The stage times announcement also brings with it the addition of six new acts to the line up. New Jackson, Neon Wolf and Jennifer Evans will perform this weekend alongside DJs Colin Perkins, Niall D’arcy and Aaron Dempsey.

Yesterday RobMoro brought news about the Longitude app and site map. So today with the news of those all important stage times, here are some acts worth checking out.

Wyvern Lingo

You may recognise them if you have seen any of their performances with Hozier, either as part of his band or even on their support slots as a now independent act in their own right.  Wyvern Lingo are about to exploded on the scene in Ireland for sure, as the size of venues rapidly increases.

Josef Salvat

Having soundtracked a Sony TV advert with a hair-raising cover of Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’, Josef also has some great original songs too, such as ‘Open Season’, ‘Every Night’, and ‘ Till I Found You’.

Glass Animals

Third time in a year and a half that the UK act have travelled to Dublin.  Sold out shows in Whelan’s and The Academy can give you an idea of how popular these guys are.  Best tracks are ‘Pools’, ‘Black Mambo’, and ‘Gooey’.  Slick and soothing melodies over intricate rhythms.

Toro Y Moi

Having collaborated on many tracks, with one of the better being ‘Come Alive’ by Chromeo, Toro Y Moi is kind of funky but definetly the sort of music for “chillwave” fans.

Girl Band

Dublin’s own Girl Band are rapidly making a name for themselves in the UK. Going into the studio (Bow Lane, Dublin) to record an album and releasing it later this year, this is a set that will pack a punch for sure.

All Tvvins

Conor (The Cast Of Cheers) and Lar (Adebisi Shank) have made waves in the last year.  Singles ‘Thank You’ and ‘Too Young To Live’ have gathered much attention, so much in fact that they have played sold out shows in Whelan’s and support Passion Pit on a number of European dates (Which excluded Ireland for some reason).
