Stone Roses, The Prodigy Headline Future Music Festival 2013 Lineup
The wait is finally over for the Future Music Festival 2013 lineup and it looks set to rock your skulls off for their ‘Day Of The Dead-Set Awesome’ theme.
Promoter Future Entertainment had been brewing something special, and full of more mind-blowing music than you can poke a cactus at… Future Music Festival 2013 is going to kick harder than a Tijuana donkey on peyote!
With the most innovative and dynamic line-up to date, Future Entertainment is bringing you a curated arena and two super-sized main stages jam-packed with some of the hottest talent the world has on offer.
Not all of the rumours turned out to be on the money, although keep an eye out for a second announcement, but we will be treated to alternative rock pioneers The Stone Roses who are finally set to bring their Manchester-borne reunion tour to Aussie shores.
Joining them on the live front are fellow Brits Bloc Party who are returning to Australia for the first time since the release of their critically acclaimed new album Four, Aussie favourites The Temper Trap, Gypsy & The Cat, UK powerhouse MC and festival must-have Dizziee Rascal, DJ Fresh, Rudimental, and chart-topping New York pop-rockers Fun.
Electronic icons The Prodigy will also be there, heading up the Warriors Dance Arena – an entire arena dedicated to hard-edged, and heavy bass driven music plus some of the world’s most cutting-edge dub-step acts including Boys Noize, Kill The Noize, Zeds Dead, Borgore, and international tastemaker and legendary DJ in his own right, Zane Lowe.
In a risky but amusing move, International sensation and K-Pop superstar PSY has also been added to the bill. The recent online obsession over his Gangnam Style video has turned the South Korean into a global phenomenon with over 400 million youtube views and counting.
This season, Future Music Festival has pulled together an array of the finest female talent on the planet. First up, hailing from Harlem, is Azealia Banks with a much anticipated new album on the way, Rita Ora with no less than 3 UK #1 hits, Ellie Goulding, and the ever-impressive Aussies (and Future Music favourites), Nervo.
Of course there’s acts for fans of EDM too, and Future Music Festival have put together the A-Team of electronic music with icons Steve Aoki, A-Trak (Live), Madeon and Hardwell all set to make an appearance.
