New Order continued out of Joy Division after singer Ian Curtis died in 1980. At that point they brought in keyboard player and guitarist Gillian Gilbert and guitarist Bernard Sumner stepped up to the lead singer role.

New Order split in 1993 and reformed in 1998 but then split again in 2007 after Peter Hook left the band. At that time, Sumner formed Bad Lieutenant with guitarist Phil Cunningham, released one album and then earlier this year brought Cunningham into the reformed New Order minus Hook.

The Future Music Festival has also announced Jessie J, Swedish House Mafia and Fatboy Slim for the bill in 2012.

Other acts include Tinie Tempah, The Wombats, Skrillex, The Rapture, Paul van Dyk, Chase & Status Live, Sven Vath, Aphex Twin Live, Die Antwood, The Naked and Famous, Gareth Emery, Jamie Jones, James Murphy & Pat Maloney, Hercules & Love Affair, Azari & III, Frank Ocean, Alex Metric, Holy Ghost!, Juan Maclean, Benoit & Sergio, Horse Meat Disco, Gnomerella and The Strafford Brothers.

The Future Music Festival is on March 11 at Flemington Racecourse, Melbourne.
