New Order have been confirmed to play as part of the Future Music Festival 2012 line-up.

Gym Class Heroes
Mark Ronson Vs Zane Lowe
Kill The Noise
Festival organisers Brett Robinson said: “New Order are one of the true pioneer’s of electronica, at the forefront of the new wave movement, and Swedish House Mafia is the biggest electronic band of this time – these two bands alone represent the past and present of music that sit at the very heart and soul of the Future Music Festival.
“New Order is one of the most influential bands of our time and with out festival direction being everything from electronica to indie rock and beyond they are the perfect co-headliner for us and we can wait to see them gracing our stages.”
Other acts already on the Future Music Festival line-up include Swedish House Mafia, Fatboy Slim, Paul van Dyk, Tinie Tempah, The Wombats and Chase & Status as well as Skrillex, Jessie J, The Rapture and Sven Vath.
