Gang of Youths added to lineup for Electric Castle festival in Romania

Gang of Youths will perform in Romania for the first time this summer. The band’s been added to the lineup for the Electric Castle festival, which happens over five days in July at Banffy Castle in the town of Cluj-Napoca.

GOY is due to perform on the Main Stage on Thursday, July 18. Headliners at Electric Castle include Florence + The Machine, Limp Bizkit and others.

Tickets for the festival are on sale now.

As always, you can find all upcoming Gang of Youths shows here on Deepest Sighs.

Gang of Youths to headline Bushstock Festival in London

UK fans, mark your calendars and get your tickets now for the 2019 Bushstock Festival in London — Gang of Youths has been announced as a headliner for the June 15 event.

Tickets are on sale now at this link.

If you’re planning to go and maybe not familiar with this festival, pay attention to the small print on that ticketing page, especially this part:

Access to each venue at Bushstock is subject to capacity and the festival accepts no liability and will not offer any ticket refunds if you are unable to attend a specific performance due to the venue being at maximum capacity. You may be required to queue, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

The page explains that Bushstock gigs happen at wineries, churches and the like. I don’t know if that applies to headline acts, too, but better safe than sorry.

This show becomes GOY’s 6th festival of the summer — four in Europe and two in the U.S. They’re also set to play four gigs in London early next month, and then tour across Europe with Mumford & Sons for about a month in April and May.

Gang of Youths’ The Positions Re-Issued Today on Orange Vinyl

If you’ve been looking for a copy of The Positions on vinyl to add to (or complete) your Gang of Youths album collection, good news: It’s been re-issued today in Australia as a double orange vinyl.

I’m seeing it online at shops like JB Hi-Fi, Happy Valley, The Music Vault and Discrepancy Records. Prices range from $50-60 (AUD), which isn’t great … but sure beats the hell out of the $100+ prices that the original vinyl has been selling for around the web.

Finding a photo of the actual vinyl hasn’t been easy; only JB Hi-Fi appears to show a bit of the records themselves:

The Positions is GOY’s debut album, and it turns four years old next month. This is the second re-press; a gold vinyl version was issued in 2017.
