ATP’S I’LL BE YOUR MIRROR, Alexandra Palace, London, 25-27 May: Taking the curatorship mantle from this year’s hosts Portishead, Mogwai have invited the likes of Slayer, Guided By Voices, Mudhoney, Codeine, Sleep, Melvins and Yuck to perform across what’s sure to be three memorable nights of live music at the Ally Pally. And, FAO thrash fans: Slayer are slated to perform their 1986 album ‘Reign In Blood’ in its entirety during their set on Friday.

BENICASSIM, Valencia, Spain, 12-15 Jul: Hurrah! The resurgent Stone Roses are spearheading the announcements for next year’s Benicassim bill, with more headliners and acts set to be revealed in the coming months.

FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL, Naeba Skir Resort, Japan, 27-29 Jul: Hurrah! The Stone Roses book another date for their first festival summer as a band since reuniting. More acts tbc.

HIDEOUT FESTIVAL, Zrce Beach, Pag, Croatia, 29 Jun – 1 Jul: Dance types Skrillex, Skream, Caribou, Annie Mac, Erol Alkan and Jack Beats lead the first raft of acts booked for next year’s edition of this Croatian bash.

T IN THE PARK, Balado, Scotland, 6-8 Jul: And thrice hurrah! It’s those Stone Roses again, headlining away as the first act on the 2012 T roster, with the remaining line-up yet to be announced. Personally, I quite like it as it is.

WIRELESS, Hyde Park, London, 6-8 Jul: Pop pistolette Rihanna seems primed to head up proceedings at next year’s Wireless fest, delivering this inspirational message to prospective ticket-buyers: “I’m so excited to be headlining Barclaycard Wireless next year!
