DiS returns to Leicester's Summer Sundae on Sunday 19th August to curate our own stage.
This DiS stage is De Montfort Hall, which is the second stage of the festival, and we have it on the Sunday of the three-day festival. In previous years, DiS' bills have featured everyone from Futureheads, Frightened Rabbit and Wild Beasts to Factory Floor, Warpaint and The Antlers.
We've spent months to-froing with the festival organisers about this year's line-up and we're very proud and excited to announce that Django Django, The Twilight Sad, Hey Sholay (who won a recent 6Music/DiS reader poll for the must see band this summer!) and locals Maybeshewill are the first few names confirmed for our stage this year. There are more to be revealed but here's a quick audio intro to these first four, in case you don't know any of 'em:
The Twilight Sad
Also confirmed for the festival are the following acts:
PUBLIC IMAGE LIMITED / KATY B / tUnE-yArDs / ASIAN DUB FOUNDATION / REVEREND AND THE MAKERS / WILLY MASON / FRANCOIS AND THE ATLAS / MOUNTAINS / JONATHAN RICHMAN / JUAN ZELADA / LAZY LESTER AND FRIENDS / DAN MANGAN / RACHEL SERMANNI / CASHIER NO 9 / GOODNIGHT LENIN / GRACE PETRIE/ THE MAGIC TOMBOLINOS / Y NIWL
And we hear there are more names being announced for Summer Sundae on Wednesday at 3pm.
