New Order lead Future Music Festival's live stage

Image for New Order lead Future Music Festival's live stage

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been getting a steady drip-feed of announcements for DJ-heavy stages at Future Music Festival. But with the Future line-up boasting a stack of killer live acts as well as those behind the turntables (New Order, anyone?), it seemed only right that said acts should get a nice big stage of their own.

Fittingly then, a nice big stage is just what they’ve got. Future have revealed that the colourfully-titled Mazda 2 Flamboyant Flamingo Stage is set to host performances from The Rapture, Friendly Fires and, yes, New Order. Naturally, the Manchester legends will be leading the stage, and rounding out the bill is UK trio The Wombats, New York’s Gym Class Heroes, electro-poppers The Naked and Famous and cockney rapper Professor Green.

Today’s news, together with the previously announced Ear Storm Records Stage, Likes of You tent, Evolution Arena and DFA Records Stage, means that the big names presently without a home (and presumably destined for the main stage) include co-headliners Swedish House Mafia, drop master Skrillex and legend Fatboy Slim. So then, whereabouts will you be spending your day?

Is this going to mean painful 30 minute gaps between acts if they are all live bands? It really kills the atmosphere at Good Vibes. Wouldnt it be better having some of the smaller intl/big Oz name DJs in between to keep up the momentum?
