Hop Farm Music Festival

FRIENDS OF MINE, Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire, 21-22 May: Organisers have pulled of a coup in securing Leed’s finest The Cribs for Friends Of Mine’s first edition. They are the latest rabble-rousers in the mix alongside the likes of The Fall, Black Lips, The Longcut and The Buzzcocks.

HOP FARM MUSIC FESTIVAL, Hop Farm Country Park, Kent, 1-2 Jul: Making up an eclectic mix on Hop Farm’s latest line-up update are Chrissie Hynde, Damien Dempsey, The Duke Spirit, Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Frankie & The Heartstrings and hotly-tipped Australian indie sorts Cloud Control. The existing two-day bill, topped off by co-headliners Morrissey and The Eagles, also stars Lou Reed, Iggy & The Stooges, Bryan Ferry and a lone Brandon Flowers.

LATITUDE, Henham Park Estate, Suffolk, 14-17 Jul: Bombay Bicycle Club and Eels are the most recent pair of acts added to the sterling Latitude line-up. In older news, headlining honours will be shared by The National, Paolo Nutini and Suede, with The Vaccines, I Am Kloot, Deerhunter and Bright Eyes also already set to perform.

, Clapham Common, London, 11 Jun: Carving its niche in the overstocked festival programme by “celebrating the very best in Southern Hemisphere music under a Northern sky”, headliners INXS are the first sub-equatorial act on the bill for the inaugural edition of Southern Sounds.

URBAN ART FORMS, Arena Nova Playgrounds, Wiener Neustadt, 16-18 Jun: Heading to the fusion of dance music and visual arts that is this wunderbar weekender will be bill-topping DJ Fat Boy Slim, who is joined by an array of dance acts like Deadmau5, Simian Mobile Disco, Crystal Castles and Does It Offend You, Yeah?

WYCHWOOD, Cheltenham Racecourse, Gloucestershire, 3-5 Jun: Newly-announced acts including Scottish songwriter Eddie Reader and retiring Britpopsters The Bluetones will be joining in with the congenial atmosphere at this family-friendly bash. Fans can also expect a solo appearance by Eliza Carth of The Gift Band, as well as performances from such already confirmed acts as Cornershop, The Waterboys and Idlewild’s Roddy Woomble.
