The Joy Formidable, Dutch Uncles And Poltergeist Added To Summercamp Festival 2013

The Joy Formidable, who recently toured the US with Muse, make a brief return to the UK for a slew of festival dates, which now includes a stop off at Summercamp. The riff-loving Welsh trio's tidal wave of euphoric rock is sure to engulf the stage in Liverpool's Baltic Triangle district.
Currently riding high on praise for their third album, which has been described as the band's "most accomplished to date" by The Fly, Dutch Uncles have also been confirmed for the stellar Summercamp line-up. Will Sergeant and Les Pattison, members of Liverpool legends Echo and The Bunnymen, are bringing their new band Poltergeist to the festival for a dose of progressive-inspired rock.
Elsewhere on the bill are new offerings in the form of lo-fi indie and afrobeat rhythms from Fair Ohs and the new band project, Le Carousel, from DJ/producer Phil Kieran known for his work with labels including Bugged Out!. Add to that Roscius, a one-man live loop and beats maestro, Americana-inspired garage rock from Spectrals and the sugary sweet electro indie pop of We Were Evergreen and Summercamp is shaping up to be the North West's best bank holiday weekend bash by a long shot.
Whilst early tickets are in very limited supply standard adult passes will still only set fans back o50, proving that a top quality festival need not break the bank or involve wellies.
Line-up so far:
Music (a-z):
Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Delphic, Dutch Uncles, Ed Harcourt, Fair Ohs, Joesph Salvat, Ghostpoet, Le Carousel, Marika Hackman, Martha Wainwright, Merchandise, Mount Kimbie, Poltergeist, Roscius, Spectrals, The Joy Formidable, The Staves, Wave Machines, We Were Evergreen and more TBA
