Helsinki, Finland -- Flow Festival has added post-rock pioneers Slint to its 2014 bill, who will join headliners The National, Outkast, Yasiin Bey (AKA Mos Def), and Janelle Monáe. See the full lineup below.
Slint has played infrequently since their 1992 breakup. This particular reunion corresponds with April's reissue of Spiderland - the massively influential 1991 cult classic - as well as the release of a Lance Bangs-directed documentary on the band entitled Breadcrumb Trail. Slint will also appear at Forecastle Festival and FYF Fest.
Flow Festival will take place August 8-10, and tickets are currently on-sale with three-day passes going for €159, two-day for €135, and single-day for €89.
