EXIT Festival

Lots of FLUUs to mention, so I’ll just start at random (well, alphabetically) with Britain’s only festival to feature a ski lift, the Winchester-based Boomtown Fair. As per the first-published phase of its artist additions, it’ll this year star the likes of The Parov Stelar Band, Ozomatli, Mad Caddies, Richie Spice, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. A nice array, I’m sure.

Moving to new roll-call revelations at other festivals; you can read on to find info on new consignments to Croatia’s Electric Elephant and Echo fests, Serbian sortie EXIT, Dorset folk hoopla Larmer Tree, The London International Ska Festival, Dutch sleep-over Motel Mozaique, extreme ‘action sports and music’ festival NASS, Norfolk pop party Sundown and the still-secretly-sited Sunrise Celebration.
