The rockers were confirmed to play a distinctly indie thursday night alongside Kaiser Chiefs and the Gossip. Lily Allen is pencilled in for the Friday with headliners Placebo, while Amy Macdonald will help open proceedings on the Wednesday with Coldplay at the helm.
The announcement highlights a budding musical partnership with Rock Werchter, just across the border
in Belgium. With this in mind, a few more big names could be popping down to the Main Square in Arras
from 2 - 5 July.
Tickets for the festival are on sale priced from €50 for day tickets, €140 for three day passes and €170 for the four days. Camping tickets are also available.
