Playlist: A-Y of Lowlands Festival

The Dutch festival hasn’t booked a Z (yet).

This August will see Lowlands once again take place not-too-far outside Amsterdam, as the likes of Tame Impala, The Maccabees, Courtney Barnett and Shamir head over to play the event.

Shura, Bastille and Låpsley are also among those joining in the fun between 21st and 23rd August - and to look ahead to festivities, here’s an A-Y playlist featuring our picks of the acts appearing. Why Y? Because there isn’t (as yet) a Z in sight.
