Festival line-up update: Bestival, Green Man, Iceland Airwaves and more

Green Man Festival

Diving straight into today’s FLUU pool, let’s all thrash excitedly about in the tide of new-added artists soaking the Wales-based Green Man to its skin. Yes, I said that. In the wake of the wave, CMU notes that headliners Kings Of Convenience plus Julia Holter, Parquet Courts, Melody’s Echo Chamber, Peggy Sue and Icelandic contralto Ólöf Arnalds, to name several, have aligned with the likes of Band Of Horses, Ben Howard, Midlake and Local Natives upon the GM listings.

Iceland Airwaves, too, has spilled another phase of acts onto its live programme; choosing AlunaGeorge, Zola Jesus, On An On, Stealing Sheep and Mariam The Believer as ideal partners to pre-existing players like Kraftwerk, Björk and Gold Panda.

And finally it’s over to Bestival. Metaphorically, that is. The HMS-themed festival’s captain of captains, Rob Da Bank, has complemented his Snoop Dogg and Elton John-starring line-up via the addition of ‘Need U (100%)’ hitmaker Duke Dumont. And of that, Rob says: “I’ve been playing out the Duke’s remixes and productions for a few years now and never really expected him to have a huge number one smash… it couldn’t happen to a more deserving chap and he’s gonna slay our new concept stage where he’s playing at Bestival… more news on that very soon!”
