I don't know if they were on the original line-up or not but wolf alice and temples are two great up and coming live bands

Pretty underwhelming additions. Probably go see Blondie.

Temples sound pretty good. They sound like The Beatles.

I love watching the David Guetta brigade express their disgust at the lineup

Temples were in the first announcement. Great album.

A bit underwhelmed, mostly because Sinead O Connor is being touted as a big act, and I've no interest in Blondie.
Kelis, James Murphy, Mogwai and The Horrors will do fine, I'll check out the lads down the bottom to see what they're like too.

These kinda comments are good
Ffs stil no big current headline rock band. QOTSA and Pearl Jam are touring I was expecting one of them
Yeaj who the hell is James Murphy? Is he a singer? Is he a DJ? Is a local farmer with a herd of line dancing cows? Who is he?

That's pretty good for a 2nd announcement. Horrors/Kelis/James Murphy, wouldn't mind seeing Blondie either.
Wonder if they'll have a main stage dance act at all now.

I can't imagine much worse than them adding QOTSA or Pearl Jam. Ok well Eminem or someone would probably make it a complete scobefest but barring that sort of thing the next worst crowd I can imagine would be Pearl Jam/QOTSA types.

Chic looking increasingly likely for that spot.

these are funny alright ... who are these people? and why are they interested in a grown up's event?
