One headlining act has been confirmed for the first night of the event, which takes place over the weekend of April 29. And the band is… drum roll please… Depeche Mode! Yes gang, frontman Dave Gahan has announced that they will be co-headlining the event. Rumors of other bands have been popping up all over the internet, including Sigur Ros, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Franz Ferdinand and even Roxy Music, but we’ll believe it when we see it.
