The organizers of the Tiense festival Suikerrock have for the next edition of the American funk-r&b-disco-legend Kool & the Gang and the British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) are added to the poster.
The Liverpudlian OMD consists of the duo Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys – two “synth pioneers” with “a very energetic and infectious live performance,” says the festival organiser in a press release. The band acquired in 1980, is widely known with the hitnummer ‘Enola Gay’.
Just like OMD also appears Kool & the Gang on the final day on the stage. Directly following on from OMD, they provide for the closing of the festival.
Other names for Suikerrock, who already had announced his Alanis Morissette, The Goo Goo Dolls, Stan Van Samang, Gers Pardoel, Anouk and White Lies.
Suikerrock has this year from 27 to 29 July.
