Festival line-up update – 4 Mar 2013

Fuji Rock Festival

Ushering in CMU’s five-times weekly FLUUs this time is Japan’s ultra-cool Fuji Rock fest, as has just nonchalantly named its headliners as Nine Inch Nails, Björk and The xx. No big deal. Underneath that lot, its initial listings feature Death Grips, DJ Shadow, Flying Lotus, Tame Impala and Yo La Tengo, so that’s nice.

And since we’re talking Flying Lotus, I may as well say that he’s also been added to Belgian festival Dour’s chocolate box of live artistes, as have Trentemøller, Booka Shade and Nathan Fake. Dour’s bill at large also stars Simian Mobile Disco, Amon Tobin and The Smashing Pumpkins, by the way.

Oh, and one other thing. Plan B is to play this year’s edition of Rock Ness. He takes a headlining vantage point on the Scots fest’s overall roster (in line with Basement Jaxx and Example), and quite rightly too.

That all revealed, I have just one final thing to say, and that is this: stay fixed to the following list to find info on artist additions to venerable (and Keane, Seth Lakeman and Squeeze co-headlined) Cotswolds idyll Cornbury, York-based enigma Galtres, Devonshire sea-sports rave GoldCoast OceanFest, hardcore-revel-in-a-zoo Hevy, brand new Bulgarian debutante Horizon, and amicable family fete WeyFest.
