Manchester festival adds LA band to its line-up
The band, who released new album ‘Warpaint’ earlier this month, will perform at the festival in Manchester’s Heaton Park this summer. They join a line-up which already includes Sam Smith, Mercury Prize nominee Jon Hopkins, Radio 1’s Annie Mac and MK.
Speaking about their upcoming appearance at the festival, which takes place between June 7-8, Warpaint say: “Playing Parklife Manchester this year, very excited. see you all there!”
The LA band recently spoke to NME about their new self-titled album, with lead singer Emily Kokal likening the band’s working set-up in the studio to a “democracy of dictators”. “There’s a lot of give and take,” she said. “That’s a part of our process as a band, that’s inside the music. If we didn’t have that tension I don’t think the music would be that good.”
The Parklife Weekender 2013 was headlined by Plan B and Example with performances from The Maccabees, Disclosure, Jessie Ware, Danny Brown, The Horrors, Everything Everything, Toy, Liars , Savages , King Krule, Rudimental, TNGHT and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
