COCKROCK, Wellington Farm, Cockermouth, 20-22 Jul: Tinchy Stryder and Buzzcocks have the illustrious honour of headlining Cockermouth’s principal live event this year, with The Subways, Goldie Lookin Chain, Karl Phillips & The Midnight Ramblers, Doctor & The Medics and Pikey Beatz also amongst those so far featuring on the CockRock roster.

EXIT FESTIVAL, Petrovaradin Fortress, Novi Sad, Serbia, 12-15 Jul: Performing as part of an R&S Records showcase are brand new Exit entrants Lone, Teengirl Fantasy, Pariah and The Chain, who storm the fortress-based festival’s 2012 line-up in line with the likes of Duran Duran and Little Dragon. Guns N Roses, New Order, Plan B, Avicii, Richie Hawtin, Gossip, Wolfmother, Azari & III and TEED make up the remaining line-up as it stands so far.

GUERNSEY FESTIVAL OF PERFORMING ARTS, The Rabbit Warren, Guernsey, 23-24 Jun: With Kaiser Chiefs at the helm, this live music jewel in the Channel Islands crown will also provide the setting for sets by Daniela Brooker, Friction, Utah Saints, Sam Wire and DJ Wrongtom, a long-time affiliate of Guerney’s Old Time New Time Sounds collective, who’ll appear with Deemas J and Limey Banton. This lot joins existing bookings Macy Gray, King Charles, The Selecter, Little Barrie and Kassidy.

MAGIC LOUNGEABOUT, Broughton hall, Skipton, North Yorkshire, 27-29 Jul: New additions including The Charlatans serve to further up the appeal of 2012’s Magic Loungeabout line-up, as also features previous announcements Chic feat Nile Rodgers, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Jenny O and, since they’re seemingly omnipresent festival fixtures this year, Cashier No 9.

SHAKEDOWN, Stanmer Park, Brighton, 6 Oct: Lone headliner Dizzee Rascal is the first and foremost fixture of an otherwise empty Shakedown programme, with further bookings yet to be unveiled.
