France's best music La Route Du Rock has announced a vintage lineup for 2013.
featuring Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Hot Chip, Godspeed You Black Emperor, !!! and Tame Impala.
Set against the glorious green seas of Brittany's "Emerald Coast", and easily accessible from Portsmouth via Brittany Ferries, the festival has becoming a deserving favourite amongst discerning festival goers looking for some sun, sand and late-summer sounds. An easy going atmosphere and a spectacular location that includes beach, theatre and chateau stages, as well as generous headline-length sets for all the performers, make LRDR a European festival event not to be missed.
Previous years have included headline sets by
The XX, Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, The Flaming Lips, The Cure,
Massive Attack, The National, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, and many more.
La Route Du Rock takes place on the 15/16/17 August this year in St. Malo, France, and in addition to the band already announced, the festival's usual cutting-edge new-band lineup will be unveiled over the coming months.
We have a limited number of reviewer seats available, as well as a good number of ticket-only reviewer spots.
News, festival guide inclusion & previews all appreciated.
