Isle Of Wight Festival

END OF THE ROAD, Larmer Tree Gardens, Wiltshire, 31 Aug – 2 Sep: Headliners Grizzly Bear get End Of The Road’s 2012 announcements off to a promising start, flanked on the bill by the likes of Beach House, First Aid Kit, The Antlers, Tindersticks, Mountain Man, and Outfit. The Strange Boys and Robyn Hitchcock are also amongst the latest confirmed acts, with more to follow shortly.

ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL, Seaclose Park, Newport, Isle Of Wight, 22-24 Jun: As aforementioned, Pearl Jam complete the line-up of headliners for next year’s Isle Of Wight fest, joining Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers and Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band. Maybe they should call themselves Eddie Vedder And The Pearl Jams for one night so as to fit in. Also new on the bill are Professor Green, Feeder, Wretch 32, Loick Essien, amongst others.

WYCHWOOD, Cheltenham Racecourse, Gloucestershire, 8-10 Jun: Festival headliners and Manchester indie legends James are first on Wychwood’s family-friendly 2012 programme. The existing line-up also features Fisherman’s Friends, Dhol Foundation and The Roving Crows.
