Festival line-up update: Wireless, Beach Break Live, Blissfields and more

By | Published on Wednesday 1 May 2013


What’s this, a scarcity of line-up updates as we near the festival season? Well, no. It’s actually quite the contrary, because they’re all still at it (adding artists, I mean). The (unofficial) prize for today’s most enthusiastic FLUU intake is awarded to Newquay’s Beach Break live, as has added no less than 132 names to its Jake Bugg, AlunaGeorge and Devlin-crested cache.

Blissfields, too, is another fest showing no sign of being satiated act-wise, and has named London Grammar, Chloe Howl, Josef Salvat and Bondax (and more) as the newest names to align with its existing listings, as feature headliners Man Like Me, Mystery Jets and Bastille; and the likes of The DOT, Jacob Banks, Friends, Theme Park and The Staves. Smashing.

And hey, what’s a festival sans Barely anything, that’s what. Realising this, Yahoo’s London-sited Wireless has been ‘in talks’ with the part-time Black Eyed Pea, persuading him to play as a ‘special guest’ on Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s co-signed ‘Legends Of The Summer’ special on 14 Jul. Unfortunately, Will has stayed silent as to his excitement at being asked to join the Wireless bill, so instead here are lots of nice, itemised listings c/o the following FLUU-making events:
