The Isley Brothers, consisting of remaining members Ronald and Ernie Isley, will be celebrating their 60th anniversary as a group at the fest, bringing the funk with "special guests," Pitchfork reports. GRAMMY winning blues and gospel icon Mavis Staples will bring her long-time musical excellence to the the three-day event as well.
Several innovative acts that got their start in the '90s will be performing: London-based avant-garde dream-pop group Stereolab, Scottish folk-pop band Belle & Sebastian and Swedish GRAMMY-nominated MC Neneh Cherry, who earned a nod for Best New Artist at the 32nd GRAMMY Awards in 1999.
The festival prides itself on highlighting emerging talent; some of the up-and-comers on the lineup are 20-year-old dream-pop artist Clairo, L.A.-based social activist/rapper JPEGMAFIA, French-Cuban electro-soul sister duo Ibeyi and 21-year-old NYC-based rapper Rico Nasty.
Weekend and single day tickets are on sale now; visit the fest's site for more info and the complete lineup.
