MORE NAMES FOR FUTURAMA!

The revamped Futurama Festival has announced a third wave of additions to the line-up, led by Manchester post-punk/dance pioneers A CERTAIN RATIO.

Post-punk veterans CLOCK DVA, SEX GANG CHILDREN and THE BLUE ORCHIDS have also been added alongside newcomers such as fast-rising Norwegian newcomers POM POKO and hotly-tipped Essex punks THE MEFFS, whose new video Vive Le Rock! premiered last week. It’s also been announced that SPEAR OF DESTINY will now be replacing Kirk Brandon’s other band, the previously announced Theatre Of Hate.

As previously announced, the cutting edge festival which was first staged at Leeds’ Queen’s Hall and ran for several years during the 80s will be reborn in Liverpool at the hands of festival founder John Keenan and Liverpool promoter Marc Jones.

Taking place over the weekend of 11-12 September, the festival will feature four stages across three venues – the Invisible Wind Factory, Make Arts Centre and Ten Streets Social in the Stanley Dock / Regent Road area of Liverpool. The main stages will be hosted by Vive Le Rock! and Louderthanwar.

The latest line-up additions will be joining previously announced headliners HEAVEN 17 (Saturday 11) and PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT and THE CHAMELEONS.
