On the strength of the first line-up alone, 2012 looked set to be Future Music Festival’s biggest year yet. And now there’s even more. Today’s the day we can reveal who is joining the touring party next March, and it’s a heavyweight list.

At the top of the second line-up is a truly iconic act, New Order. The last time we saw the group in Australia was Big Day Out 2002, where they lit up the mainstage with a brilliant set-list. In fact, if you delve deep into the inthemix archives, you’ll find a glowing review from Sydney. “The vibe running through the reminiscing crowd was unforgettable,” our reviewer wrote. “In the closing minutes, the boys delivered the almighty Blue Monday in the setting sun.”

Festival Director Brett Robinson explained that New Order were the perfect band for Future’s 2012 edition, stating “New Order is one of the most influential bands of our time and with our festival direction being everything from electronica to indie rock and beyond, they are the perfect co-headliner for us and we can wait to see them gracing our stages.” As for the absence of one Peter Hook, Robinson continued “A band is bigger than any one member and in the case of New Order they represent an entire movement and an iconic moment in music that has become timeless and coveted.”

Of course, the star power doesn’t stop there. The trance contingent led by Paul van Dyk and Gareth Emery has filled out its ranks with proven asset John O’Callaghan and hotly-tipped talent Orjan Nilsen (in a recent interview with inthemix, Armin van Buuren earmarked Nilsen as his young star of 2011).

While the first line-up came with plenty of live muscle, this round ups the ante. Friendly Fires, Gym Class Heroes and Professor Green all enjoyed spectacular Northern summers, so they’ll be well-oiled for the FMF stage.

Following on from Pendulum’s raucous showing on the last Future Music Festival circuit, the band’s masterminds Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen will bring their Knife Party project to the stage.

The second line-up also sees UK tastemakers Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe road-testing their new DJ alliance, while there’ll be plenty of fans cheering the addition of Oliver Huntemann, Kill The Noise and US wunderkind Porter Robinson. Check out the full list below, and make sure the date is set in your diary!
