DOUR, Belgium, 14-17 July: Things are really hotting up over at the Belgian Dour headquarters, with busy reunitees Pulp set to appear alongside fellow line-up newbies Klaxons, Blood Red Shoes, Dananananaykroyd and Architecture Helsinki, and old hands like House Of Pain, Cypress Hill and Pendulum.

GET LOADED IN THE PARK, Clapham Common, London, 12 Jun: The all-new and possibly improved Razorlight get a second mention as so far the sole act to be announced for this London-based one-dayer, which is returning this year after a hiatus.

INDIETRACKS, Midland Railway Centre, Ripley, Derbyshire, 29-31 Jul: Anti-folk anti-hero Jeffrey Lewis, Sweet Nothings, and Canadian rockers The Hidden Cameras are amongst the first crop of acts unveiled for this intimate three-day bash, which is held in aid of the Midland Railway Trust.

Twelve-piece Afro-Cuban stars Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club will also appear at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the festival.

The existing line-up is topped off by Black Lips, Jamie xx, Frank Turner and Yuck.

RELENTLESS BOARDMASTERS, Watergate Bay, Cornwall, 10-14 Aug: Organisers have booked nu-ravers Klaxons to head up proceedings at this sun, sea and surf celebration, despite the band having just cancelled their US tour. The brilliant Bombay Bicycle Club, Breakage and The King Blues are also amongst the latest additions to a bill that already featured Sub Focus, Eliza Doolittle, Andy C and Willy Mason.

, Turkey, 22-29 May: Heading to what is billed as an ‘achingly chic’ beach location on Turkey’s Riviera will be a host of DJ-types led by Radio 1’s Giles Peterson, with jazzman Jose James, house bloke Norman Jay, Theo Parrish and Mad Professor also set to spin some tunes. With these sweaty, dancey vibes set amidst a venue that features a spa and yoga classes for that post-set chilldown, this may just be the festival season’s oddest and best kept secret.
