My Bloody Valentine and more added to T in the Park lineup

T in the Park have today announced more top acts for the 20th year celebrations. My Bloody ValentineTrash Talk,FIDLAR and The Virginmarys are the latest artists to join the T in the Park bill, and will be performing in Kinross over 12th – 14th July.
The hugely influential My Bloody Valentine will make their T in the Park debut this July, in what’s sure to be a very special moment at the festival’s 20th year celebrations. Their much revered debut album Isn’t Anything and their iconic second release Loveless earned the band a devoted following and global critical acclaim. Their long awaited third album m b v has been 22 years in the making, and when they released it on their website in February, demand from fans was so phenomenal it caused the site to crash within minutes. An exhilarating live act, they’ll showcase their highly acclaimed new material as well as classics such as You Made Me Realise andOnly Shallow from their much loved back catalogue. 
My Bloody Valentine
Sacramento punk group Trash Talk take their influence from American hardcore and speed metal. The group’s steady touring has won them a rapidly growing fan base, and support slots with Odd Future (OFWGKTA) raised their profile even further. They’re guaranteed to deliver a stand out set at T in the Park.
Also making the trip to Scotland from the sunshine state will be punk outfit FIDLAR. The LA four-piece released their eponymous debut album in January, receiving much acclaim for their collection of frenetic, fuzzed out, west coast punk tracks. They caused a stir with their slot at this year’s SXSW, and if past performances are anything to go by, they’re sure to put on a blistering set at T in the Park this July.
Macclesfield’s The Virginmarys were another buzz band in Austin last month. Their blend of punk, grunge and rock ‘n’ roll influences has already landed them an iTunes single of the week both in the UK and US. Their debut album King of Conflict has won the band plaudits from across the globe, as well as an impressive international fan base, with Slash famously declaring himself a fan, and their set at T in the Park is not to be missed.
Over 85,000 festival-goers per day will descend on Kinross over 12th – 14th July for the 20th year ofT in the Park, which will feature performances by some of the hottest acts on the planet, including headliners Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and The Killers, plus Stereophonics, Kraftwerk, Beady Eye, Foals, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, The Courteeners, Frightened Rabbit, Twin Atlantic, The View, Editors, Frank Turner, Ocean Colour Scene, Imagine Dragons, Local Natives, The 1975, Palma Violets, Peace, The Strypes, British Sea Power, plus many more still to be announced.

My Bloody Valentine, Grimes and many more added to Flow Festival


The legends of alternative rock, My Bloody Valentine, hot on the heels of their praised comeback album, electro artist Grimes and many other acts have been added to the lineup of the Flow Festival. All tickets come on sale today on Friday the 5th of April.

Founded in the early 1980s, Irish band My Bloody Valentine returned from a 22-year break from recording in February, and will now perform at Flow this August. Their previous record, 1991's Loveless, has become one of the most highly praised, undeniable classics in its genre with its uncompromising buzz. This year's m b v is one of the most impressive comeback records ever.

Other new additions to Flow's lineup are New York's Parquet Courts with its garage-sounding ruckus and roll, the new star of alternative pop, Grimes, and Junip, the band fronted by the master of timeless folk José González. Last year's Visions from Canadian Grimes was at the top of countless best of the year lists and Pitchfork picked Oblivion as the best song of 2012. Grimes follows-up her success with a fourth album expected in autumn 2013. Junip is also set to release new material in April.

Local additions to Helsinki's Flow Festival are jazz acts Dalindèo and Verneri Pohjola & Black Motor, two acts from the top of Finnish hip hop, Loost Koos and Laineen Kasperi ja Palava Kaupunki, as well as the bunch of reggae artists brought to Flow's backyard by the Reggae Sundays club including Bitty McLean, Gappy Ranks and Christopher Ellis.

All Flow Festival tickets will come on sale today on Friday April 5th and the day-by-day schedule of the festival has been released. More acts will be added to the lineup during the spring.

Earlier, artists such as Kraftwerk 3D Show, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Knife, Bat For Lashes, Beach House, Kendrick Lamar, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Haim, Solange, Azealia Banks and Of Monsters And Men have been announced in the lineup. 

My Bloody Valentine set for Polands Off Festival

To call My Blood Valentine's new album one of the most eagerly awaited records in the history of rock would be an understatement. The long wait for the follow-up to Loveless can only be compared to that of Guns N' Roses' infamous Chinese Democracy, with the difference that Axl's fans, who had grown up in the meantime, simply ignored his new album, while the followers of My Bloody Valentine, though furious at Kevin Shields for repeatedly postponing the release date of m b v, waited faithfully for the promised record. So loyal were they that when the band announced the immediate release of their new material one February night a few weeks ago, the band's website promptly crashed under the deluge of fans eager to buy the digital LP.

My Bloody Valentine

But there's another fundamental difference between the two: m b v was actually worth the wait! The album is, by all standards, outstanding; a worthy successor to Loveless, one that builds on the themes sketched out 22 years ago while at once broadening the band's musical horizons to encompass new and intriguing artistic dimensions. The record became an instant classic, winning critical acclaim from both reviewers and fans, who immediately forgave Shields his sins of omission.

We're proud to announce that My Bloody Valentine will be performing at the 2013 OFF Festival!
The band resumed playing live shows five years ago. And while the performances aren't too frequent, the group makes up for the lack of quantity with superior quality: My Bloody Valentine's live act is as legendary as the volume of sounds produced by the artists. We've hosted many of Shield's excellent and talented students at the OFF Festival, but it's about time we saw the original: don't miss My Bloody Valentine this August in Katowice!
