This Wednesday, the organisers of Lowlands 2016 have published the schedule and stage times for the festival that will be held in Biddinghuizen from 19 to 21 August and that have Muse, Noel Gallagher, Sigur Ros, LCD Soundsystem, Foals, Disclosure, Chvrches or The Last Shadow Puppets as the main names. As we want to make it easy for you, here you are some of our tips for every day of the festival:
Friday 19th August
Without a doubt, the most difficult day in regards to stage times! Before 15:00 you can find the shows of Tom Odell, AlunaGeorge and Jake Bugg, so all the guys that will be on working Friday or that will be preparing their tent for the three days of madness.. From here on, a route with Die Antwoord, John Coffey, Paul Kallbrenner, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Warpaint is easy to follow, but at 21 we'll find the biggest clash of the whole festival. Chvrches of Biffy Clyro? It's up to you, but we send a slap on the back of the neck to the organisers, because this clash has no sense when on the Alpha stage will be playing minutes before a band like Oscar and the Wolf. It was too difiicult to change this spot for any of the two Scots bands? To close the first day, what may be better than a mega band like Muse!
Saturday 20th August
After a busy 1st day, if you are not a Dutch guy, you will be able to sleep until late. Before 15:45, when Australian Wolfmother will be at Alpha tent, you will have some local bands as Tributo 2016 and Broederliefde on the main stages, but if you have energy, we recommend you to assist to the Charlie tent and enjoy Whitney's gig at 14:00.. On the afternoon, Nijmegen band De Staat will be at the main tent and they are right now the best dutch band with an amazing live, (so don't miss their show!), while if you are a punk-hardcore fan, don't forget about Sleeping with Sirens and Sum 41 shows at the bravo tent. From here on, buy some beers and enjoy chained the shows of Sigur Rós, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Disclosure! If Disclosure's proposal is too hard for you, at the same time on Heineken tent you will enjoy French M83 on another of the big clashes of the festival.
Sunday 21st August
Some interesting proposals of the last day of the festival will start very soon, like the ones of Jamie Woon (12:15) or legendary Philip Glass (12:50). After that you must choose for AURORA or Børns, two new bands that in the closer future will be playing in bigger stages, and try to recover energy for Damian Marley at Bravo tent (15:05). After him, it will be the time for Eagles of Death Metal, the powerful gig of Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals and the fireworks of Chase & Status in their live version.. The Grand Finale of this edition will be waiting for you with four incredible shows in a row; James Blake, The Last Shadow Puppets, Foals and LCD Soundsystem.
