Standon Calling

So, this year’s Standon Calling has added another lorry-load of artists into its act-bank; notably the new n cool likes of Lucy Rose, London Grammar and Chloe Howl. Be there, or be square (and miss appearances by Standon’s headliners Digitalism, Band Of Skulls and De La Soul).

If folk’s more your thing, you may perhaps appreciate news of the new names added to Cambridge Folk Festival’s ‘Emerging Talent’ stage, The Den. Marika Hackman, We Were Evergreen, Luke Sital-Singh and groovy ‘X-Factor’ chick Janet Devlin are all billed to play things, this alongside Main Stage fare by The Mavericks, The Waterboys, Bellowhead, KT Tunstall, Levellers and Amadou & Mariam. Folk-tacular.

And with that bad, bad wordplay, it’s time to skim-read over a list of extra updates to Devon’s Beautiful Days; rock n roll Olympiad Hard Rock Calling; Suffolk-based alt-treat Latitude; flashy London pop bauble Lovebox; Poland’s now-finalised OFF; and Sheffield’s free-entry Tramlines fest:
