Festival line-up update: Dimensions, Incubate, Lowlands and more

Dimensions Festival

Ah, Bestival’s application to increase its Isle Of Wight-based site’s max capacity from 50,000 to a bizarrely exact 79,999 has been approved by the authorities-that-be, and I wish it well with that.

Speaking of festival expansions, Netherlandic alt-fest Incubate has adding Gang Of Four to its wide-ranging listings (I Am Kloot, CocoRosie, Immortal Willis Earl Beal, Anna Von Hausswolff), a happy acquisition that Incubate AD Vincent Koreman vocalises thus: “We’re extremely proud that Gang Of Four will perform at Incubate this year! Because of their major influence on a lot of the bands in the line-up, because of their social-political lyrics and because they’re still a kick-ass live band. In combination with the acid house line-up that we have that night in the 013 venue with 808 State and A Guy Called Gerald, they fit perfectly into our programme”.

Moving over to the programme at large at Croatia’s Dimensions, and Bonobo is revealed as headliner at the festival’s 4 Sep launch party (not technically part of the main event, since it’s separately ticketed), as will also feature pre-existing Dimensions highlights Mount Kimbie, Portico Quartet and Andrew Ashong.

Those highlights noted, I’ll finish with lists of additions to the following…
