 This year, European festivals seem to be competing for who can put together the most ridiculously brilliant line-up. This morning, Lowlands festival might have won.The festival, which takes place in The Netherlands in August, will host LCD Soundsystem, The Last Shadow Puppets, Eagles Of Death Metal, Sigur Ros and many more.

And by ‘many more’, we mean Disclosure, Oscar And The Wolf, Chvrches, Jamie Woon, M83, Oh Wonder, Flatbush Zombies, Sum 41, Aurora, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes. Tiggs Da Author… Yep. It’s ridiculous.

Biddinghuizen, the city that plays host to Lowlands, is just an hour’s drive from Amsterdam too – so you can have a few touristy days before or after seeing some of the biggest bands around. Not too shabby.

See the full line-up for Lowlands, which takes place in Biddinghuizen, The Netherlands, between 19 and 21 August, below. Get tickets and more information here.

There were some raised eyebrows over the fact that Tame Impala was the night headliner. Are they really at the “closing festivals” stage of their career already? Why not go with Wilco or Ryan Adams, both of whom—on paper at least—seem like more obvious choices? But Tame Impala proved the skeptics wrong this year, commanding the crowd’s attention and captivating them with their trippy psychedelia. Add to that dreamy, soaring sound a top-notch light show, and you’ve got everything you need for a successful headlining spot. New tracks from this year’s best album “Currents” sounded just as strong as the hits from their excellent Lonerism, and we’re excited to see these guys in the top-billed spot for years to come.
