Other notable announcements and developments today…

• The Music Venue Trust has announced the addition of a new strand to its Venues Day event called Venue Futures, which will be curated by Deviate Digital’s Sammy Andrews. The strand will give “tech companies, digital marketing companies and start-ups the chance to connect with independent venues from all over the UK”. Venues Day is 17 Oct. Companies interested in taking part in Venue Futures should email by 4 Sep.

• The final speakers have been announced for the London edition of the FastForward music industry event, with Ticketmaster’s Sophie Crosby, Sony Music’s Dusko Justic and Sony/ATV’s Miranda Kempin among the latest additions to the line up. The Association Of Independent Music is also offering five emerging labels the chance to win free tickets to the conference. FastForward London is on 15 Sep.

• The other band members have been cast in the long-in-development Queen biopic that is finally in production. Ben Hardy will play Roger Tayor, Gwilym Lee will play Brian May and Joe Mazzello will play John Deacon. As previously reported, Rami Melk is on board to play Freddie Mercury.

• King Krule has posted a one-minute teaser video featuring new music onto the Facebooks. How very modern.

• New Gary Numan track everybody! ‘And It All Began With You’ comes from Numan’s 22nd album ‘Savage (Songs From A Broken World)’, which is out on 15 Sep via BMG.

• Here’s the video for latest Ride single ‘Cali’. It’s described as a “psychedelic surf video” and a “kaleidoscopic video”. So that’s fun.

• Liam Payne, Rita Ora, The Vamps, Camila Cabello and Dua Lipa will all perform at BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards 2017 at Wembley Arena on 22 Oct. Excited? No? Are you a ‘teen’? Then fuck off then. Assuming you said “no” to that last question. This one liner only really works if you said “no” to that last question.
