Festival line-up update: Forbidden Fruit, The xx’s Night + Day, Exit and more

Forbidden Fruit

Festivals, festivals, festivals. Always adding artists, when will it end? Never, that’s when. Look at Ireland’s Bulmers-backed Forbidden Fruit, for instance, as has just revealed its co-headlining acts (Kasabian, Primal Scream) and the varied likes of James Blake, Crystal Castles, Austra, Mykki Blanco, and the Nile Rodgers-featuring Chic.

Speaking of chic – as in the adjective rather than the 1970s disco band – The xx have shared the names of the first players at the London edition of their modish Night + Day mini fests. And those names are Mount Kimbie, Poliça and Kindness.

Going as far away from Chic/chic as can be gone, Serbia’s diversely-billed Exit fest has taken on a new headliner in reggae creature Snoop Lion né Dogg, who aligns with listing kingpins Atoms For Peace, Seth Troxler, DJ Fresh, and Matador. What a treat.

And now, have several extra FLUU-based treats via this lot:
