New Order, The Black Keys, Florence & The Machine confirmed for Corona Capital festival


New Order, The Black Keys and Florence & The Machine are some of the leading names confirmed today for the 2012 Corona Capital festival.

The two-day event will take place in Mexico City between October 13th-14th, and is third edition of the festival which boasts over 24 hours of continuous music stretched across its four stages.

The Drums, The Vaccines and The Hives are also due for appearances this year among many others.

The news extends New Order’s reunion plans still further after they initially reformed in the absence of their original bass player Peter Hook last year for two benefit gigs in aid of their former video producer Michael Shamberg.

Next month, they will appear on a bill topped by Blur in London’s Hyde Park to celebrate the end of this summer’s London Olympic Games, with a headline spot at Bestival following in September.

In addition, a US tour has also been recently announced for October.
