Primavera Sound has announced initial names for 2016.
Radiohead are playing. That means their new album is coming out very soon, surely. The group were in the studio throughout 2015, and they look poised to put out the follow-up to ‘The King of Limbs’ in early 2016.
Comeback kings LCD Soundsystem also have a new album out this year. They’ll be on the Primavera bill too, joined by Tame Impala
The Primavera line-up was announced via a fancy livestream, showing a rocket taking off into space. Which is fun, if a bit pointless.
