Following last year's festival feast of Howling Bells, Fuck Buttons, Noah and the Whale, Youthmovies and The Mae Shi, DiS returns to Leicester this weekend to host the Rising Stage at Summer Sundae.
We've been sad to lose Dananananaykroyd but we're ridiculously happy that Wild Beasts could step in to treat us to some of their wonderful new album Two Dancers. In fact, we're so happy about it, we're giving away a pair of tickets to the festival to anyone who comments below with the correct title of their debut album. COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED!
Update: Fanfarlo have also dropped out but been replaced by the super awesome Gold Panda.
