To see the legend Siouxsie Sioux that low on the roster is a shame and a tragedy. Lest we not forget our roots and Sioxsie smashed through so very many barriers. Not just for women artists but for alternative music in general. I get that it's not her with the Banshees reunited or something but it just seems so wrong.

Agreed! Almost mentioned but didn't think there was a lot of overlap with AF fans. Siouxsie is a totally a legend!

[–]MiyamotoKnows 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Right on! I hope AF fans check out Siouxsie & The Banshees because she is a big part of the DNA of their shared genre in my opinion (as are the Cure, Smiths, DM, etc.). The same type of music preferred by the same type of intelligent fan just a generation prior. I love that she is on there though as so many people who don't know the Banshees will get exposed to her. Cheers!

Guys… this is the best festival lineup I’ve seen all year. Arcade Fire (who I feel like have to be 100% committed if they’re still on the lineup), Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Belle and Sebastian, Metronomy, Florence, M83, and tons more)… jesus.

Yeah and Foals too who are one of the best live bands around! Really great lineup, shame it's not local for me otherwise I wouldn't think twice about going haha.

Aphex Twin? That alone is worth the trip. I've been trying to catch him for so long.

I'm going from NYC can't wait!!!

[–]Graham433[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Also from NY and so close to doing the same.

[–]onlyarcadefireCold Wind 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Also from NY and very close to pulling the trigger if I can convince a few friends to join me!

[–]sebasblox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I convinced a friend to come along, hopefully we'll see some fellow New Yorkers

What day will AF peform! Tryna book tickets to Lisbon rn... ! Not kidding

[–]Glittering-Owl22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think they should perform all 3 days, lol, make my trip worth it even more. But there's that other festival in Spain at the same weekend. (Just kidding, but not really.)

[–]Graham433[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They’ll definitely not be performing all three days as they’re booked for Cala Mijas festival during the same stretch of time. I think you’ll just have to wait until the schedule comes out (and I’d probably wait anyway since they haven’t promoted it on their socials at all). But I’m almost in the same boat as you, ready to pull the trigger on some tickets but also want to see the full Cala Mijas lineup as The Strokes are playing that fest and seeing AF and The Strokes would be sick.

Sat. 02. Sept.

[–]MaintenanceFluffy890 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Where did you see this? Thank you for finding!

[–]thanasiskar 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Because they are playing at Cala Mijas on 31.08 and on 01.09 the headliner of Kalorama is Florence And The Machine.

So the headliners of Kalorama are:

31.08 Aphex Twin
01.09 Florence
02.09 Arcade Fire

[–]MaintenanceFluffy890 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You mean they are playing cala mijas on 8/31 not 30 right?

[–]thanasiskar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yeah, sorry!

[–]ilovethejoy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wish I could be there - sounds amazinggggg <3

[–]Active_Sock177 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That looks awesome. I saw florence and the machine last month and Florence is in the form of her life. Portugal you are in for a treat.

[–]xelabagus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This album and tour are her magnum opus, breathtaking. That woman is a force of nature.

[–]teadrinkerboy 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I have always wanted to visit Lisbon…

Very curious as to whether this will be it for summer dates though. It’s not easy to know given the irregularity of everything and they don’t even announce it on their socials.

Please put us out our misery and tell us lol

[–]thanasiskar 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I thing they booked these 2 festivals before the allegations. So it seems there will be not other dates this year.

[–]Big_Ad_1457 0 points1 point  (2 children)

There is a Sicily date in Taormina. Posted on venues site but not the bands.

[–]teadrinkerboy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It’s not in the venue’s site? It’s a rumour that’s being reported on some local site

[–]Big_Ad_1457 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was on their earlier this year. But you are right, it no longer appears on the site.

[–]daysweeksmonthsyearCreature Comfort 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So cool! And it’s such a cool city stop! Can’t wait for the hype

[–]morjestaThe Suburbs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i'm still waiting for single day tickets for this festival

[–]morjestaThe Suburbs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They just announced single day tickets, but only for sale in MEO store on Portugal. 🙄
