EPMD, Friendly Fires confirmed for Dour

East Coast rap duo EPMD head up the very last confirmations for this year's Dour Festival in Belgium.

The hip-hoppers are set to be joined at the weekender by UK sensations Friendly Fires as well as pharmacist-cum-techno producer Matzak.

To complete the full line-up for this summer the festival kept things patriotic with the announcement of no less thatn nine emerging Belgian artists including Bony King of Nowhere, Magnus and Kaizer Place.

The other six are Mashed Paper Klub, Airport City Express, Lefto vs Kwistax as well as Ramon Zarate, aMute and the much anticipated Balkan Party with DJ Merdan Taplak.

Finally, the Ullman Kararocké have been confirmed for the Saturday, straight after Belgium's grand Air Guitar Final for a giant bout of karaoke singing.

This unique concept will give punters the chance to below their favourite tunes to thousands of admiring fans and no doubt become an instant you-tube hit in the process.

The day by day and stage by stage breakdowns for the cosmopolitan event were also revealed today (9 June) with Santigold, Vive La Fete, Pet Shop Boys and Aphex Twin + Hecker taking the top spots
