Alternative rock band Drenge have also been revealed as one of the support acts, the boys are really starting to make a name for themselves since exploding into the mainstream music scene in 2013 with their single ‘Bloodsports’.
Joining Bloc Party and Drenge on the famous tour is up-and-coming Essex lad, Rat Boy who seems to be all over the London music scene at the moment with his indie, hip-hop rock influenced music. And finally completing the bill with some Manchester grime, MC Bugzy Malone who has already been featured on BBC Radio 1Xtra’s live lounge.
