Hackney's Visions festival has announced the first acts of its 2016 line-up, with Mykki Blanco, Young Fathers, Anna Calvi and Norwegian producer Lindstrom already signed up for what is sure to be another sold out edition of the festival, now in its fourth year.

Also joining the awesome line-up are London's creepy-sweet indie boys Gengahr and their 2015 tour mates Pumarosa, rising grime MC Elf Kid, 19 year old newcomer The Japanese House, psych rock band Ulrika Spacek and art-ravers Drones Club, joined by US noise rock duo Lightning Bolt and hard-core band Show Me The Body.

Visions will take place on Saturday 6 Augustacross six venues in Hackney: St John at Hackney, Oval Space, the Laundry, London Fields Brewhouse, Moth Club and Netil House rooftop. Early bird tickets have already sold out, but the first release is available at £30, for a wristband that gives admission to all six venues.
