Announced earlier today a stellar lineup for WayHome festival 2016 (July 24-26) with no-miss headliners Arcade Fire, The Killers and LCD Soundsystem to name a few (check out full-lineup on poster below).
Even just looking at the festival poster is like having a tough time choosing a show on Netflix! There are just so many great options. After spending the last hour slimming down my list of ‘must see’ acts, here’s what I’ve come up with.
5. Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats
The song ‘SOB’ is a major hit and it will be interesting to see how it translates to a festival show. Squeaking in to the top five over other strong candidates for the sheer novelty.
4. The Arkells
Always a favorite of mine after living in Hamilton for a couple of years. Oh and the new album is catchy as heck.
3. The Arcs
Dan Auerbach’s from the Black Keys launched this side project and it’s been gaining momentum behind the new record
2. The Last Shadow Puppets
Back-to-Back side-projects this one from Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys with Miles Kane
1. Gary Clark Jr.
He’s money. No excuse to miss his performance, plays like Hendrix
