My Bloody Valentine lead French bill...

Taking place in Saint Malo, the annual La Route Du Rock festival always attracts its share of super acts, and the 2009 installment is no different.

Held across three locations on August 14-16 - with stages at the beach, casino and castle - La Route's line-up for this summer features returning shoegaze titans My Bloody Valentine, the much-celebrated Horrors, US acts Gang Gang Dance and Grizzly Bear, and many more.

The confirmed bill looks a lot like this (further additions to come):

A Place To Bury Strangers
Forest Fire
Gang Gang Dance
Grizzly Bear
Crystal Stilts
My Bloody Valentine
The Kills
Peaches (with Sweet Machine)
Simian Mobile Disco (live)
The Horrors
Four Tet
Camera Obscura

Bill Callahan
Marissa Nadler

That... is pretty brilliant, all told. Get more information, travel details and more at the festival's official website, and look for a ticket competition on real soon.
