Benicassim 2012

BENICASSIM, FIB Heineken, Valenica, Spain, 12-15 Jul: Organisers have added British favourites Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Miles Kane and Bombay Bicycle Club to this year’s Benicassim bill, thus providing some much-needed company for existing line-up residents The Stone Roses, Florence And The Machine and The Vaccines.

FIELD DAY, Victoria Park, London, 2 Jun: The folk in charge at Field Day have named fresh additions including Blood Orange, Blawan, Friends, Korallreven, Liars and Modeselektor to accompany such afore-announced acts as Franz Ferdinand, Beirut, SBTRKT, Rustie and The Vaccines at East London’s finest one-day festival.

ØYA, Middelalderparken, Norway, 7-11 Aug: Refused, A$AP Rocky, Feist and Florence And The Machine form the latest batch of acts to extend Øya’s rather laudable 2012 line-up, which also boasts Björk, Azealia Banks, Pulp and The Stone Roses.

REBELLION, Winter Gardens, Blackpool, 2-5 Aug: John Lydon’s PiL are safely locked in as Saturday night headliners at this Brighton bash, with apt company coming from the noisesome likes of Rancid, Bow Wow, The Enemy and Kunt & The Gang.

ROCK WERCHTER, Rotselaar, Belgium, 28 Jun-1 Jul: Further enriching the meaty Werchter roster are fresh announcements The Cure, Elbow, Snow Patrol, dues and Kasabian, as are non-rock types including Skrillex, Katy B, Wiz Khalifa and Beirut. They join Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Florence And The Machine and Justice on what’s shaping up to be a very mixed bill.

SZIGET FESTIVAL, Budapest, Hungary, 8-13 Aug: Placebo, Hurts, Noah And The Whale are amongst those acts just confirmed for Hungary’s premier music event, with performances also due from Crystal Fighters, The Horrors and Mando Diao.
