1234 FESTIVAL, Shoreditch Park, London, 09 Jul: This lastingly-trendy London fest welcomes The Raveonettes, Black Strobe, Sound Of Rum and Joe & Will Ask to its diverse bill, which prior to these latest bookings already featured Black Lips, Peepholes and Becoming Real.

, Larmer Tree Gardens, Dorset, 13-17 Jul: Larmer Tree organisers have added a host of bizarre-sounding acts to their festival roster, with Batacuda Sound Machine, Watcha Clan, GaBLé, Sheelanagig and Tinderbox the oddest names amongst the recent announcements. They are taken into the fold alongside an existing line-up that’s topped by Seasick Steve, Imelda May and Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.

LATITUDE, Henham Park Estate, Suffolk, 14-17 Jul: Glasvegas, Seasick Steve, Iron & Wine and hotly-tipped folk youngsters Dog Is Dead are fresh on the Latitude billing, joining an existing line-up of acts including Suede, The National, The Cribs, Echo & The Bunnymen at the sumptuous countryside bash.

LOVEBOX, Victoria Park, London, 15-17 Jul: First ladies of alt-pop Beth Ditto, Jessie J and Santigold are accompanied by Architecture In Helsinki, Hudson Mohawke and Flying Lotus as the latest group of acts announced to perform at this year’s Lovebox weekender. They will head to the London-based bash alongside previous announcees like Snoop Dogg, Lykke Li, Kelis, Scissor Sisters and Robyn.

V FESTIVAL, Hylands Park, Essex/Weston Park, Staffordshire, 20-21 Aug: Roughing things up at the festival season’s most pristine of pop events will be Lostprophets, Good Charlotte and Kids In Glass Houses. Noisettes, The Wanted and Dionne Bromfield complete this most recent raft of line-up introductions, joining mismatched co-headliners Arctic Monkeys and Eminem plus Rihanna, Plan B, Glasvegas and Ellie Goulding on a stellar bill.
