This follows several line-up announcements that were met with mixed reception from fans, many of whom were expecting stronger names from the rock spectrum, especially after the reveal of Calvin Harris and Ke$ha as prominent acts

Foo Fighters join a crop of new additions, which include Blood Orange, Suchmos, Pond, Whitney and more.

The announcement was made through Foo Fighters' official website and social media posts by Summer Sonic.

There's no news if Foo Fighters will embark upon a full Asian tour including Singapore, but if there's any good time to redeem themselves for the 2012 cancellation, it's now.
