• An influx of acts over at this year’s multi-sited Camden Crawl, aka the snappily-named #CC14, that includes Phil Hartnoll, Laurel Halo, D/R/U/G/S, PINS and Rainer.

• The news that Grandmaster Flash and Scratch Perverts will split an exclusive, one-off double bill at man-from-UNKLE James Lavelle’s edition of Meltdown festival, whilst Jeff Mills, Trentemøller, James Holden and Rosie Lowe also join the M-Down bill.

• The addition of Outkast, Manic Street Preachers, The 1975, Wild Beasts Miles Kane and Mount Kimbie to this year’s QOTSA/Calvin Harris, Prodigy and Deamau5-featuring Sziget.
