Camp Bestival

CAMP BESTIVAL, Lulworth Castle, Dorset, 29-31 Jul: James Vincent McMorrow, Alessi’s Ark and Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer feature highly amongst recent additions to Rob Da Bank’s rip-roaring Camp Bestival bill. Older news in terms of line-up announcements are slated sets by the likes of Blondie, Laura Marling, Primal Scream and Mark Ronson.

GUILFEST, Stoke Park, Guilford, 15-17 Jul: Organisers have boosted Guilfest’s indie appeal (well, sort of) with the announcement that Noisettes and Echo & The Bunnymen will appear at the family-friendly Guilford-based fest. Performances from The Saw Doctors and Nero are also on the cards, as are DJ sets from Pendulum and Modestep. The novelty factor abounds on the existing bill, with Pete Andre, N-Dubz and Razorlight all set to stun alongside more respectable musicians (well, sort of) like Roger Daltrey, Adam Ant, John Lydon and Public Image Ltd, Erasure and Ziggy Marley.

HEVY, Port Lympne Wildlife Park, Kent, 5-8 Aug: A raft of rock names including Trash Talk, OFF!, Title Fight, The Xcerpts and While She Sleeps join longer-standing line-up residents Funeral For A Friend, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Architects on the hefty Hevy bill.

ICELAND AIRWAVES, various venues, Reykjavík, 2-16 Oct: Austra, SBTRKT, Murmansk, Elephant Stone, Snorri Helgason, Wistaria, The Vintage Caravan and Yoda Remote are all fresh on the icy-cool Airwaves bill, lining up with previously confirmed acts like Best Coast, The Vaccines, Tune-Yards and legends of crab-core Endless Dark.

PRIDE BRISTOL, Castle Park, 16 Jul: Kelis is the first headliner locked down for Bristol’s one-day celebration of music and gay pride, with more acts to be announced shortly.

WYCHWOOD, Cheltenham Racecourse, Gloucestershire, 3-5 Jun: Newly-announced acts including Scottish songwriter Eddie Reader and retiring Britpopsters The Bluetones will be joining in with the congenial atmosphere at this family-friendly bash. Fans can also expect a solo appearance by Eliza Carth of The Gift Band, as well as performances from such already confirmed acts as Cornershop, The Waterboys and Roddy Woomble.
