Festivals keep coming up with annoyingly complicated ways to announce their 2015 linueps. Bonnaroo did their call-in thing, and now Spain’s famed Primavera Sound Festival has shared its lineup through an app called Line-App. Those of us who didn’t bother to download the thing can watch a three-minute animated video instead. Some highlights: This appears to be the only festival so far to have booked Sleater-Kinney; notable reunions from Ride, Babes In Toyland, and the Replacements (if they still count as a reunion act) made the cut; not one, not two, but three Strokes-related projects will perform, with the main band headlining plus performances from Albert Hammond Jr. and Julian Casablancas + The Voidz. Also on deck: Run The Jewels, Interpol, Ariel Pink, Belle & Sebastian, Panda Bear, Swans, James Blake, Tune-Yards, Fucked Up, Iceage, the Black Keys, Caribou, Strand Of Oaks, Dan Deacon, DIIV, Mikal Cronin, Twin Shadow, Perfume Genius, American Football, Tobias Jesso Jr., Viet Cong, José González, Torres, Spiritualized, Death From Above 1979, Pharmakon, Shabazz Palaces, Shellac, the Thurston Moore Band, Mac DeMarco, the Juan MacLean, and Sun Kil Moon among many others. An alphabetical list begins about 2:10 into the video below, or you can check out the poster above.
