Islands, Ra Ra Riot Added to Siren Fest Lineup

The two acts will join Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Broken Social Scene, Annuals, Helio Sequence and many more at Brooklyn, NY's Coney Island July 19.

As if the original lineup for this summer’s installment of the Village Voice’s Siren Fest wasn’t enough, Montreal collective Islands and indie-poppers Ra Ra Riot have now been added to the bill, and will join the likes of Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks and Broken Social Scene at Coney Island July 19.

While you wait out the remaining month, and relish over the thought of a tasty Nathan’s hotdog, check out video of Islands performing “The Arm” at Spin’s Coachella pool house, and Ra Ra Riot strumming out a rare acoustic version of “Dying is Fine” at SXSW.
