Festival line-up update: Pitchfork Festival Paris, Camp Bestival, Brownstock and more

Pitchfork Festival Paris

Italian dance fest Vertigo has cancelled what was to be its first ever event, this because – says this statement – of unanticipated paperwork, and a “personal lack of knowledge of the Italian licensing systems” on its organisers part.

One of those organisers, Rick Frost, says: “Our vision for Vertigo Festival was being placed in jeopardy and we were not willing to compromise our ticket holders’ experience. We would like to apologise to our ticket holders for the change in plans, we can promise however that we will be back in 2014 with the most spectacular event with more artists and the best entertainment you can imagine”.

This year’s Rewind Scotland, whilst still alive and kicking, has had a change in its headlining acts, as The Human League replace a departing OMD after the latter’s Malcolm Holmes was hospitalised last Friday with heat exhaustion, causing the band to withdraw.
