Are you heading to Electric Picnic? If so, are you happy with the line-up?

Duran Duran have been announced as one of the festival's headliners. They'll be joining the likes of Chaka Khan, Madness, the Pretenders and the Divine Comedy as part of the line-up. But are there too many nostalgia acts this year?

Today FM's Nadine O'Regan feels that these types of acts "suck up the money that younger acts could have been getting" and that someone like The Weekend "would have injected a different sensibility into the line-up."

But John Cadell of RockYouLike.com maintains that music has no age, and that nostalgia acts "still have an audience and songs that people want to hear."

Where do you stand on the issue? Do people have a right to complain if they bought tickets before the line-up was announced? And has Electric Picnic become more about the overall festival experience than the music?
