It kind of depends what sort of music you like...

There are about 3 acts on the bill of whom I've never heard (sorry Ernest Ranglin, somehow I've missed out on your work).

Personally I'd be making a bee line for John Grant, Beck, young Polly Jane, Gregory Porter, Roisin Murphy, Grimes. And, of course ZZ Top and ELO.

Think I'd give Coldplay and Bastille a miss ;-)

Underworld

PJ Harvey

ZZ Top

Carl Cox

maybe New Order if they play lots of old stuff.

They are the only ones I can see worth any effort. The rest are shit/dull/boring delete as per.

Adele AND Coldplay, surely there's a law against such cruel and unusual punishment!

There will be at least another 100 acts who didn't make the poster.

Ernest Ranglin, born 1932. He's been around for a while. A long while. Now that's a pleasant surprise.

ZZ Top for me, they're about the only ones worth seeing especially as they are playing the early blues stuff nowadays
