Arguably more wrinkles than last year, but in addition to his band’s new press photo above, Win Butler told NME that Arcade Fire are “really looking forward to playing the new songs live” at the festival, likening himself to “an inventor emerging from his basement after a year’s work.” Tickets went on-sale today.

  1. Arcade Fire, QOTSA and the Libertines are the only head turners.

  2. Like Like Like everything, I cant imagine anyone going to the main stage to see Gun’r, no one will probably even be there to perform, plus LCD is just too Good
