Camp Bestival

BLOODSTOCK, Catton Hall, Derby, 9-12 Aug: Recent add-ons Sepultura and US metallers Iced Earth serve to further swell this year’s sizeable Bloodstock roster, which thus far consists of acts including Behemoth, Alice Cooper, Hatebreed, Mayhem, The Black Dahlia Murder, Warain and Anvil.

CAMP BESTIVAL, Lulworth Castle, Dorset, 26-29 Jul: Rolf Harris, Lianne Le Havas, Ren Harvieu and King Creosote & John Hopkins make for a varied array of acts just added to the Camp Bestival line-up, joining Hot Chip, Kool & The Gang and Chic feat Nile Rodgers on the familial festival’s ever-expanding musical billing. Freshly crowned as Bestival’s comedy headliner, Jimmy Carr will also appear at the ‘Silly Olympic’-themed fest.

DOUNE THE RABBIT HOLE, Duncarron Fort, Scotland, 24-26 Aug: Organisers of this medieval-themed happening confirm The Phantom Band, Aiden Moffat & Bill Wells, Sparrow And The Workshop and Three Blind Wolves amongst a barrage of initial bookings, with many more yet to be unveiled.

FUTURE MUSIC FESTIVAL, various venues, Australia, 3-12 Mar: A horde of British types have been quick to crowd the Future Music roster, with Tinie Tempah, New Order, Fatboy Slim, The Wombats, Jessie J and Chase & Status all featuring amongst recent line-up additions. The festival itself is stationed in one-day stints across venues in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, with the international likes of Frank Ocean, Skrillex, Gym Class Heroes and Die Antwoord also primed to perform at each of the five dates.

RADIO 1′S HACKNEY WEEKEND, Hackney Marshes, East London, 23-24 Jun: Acts including Jack White, Lana Del Rey, The Maccabees, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J and Bombay Bicycle Club are confirmed as company for Leona Lewis and Plan B on the bill of this rather unnecessary Radio 1-hosted Olympics bash, free tickets for which are available through a lottery.
