King Midas Sound, Darkstar and Photek for L.E.V. 2011

Spanish festival L.E.V. have recently announced the first round of names for the 2011 edition of the festival.

Based in Gijón, Northern Spain, the festival has a habit of rounding up some of the finest names in the business and this year is no different.

2011 brings The Bug’s side project, King Midas Sound to the stage as headliners. Icelandic ambient classical composer Jóhann Jóhannsson will be playing, as well as the post-bass auteurs Darkstar. The festival also makes a return to the live stage for Photek and Jon Hokins who has just scored the stunning sci-fi film Monsters.

All in all, a nice unique alternative to the monsterous Sonar which takes place every summer near to Barcelona. More details to come but in the mean time watch this space for more names.
