Legendary synthpop band New Order has been confirmed as a performer at Flow Festival, taking place at Suvilahti in Helsinki, August 12-14. The band’s success story reaches back to the 1980s and its songs have been a staple at clubs and indie discos the world over for past 30+ years. Last fall the band released a comeback album, Music Complete, to a rapturous reception from both fans and critics. Several music medias listed the album as one of the year’s most important releases and Mojo Magazine named New Order their band of the year for 2015.

The Last Shadow Puppets is a project by Alex Turner, known for his work as the front man and songwriter for Arctic Monkeys, and Miles Kane, a familiar face as a member of The Rascals and as a solo performer. They will make their live debut in Finland at this summer’s Flow. Their eagerly awaited new album Everything You’ve Come To Expect is slated for release on April 1.
