This just in from Audioscope….eeek…
After months of planning, we’re really pleased to be able to bring you one of the most diverse and exciting Audioscope lineups yet, and one of which we’re very proud.
Audioscope11 will be headlined by West Virginian desert rock legends Karma To Burn, bringing the festival to a close with an hour of uncompromising stoner rock instrumentals.
Other highlights include: Brighton’s krautrock-influenced dance-pop outfit and BBC 6music favourites Fujiya & Miyagi; the blissful drones of ATP Recordings/Thrill Jockey star Alexander Tucker, one of the most exciting and innovative solo artists around; Cardiff-based art-rockers The Victorian English Gentlemen’s Club; doom electronica specialists Necro Deathmort, one of the highlights of last year’s Supersonic Festival; and Bletchley’s Glenn Branca-inspired noise band Action Beat, who can feature up to six guitarists and two drummers.
The festival also boasts some of Oxford’s best talent in the form of Spring Offensive, The Cellar Family and Listing Ships.
The full lineup is:
- Karma To Burn
