CAMBRIDGE FOLK FESTIVAL, Cherry Hinton Hall Grounds, Cambridge, 28-31 Jul: Rumer, Villagers, Home Service, Caitlin Rose and Peatbog Faeries are a choice quintet of acts from the folk fest’s freshest line-up additions. They join a host of guitar-toting troubadours like Frank Turner, Newton Faulkner, Richard Thompson and Laura Marling.

, The Roundhouse, Camden, London, throughout Jul: Foo Fighters are the latest big name announced on the star-studded iTunes roster. The band are set to play a show on 11 Jul at Camden’s Roundhouse, a relatively intimate venue for the stadium rockers. Adele, Linkin Park, Beady Eye and Jessie J are amongst those already on the billing for this month-long extravaganza, which is free to competition winners.

SOUTHERN SOUNDS, Clapham Common, London, 11 June: Doing their bit to bring some chilly northern exposure to the planet’s sub-equatorial music scene, Southern Sounds organisers have booked Shihad and Just Jinjer to support the previously-announced INXS. The bonzer bash will also host an array of antipodean talent, including Jayson Norris, Town Hall Steps, Lotus Mason and Melic.

STAG AND DAGGER, London, 19 May: Co-ordinators of the London edition have confirmed a line-up of new and emerging acts including Ghostpoet, DELS, Big Deal, Mazes and No Joy alongside more established acts like Wire, Toro Y Moi and New Young Pony Club. How exciting.

WIRELESS, Hyde Park, London, 1-3 Jul: Chipmunk, Alexis Jordan and Jodie Connor are all new to Wireless’ urban-themed first day bill, with Modestep and Maverick Sabre joining the electro-dominated Saturday line-up. Pop-goth brat Taylor Momsen’s band The Pretty Reckless have been added to the rockin’ Sunday programme, along with Neon Trees and Funeral Party. Setting the tone on each of the three rosters are previously announced co-headliners The Black Eyed Peas, The Chemical Brothers and Pulp.
