Body & Soul Festival

I have to say, Irish independent festival Body & Soul – the same Irish independent that stars headliner Nick Cave and Kurt Vile, PiL, Solange, Charles Bradley and Willy Mason – is looking rather great this year, isn’t it?

Yes, yes it is. And so are inextricably-linked pop raves Mallorca and Ibiza Rocks, who’ve taken in an extra artistic bilge featuring Tinie Tempah, Chase & Status, Bastille and 24 hour party people Franz Ferdinand. FF’s Alex Kapranos says this: “This is the first time we’ve been to Ibiza Rocks, so are looking forward to it. Paul’s been and told us all about it, so we’re expecting a great crowd there and in Mallorca”.

Chase & Status paraphrase that same sentiment, adding: “We’re excited to bring our live show to Ibiza Rocks again this summer – the crowds at Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks are always amazing!”

Amazing! And now, be similarly amazed by this list of astonishing FLUUs:
