Philedelphia’s the War on Drugs reside at the blurred edges of American music: overexposing studio limitations, piling tape upon tape to maximum density, and then — with each song — they pull off the scaffolding to reveal what sticks, keeping only what’s absolutely necessary and dig into what sounds like the best kind of messed up.  No strangers to playing at our festival this band has sky rocketed to success after performing here just a few years ago as one of the first bands of the day!  Always exploring new ideas and branching out creatively their set should not be missed.

It’s been over two years since The War On Drugs‘ critically praised album, Slave Ambient, came out and the Philadelphia band’s newest offering, Lost In The Dream is now out worldwide and receiving glowing reviews.

Critics praise the new album:

“the band’s most lustrous, intricately detailed, and beautifully rendered record to date” – Pitchfork | Best New Music

“If Slave Ambient represented a breakthrough, this one is an out-and-out star-maker that should rank among the year’s best albums” – SPIN | 9/10

“Adam Granduciel’s impassioned songs stop short of lighters- aloft choruses, twisting buffed-up sounds into exquisite shapes” – The Guardian | ★★★★
