Friday nights at Nasimi Beach have become an exciting affair. Just as the sands were cleared of debris following Noel Gallagher’s performance on Friday,  Sandance organisers announce Florence + The Machine  are to play at the next installment of the festival on May 10.
Lead singer Florence Welch and keyboard player Isabella “Machine” Summers together with a collaboration of other artists make up the indie rock band that is taking the world by storm. Their recent hits with Calvin Harris — ‘Spectrum (Say My Name)’ and ‘Sweet Nothing’ — have dominated the airwaves and dance floors.
And it’s a rare chance to se the act, as it’s likely to be Florence + the Machine’s only gig this year — the band plan to take a year off from touring to work on their third album.
