Published Jun 02, 2009After a whole month of speculation, the promoters at Sled Island have finally announced the full line-up and schedule of the third annual festival. As we previously announced, the events will take place between June 24 and 27, and include headliners like Andrew WK, Anvil, the Breeders, the Evaporators and Mount Eerie.
Last minute additions to the roster include rappers the Gift of Gab (from Blackalicious) and Biz Markie, Seattle post-hardcore vets These Arms Are Snakes, Brooklyn noise pop dup Japanther, and Canuck punk icons SNFU. It should be noted, however, that due to some miscommunication, Mika Miko posted their attendance to the festival a little prematurely, and will not be performing.
