Festival line-up update: Reading & Leeds, The xx’s Night + Day, Vans Warped Tour and more

Hevy Festival

The team at Hevy have released a lengthy explanation (a new site, hidden licensing laws, etc) as to why they’re cancelling the festival’s 2-4 Aug with-camping bash, and instead staging a “new breed” of Hevy-branded live events that same weekend.

The first is at the capital’s Brixton Academy on 4 Aug, and will feature Killswitch Engage, Hatebreed and Comeback Kid, with Horse The Band headlining a separate show at The Borderline on 3 Aug. Tickets to the cancelled festival are refundable, whilst passes to the new dates will be available on 12 Jun. Since that’s all quite complicated, find info on it at this link.

So, what else? Oh yeah, Reading and Leeds have both added acts like Villagers, Wavves, Don Broco, The Pretty Reckless, Savages, DIIV, Mount Kimbie, Chance The Rapper, Frankie And The Heartstrings, Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs to their parallel line-ups.

On to The xx’s London-based Night + Day which, unlike Hevy, lived to tell its site-change tale, and so will go ahead as billed (second time round) at Hertfordshire’s Hatfield House. New artists aligning with Kindness, Solange, Mount Kimbie, Poli√ßa and, naturally, the one-dayer’s convivial hosts, a la N+D’s final listings say-so, are Jon Hopkins, London Grammar, Floating Points and Koreless.
