Young Legionare and Little Roy become the latest names to join an already jam packed Festival Republic Stage line up.
Little Roy a veteran of over 40 years will be playing his distinctive reggae covers of Nirvana on the FR Stage while a special film about his life and work is set to air on the Alternative stage.
Young Legionnaire are one of this year’s most talked about acts, and why not? The band is led by yourcodenameis:milo and Automatic star Paul Mullen and Bloc Party multi-instrumentalist Gordon Moakes. NME spoke highly of the band’s well received debut album, Crisis Works, saying: “This could have been a vanity effort to prove their worth, but instead they prove that not only does crisis work – so does collaboration.”
Strictly Our Opinion: Festival Republic have pulled off a major coup on the FR Stage by adding one of the year’s most hotly tipped new bands and a distinctive legend who few will have seen before, and who is certain to bring a unique flavour to a festival that has been criticised for predictable bookings in the past.
