Hark! Wireless’s under card is swelling now that the four headliners - Jay-Z, Fatboy Slim, Morrissey and Counting Crows - have been announced. It’s not shaping up too badly, actually.
Among the new additions are Saul Williams, Santogold, Black Kids, Jaguar Love and Cornershop (pictured). Not too bad, all things considered, though unfortunately Counting Crows’ day is still pretty much the worst festival line-up of all time.
But, of course, the magic of DrownedinSound is that you don’t have to take our word for it – see below, judge, pass comment if you wish.
