In two weeks time, Lowlands Festival will open its doors to 45,000 revellers from all across the country. With big names such as FFS, The Chemical Brothers, Tame Impala and Enter Shikari all appearing across the weekend, it’ll at times be hard to make a decision on what to see. That decision has just been made harder, because three more names have been added to the lineup as a result of production changes. Read on for more.
The aforementioned production changes, which have not been clearly specified, don’t just mean that there are new additions, but also that other parts of the day schedule have been shuffled around too. Hudson Mohawke has been moved to the Friday (22:15-23:00, India), with his set now clashing with Caribou in the evening. Curtis Harding has also been moved to Friday morning (12:30-13:30, Charlie), his set clashing with absolutely nothing as he opens the whole festival. Years & Years and The Antlers both follow suit.
These two changes subsequently meant that two Saturday spots have opened up. Diplo (above), who will also appear with Major Lazer the following day, is going to take up Mohawke’s evening slot on the Bravo stage. British newcomers Nothing But Thieves will thus fill Harding’s slot in the Charlie tent on Saturday evening. The third addition to the lineup is Leeds singer-songwriter Barns Courtney, who takes up an already vacant slot in the Charlie tent. The Sunday schedule has remained unscathed. Jack Parker
