The Falls Festival has just announced its first round of acts and already it's looking pretty awesome because King Kahn and The Shrines are headlining. Now, if you don't know, King Kahn is the newest Vice Records signing and they're ridiculous live. Add to that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Major Lazer, Grizzly Bear and Midnight Juggernauts and you've pretty much got enough great music to fix what has so far been a pretty shitty year (seriously, what is with it?).
So if you can think of a better way to ring in the easiest to say year since 1990 good luck to you. Otherwise, burn these details into your memory now.
