    Default Can someone recommend me some of the smaller acts this year?

    below is a list of bands i constantly listen to from last years lineup
    a lot of them discovered because they were there last year

    basically can anyone suggest bands that I may like from this year? Don't say Gogol Bordello, Pulp, Suede or Leftfield or Chem Bros.

    Scala are a Belgian women's vocal choir. One of the Kolacnys directs them and the other plays the piano. They cover rock songs. they sound kinda cool though I don't know how they'll go over for 45 minutes. I assume they are going to have like a 12:30 in the afternoon set, like Section Quartet did a few years ago.
