M.I.A, Bad Religion and Groove Armada are just a few acts that have been announced to feature at this year’s EXIT festival. Look here for ticket prices, acts information and student deals…
On the Main Stage at Exit festival this year – M.I.A. will be bringing some girl power to EXIT. British artist M.I.A. will perform on Friday July 8. Her eclectic compositions combing elements of hip-hop, electronica, dance, alternative and world music is back. After two acclaimed albums 2005’s ‘Arular’ and 2007’s ‘Kala’, the global success of Paper Planes, Oscar nominations, and that Grammys performance, M.I.A returned to form with last years release ‘// / Y /’. The album is an uncensored screen-grab of 2010 and fans can experience this new material live at EXIT.
Bad Religion will also play the Main Stage. They are considered one of the most successful independent punk acts, selling over five million albums worldwide, having released 15 studio albums, and achieved their greatest success with their 1994 album ‘Stranger Than Fiction’, which obtained gold status in the US. The same album also spawned their well known hits ’21st Century (Digital Boy)’ and ‘Infected’. Vocalist Greg Graffin has been the only constant member throughout the years, although the band currently features three of the original members.
Meanwhile in the legendary Dance Arena, Groove Armada will be unveiling their new Red Light ‘Decks & FX’ show on Saturday July 9. Over the past decade Groove Armada have become one of the most loved and biggest selling dance acts. They enjoyed success during their career so far with their second album ‘Vertigo’ released in 1999 reaching platinum sales in the UK and the follow up ‘Goodbye Country: Hello Nightclub’ going Gold. 2010 saw ‘Black Light’, their sixth studio album reaching critical acclaim and a Grammy Nomination for Best Electronic Album and 2011 now sees the duo opening a new and exciting chapter of their musical life. Festival favourites Andy Cato and Tom Findlay are back behind the decks with their new project Red Light.
To end Saturday night’s proceedings will be Better Lost Than Stupid aka Martin Buttrich, Davide Squillace and Matthias Tanzmann. From Circo Loco parties in Ibiza to poolside parties in Miami, and now to Exit Festival for Saturday’s infamous Dance Arena closing set. Also introducing Maya Jane Coles, with her forthcoming EPs on Mobilee Records, her ability to create songs and not just music for dancefloors will no doubt elevate her status even further. Another fresh talent for EXIT will be Union who will be starting the proceedings on Sunday with their unique take on ‘crunkstep’ along with a selection of tunes.
