Live preview of Future MusicFestival 2012
Wed 29th Feb, 2012 in Features
Future Music Festival is finally be upon us! To get us in the mood for the first weekend of musical action we have put together a mini live preview of Future 2012: the set lists, live footage and what to expect when the likes of New Order, Die Antwoord and Aphex Twin make their long-awaited return to our shores.
WHAT TO EXPECT
With an (almost) original line-up fans have every right to be pretty damn excited about the legendary New Order returning to our shores this week.
Of their Paris show last October The Guardian wrote: “On stage, New Order are greeted like returning heroes, Sumner dressed in black and looking leaner than he has for a while. After the opening Elegia, and before they’re even halfway through Crystal, he’s already done his trademark dance: a skip on the spot, a punch of the air and a “Woo!”. When Sumner does his dance that early you know you’re in for a great gig.”
“Age of Consent is a rare live treat, and though it’s nearly 30 years old it sounds fresher than ever. Love Vigilantes is arguably even stronger, the new lineup sounding remarkably tight behind Sumner. By the time they break into a pounding Bizarre Love Triangle, Sumner has ditched his guitar and is relishing the frontman role. He prowls the stage looking half his 55 years. “I feel fine and I feel good,” he sings, dancing from foot to foot, despite the oppressive heat.”
