Festival Line-Up Update: Pinkpop, Forbidden Fruit, Chester Rocks and more

By | Published on Thursday 13 March 2014


Ooooooooooh, so. Those Rolling Stones have done the FLUU double, and popped up on not one but (and you can tell where I’m going with this) TWO line-up updates of late: those at Belgian one-dayer TW Classic AND rose-tinted Dutch skirmish Pinkpop. Perhaps Keith will do a live recital of his new true-life kids’ book as an encore. Perhaps not.

Following on from that exclusive, we have further such FLUUs from the Cambridge Folk Festival, rockin Chester fest Chester Rocks, Scottish paradise Eden Festival, juicy Irish indie event Forbidden Fruit, Hampton Court Palace’s annual courtyard bash, and hot Scots ticket Howlin Fling…
