Blur to headline Swedish Festival

It has been announced that britpop heroes Blur will headline the Swedish Way Out West Festival.

The festival, held in Gothenburg between August 9th-11th will also feature The Black Keys, Refused, Florence + The Machine, Billy Bragg, Bon Iver and Feist.

Blur’s record sales in the UK, meanwhile, have rocketed since the band made an appearance at the 2012 edition of The Brits awards ceremony, where they were given the “Outstanding Contribution to Music” award, which is industry back-slapping parlance for “We wanted to give you something, but you haven’t released any new music for over a decade…” PARKLIFE!
