receive direct communication from CID Presents in the coming days.”

LCD Soundsystem recently cancelled tour dates in Asia and Australia to reportedly work on their new album.

Hong Kong’s Clockenflap Festival revealed the band’s plans when issuing a statement about LCD’s cancelled appearance at their event, citing “studio scheduling conflicts related to their new album.”
