Festival line-up update: Weezer Cruise, Creamfields, Lovebox and more

By | Published on Thursday 30 May 2013

The Weezer CruiseAs cheap ‘early bird’ Field Day tickets go on sale for 2014 (already!), and London’s Steve Aoki/Eddie Halliwell headlined SW4 finally (finally!) finalises its line-up via star attraction Sven Vath et al, so too are a plethora of other fests adding extra – if not final – appeal in the shape of new names.

Take the Croatia-based Terraneo, for instance, as has called on Wu Tang Clan to share prime billing with My Bloody Valentine and The Prodigy. Or Serbia’s ‘R:Evolution’-themed Exit, which now features EDM renaissance men David Guetta, Steve Angello and Mark Knight. And/or a brand new event at the QE Olympic Park in London, Open East Festival, an internationally-inclined celebration that so far stars Toots And The Maytals, Amadou & Mariam, Fatoumata Diawara, Don Letts, Wire and Stealing Sheep.

Or Yorkshire’s specialist music/beer/cider/fun fete Galtres, the MD of which, one James Houston, says this of persuading Johnny Borrell to play: “Johnny Borrell will be playing Razorlight smash hits like ‘America’, ‘Somewhere Else’ and ‘In The Morning’ as well as brand new material which is sounding superb. He’s played the biggest stages in the world, and it will be an honour to have him at Galtres”.

Or Weezer’s Weezer Cruise, which is going to bear the likes of Cat Power, Toro Y Moi, The Cribs, Bleached and Diiv over the sea to a Bahamian rock paradise, and back. Or Creamfields, or Truck, or the Secret Garden Party, or Hard Rock Calling, or Canterbury’s small-but-shapely Brainchild. The ‘festivals adding artists’ list really is endless…
