HULTSFRED FESTIVAL, Sweden, 14-16 Jun: Hulstfred’s latest supplements, who include Chase & Status, Spector and Willie Moon, unite with the likes of The Cure, Mumford & Sons, Noel Gallagher, Kasabian and Noah & The Whale in – for the most part of the festival’s roster – bringing a distinctly British sense to proceedings at this Swedish three-dayer.
