Festival line-up update: Optimus Primavera Sound, Outlook, Way Out West and more

By | Published on Tuesday 11 February 2014

Optimus Primavera Sound

Over at the Porto-based Optimus Primavera Sound (which isn’t to be mistaken for Primavera Sound, since that’s in Barcelona, Spain) a whole lot of addition action is going on, to the end that the festival’s bill now features The National, Mogwai, Slowdive, Kendrick Lamar, Todd Terje, Sky Ferreira, Midlake, Glasser, St Vincent, Ty Segall and Speedy Ortiz. Optimo!

Oh, and Busta Rhymes has appeared, as if my rap magic, on the line-up at Bestival, which will be the first time he’ll have braved a UK festival. He’s already on the books at Croatia’s Outlook bash, of course, which as of its latest announcement will also play host to Lauryn Hill, Submotion Orchestra, Fatima and Andrew Ashong.
