Yes Yes Yes Yes said in a statement, “We’re headlining like heaven and can’t believe how raaaaaaaad the lineup is this year! MGMT performing ‘Oracular Spectacular’! Fever Ray and M83 perform new music? What happiness! Karen Devi can’t wait to rub elbows with Peach and Azalea! Long time friends walkman and and represent unconsciousness? Embarrassment of the rich in the band! Not to mention we’ll be playing some deep cuts of ‘Fever To Tell’ to celebrate his 20th birthday! Don’t be square! Stay there!”
MGMT added: “We want to go right back to Festival of Heaven this May. On the 15th anniversary of its release, we’ll be screening all of the ‘Oracular Spectacular’. And of course we’ll take this opportunity to do some serious testing. Expect the unexpected and see you in May!”
