alt-J and Vetusta Morla added to Vida 2021 festival lineup
More acts are expected to also join the lineup which keeps most of the names that were due to play the 2020 edition
alt-J and Vetusta Morla are among the new headliners for the Vida 2021 festival, which will be held in Vilanova i la Geltrú, a seaside town south of Barcelona, from July 1-3 next year.
The festival announced on Thursday these two additions to the lineup, as well as Andrew Combs and the Catalan group BOYE.
The four additions join a lineup for 2021 that very closely resembles the festival that would have taken place in the 2020 edition, which was suspended due to the ongoing pandemic.
The festival management points out, however, that there are still more artists to be confirmed. Next week they plan to detail the lineup by days, and day tickets will also go on sale.
alt-J released their latest album in 2017, ‘Relaxer’, with hits like ‘In Cold Blood’ and remixes done with collaborations from Little Simz and Pusha T, among others. The English band debuted in 2012 and since then has been characterized by an indie-rock style with touches of electronica and pop that create mesmerizing atmospheres.
Vetusta Morla also released her latest album three years ago, 'Mismo Sitio, Distinto Lugar', with which they reaffirmed a long career of more than twenty years, five studio albums, two live shows and an original soundtrack for to a video game. The Madrid band is known for their suggestive lyrics and is considered the most successful Spanish indie-rock group of recent years.
As for Andrew Combs, he released ‘Ideal Man’ in 2019, an album worked on with producer and sound engineer Sam Cohen, where atmospheric synthesizers and distorted electric guitars predominate.
In the case of the latest addition to Vida, BOYE, it is the stage name of the Catalan stage creator, actor, and singer David Menéndez.
