Longitude Festival 2014: 15 new bands you should see this weekend


Friday | Saturday | Sunday | Spotify playlist & timetable


1. Banks


Main Stage, 4.45pm

My favourite new artist of the year. Jillian Banks makes pop music that is tangled up in modern soul and electronic production. She has a slew of killer songs already and her debut album Goddess doesn’t come out til September. I saw her play at SXSW earlier in the year, I’m really looking forward to seeing her once more, particularly with the added confidence of months of touring.

BANKS - Drowning (Official Music Video)

2. Roosevelt


Heineken Stage, 4.15pm

This German producer’s first EP came out on the ever-reliable UK label Greco Roman in 2013. Roosevelt can create a similar room-shaking rhythm to Caribou as well as disco-leaning dancefloor indie.

Roosevelt - Montreal (Official Video)



Whelan’s 25 stage, 5:30pm

A New Zealand brother/sister duo following in Lorde’s footsteps by working with her producer and co-writer Joel Little on brooding (had to be done) electronic pop. Debut Irish show.

Broods - Never Gonna Change (Official Video)

4. Greg Wilson


Red Bull Music Academy Stage, 7:30pm

A master of DJing and disco edits in particular, Manchester ,man Wilson has a deep, deep knowledge of recorded music. He still uses a reel-to-reel tape machine when DJing. Guaranteed good time dancing.

Greg Wilson - BBC Essential Mix 2009

5. New Jackson


Heineken Stage, 9.30pm

David Kitt’s live electronic house project is helped along with the provisioning of some weird and wonderful archaic synthesizers and Kitt’s vocodered vocals.

Also recommended on Sunday:

Massive Attack, We Cut Corners, Mano Le Tough, James Vincent McMorrow, Bondax, Rudimental, Julio Bashmore, Somadrone.
