Hamilton’s Supercrawl is growing, and now has a Saturday night headliner — the U.S. indie rock band Spoon.

Organizers announced some of the performing acts on a “sneak peak” post on the festival’s website. The festival will also expand over three days for the first time this year.

Will Ferrell lovers might recognize Spoon and the song The Way We Get By from the Soundtrack to 2006’s Stranger Than Fiction. “Austin's Spoon have consistently been regarded as one of the best bands of the past decade,” the website post reads.

Spoon will headline the Supercrawl main stage just after the release of their eighth studio album They Want My Soul.

UK electronic artist Four Tet was also announced, as well as a package of artists from the UK’s Hyperdub label like Hamilton’s Jessy Lanza (who just made the Polaris Prize long list) as well as label founder Kode9, Ikonika, DJ Spinn, and Scratcha DVA.

This is Supercrawl’s sixth anniversary, and it’s taking place on September 12, 13, and 14 on James Street North. Admission is free.
