Futurama Festival Adds Skids and New Model Army To 2022 Line-Up

Futurama FEstival

The legendary two-day post-punk festival is confirmed to take place Easter weekend in Liverpool, April 16th – 17th 2022.

Liverpool Post-punk and electronic music festival, Futurama initially due in 2020 and delayed twice, is now set to take place Easter Weekend 2022.

With unavoidable line-up changes due to re-scheduling issues, Futurama was unable to secure original headliners Heaven 17. However, the festival organisers are pleased to announce that New Model Army are the new headliners for Saturday. Special guests The Skids are on board as the primary support.

New Model Army

New Model Army played the fifth Futurama in Leeds in 1983, making it perfect sense to headline nearly 40 years later. They have had an outstanding career and are about to embark on their 40th Anniversary Tour in November. One of the best live bands on the circuit, they have a vast and loyal following and are the perfect live act for Futurama 2020.

The Skids, who reformed in 2016, have been wowing audiences with their brilliant and passionate live shows. Although The Skids are Futurama newcomers, Richard Jobson’s The Armoury Show played Futurama 5 at the Queen’s Hall in 1983.

The Skids

Starting as a punk band in 1977, many of their ’80s songs had a post-punk feel. In their five years together, the band made four cracking albums and had countless hits between 1979 and 1981. 

“I have a strong and fond memory of playing the Futurama festival with the Armory Show back in 1983,” recalls frontman Jobson. “It was exactly the kind of event we should have been playing and in the right company such as Death Cult and Killing Joke (Youth is now our producer).

“I feel the same kind of excitement today having been asked to return with the reformed Skids. It’s Rock’n’roll dystopia made cool in a way that JG Ballard would have approved of. Can’t wait”

New Model Army and The Skids make a formidable Saturday evening in Liverpool.
