By | Published on Thursday 13 February 2014


Anyone for In The Woods 2014? I’m talking, of course, about London(ish)-based ‘magical anarchic utopia’-in-a-copse In The Woods, whose USP is that it doesn’t unveil its line-up until the last minute. This year’s festival takes place on 29-31 Aug, and a first release of 1000 tickets to it will be available, at the earliest, on 6 Apr. At this link.

With that, it’s time to take a look at actual line-ups of actual artists just added to all-day pop-punk bash Slam Dunk, the Brian Wilson-headlined ‘brand new’ Hop Farm Festival (this one), and all the other following outdoor music dos…
