Some good stuff, nothing as exciting as the first announcement.

What kind of set-up does James Murphy do live? Does he play LCD Soundsystem stuff or is it different? I've looked online and found nothing.

Looking forward to seeing Drenge. Been hoping to catch them this summer.

JM, Horrors and Mogwai welcome also. This announcement actually confirmed my attendance.

Normal people?

I couldn't even guess what a 'Pearl Jam/QOTSA type' would be. There two of the most run of the mill bands around.

And they're both brilliant!

There have been a lot of knobs at Pearl Jam gigs ive been too. No harm in them. Its a bunch of guys in their 30's who think they were wild back in the day and they all think theyre the biggest Pearl Jam fan on the planet. "I hope they play Sad from Lost Dogs, its the only PJ track i havent heard live. Arent i great?"

Yeah I forgot to reply to that earlier. I cant see anything wrong with the crowds they'd draw at all. As bands they're a bit different than what would normally play but they're not the sort that would draw a crowd to ruin the atmosphere of the place.

Actually give the Sex Pistols headlined one year QOTSA or PJ wouldnt really be that out of the norm either.

actually, at a pearl jam gig a couple of years back I got impatient waiting at the bar so I walked out of the queue and accidentally bumped into this 6 footer with long hair and he said WHOA MATE, TAKE IT EASY FOR CHRISTS SAKE

Pearl Jam fans are like Liverpool fans, you know some alright ones but generally they are annoying idiots. QOTSA is the same, add Foo Fighters in there too. Music for people who never got over grunge.

Kelis I saw at Bestival a couple of years ago and she was great, would go to see her again
Neneh Cherry, The Horrors, Mogwai and James Murphy would be good
Blondie have already seen, wouldn't be to fussed to go see her again
Sinead O'Connor - doesn't she play every year

Don't really know any of the other names
