Gig Guide – What next for the Killers? 24-04-2013

The Killers

Mr Reynolds has alleged the band The Killers was imposed against his wishes as a joint headline act for the 2012 event because the majority shareholders in the festival company, the FRD Group, needed that band for their Berlin festival a week later. – RTE News

So, they’re not cool enough for the Picnic, well there’s always Oxygen then, right? Maybe not, as they’ve turned it into an all out dance fest! Yes, I’m troubled for the Killers, and wonder where they’ll find a home during the summer festival season! I guess they have their own mini-festival in the Phoenix park, with Frank Ocean and the Two Door people…

The bands that are cool enough for the Picnic inlcude: Biork, Arctic Monkeys, Fatboy Slim, Franz Ferdinand (are they really that much cooler? honestly?) David Byrne & St Vincent (David Byrne is nearly four times as cool as the Killers), Eels, Ocean Colour Scene, Noah & The Whale, Johnny Marr, Disclosure, Hurts, Mick Flannery, The Walkmen, Baauer, Tiga, Warpaint, Savages, The Strypes, Policia, Chvrches, Parquet Courts, Clinic, Deap Vally and SOAK! Full Details here.

[Update: My Bloody Valentine, The Knife and the Wu-tang Clan added late in the day!]

Oxygen is all about the big beats this year with headliners:  DJs David Guetta and Calvin Harris, Chase & Status, Example, Snoop Lion (AKA Dogg), Alesso, Labrinth, Rita Ora, Pitbull, DJ Fresh, Soulwax, Nero, Rizzle Kicks, Nicky Romero and Sasha among the other heavy-hitters.Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Iggy Azalea, Otto Knows, The Original Rudeboys, Duke Dumont, Erol Alkan, Crookers, Jack Beats, Fake Blood, Congorock, Jacob Plant, Gin ‘N’ Juice, The Dead Prezidents, Al Gibbs, George Fitzgerald, Dave DeValera, John Gibbons, Borgore, Monsta, Ayah Marrar and Danny Byrd.  This line up makes me feel very, very old! Full details are here.
