Laura Marling announces line-up for Southbank show

Laura Marling’s forthcoming gig at the Royal Festival Hall on 11th August has been sold out for some time, but the songstress has only just announced the full line-up.  It is, unsurprisingly, a-maz-ing:

Pete Roe
Ethan Johns
Peggy Sue
Johnny Flynn
Sons Of Noel & Adrian
Andrew Bird
Alessi’s Ark
Mumford & Sons

Things are going to pretty strict at this particular LM gig, as her website makes clear:

It won’t be like your average gig – Laura will be kicking things off herself at 8pm and will remain on stage for the rest of the show. The night will be divided into two hour long halves with a break in the middle.
*MAKE SURE YOU GET THERE ON TIME : late comers will be let in between songs only.*

Whilst the plan for the show isn’t entirely clear, it seems that the bands aren’t ‘support’ as such.  Rather, they’ll all be joining Laura at some point over the course of the evening to bang out some beautiful tunes.

Enjoy, or stamp your feet with jealousy, depending on your ticket situation.
