Franz Ferdinand booked for Krakow festival

KRAKOW TOURS: Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand will play at this summer’s Coke Live Festival in Krakow.

The Glasgow band’s confirmation puts them on the same bill as Florence and the Machine, promising plenty of interest from music fans both from Poland and beyond.

Franz Ferdinand, who take their name from the ill-starred Habsburg archduke whose assassination sparked the First World War, blazed to fame in 2004 with hit single “Take Me Out.”

The group is currently immersed in rustling up their fourth studio album, meaning that fans should be able to savour some fresh material at the festival.

Also newly confirmed are fellow Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro, whose last album Opposites topped the UK charts.

Krakow’s annual Coke Live Festival was first held in 2006, and previous guests have included Kanye West, Kaiser Chiefs, Jay Z, Placebo, The Prodigy and Snoop Lion (formerly known as Snoop Dogg).

This year’s edition runs from 9-10 August, and will be held within the grounds of the city’s Aviation Museum.
