ATP Festival

ATP CURATED BY ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead, 13-15 May: It has just been announced that dreamy Sub Pop duo Beach House will be joining the already delectable array of acts set to play at this edition of ATP. Also fresh on the bill alongside Big Boi, Lee Scratch Perry and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti are High Life, Ear Pwr and Floating Points.

COACHELLA, Indio, California, USA, 15-17 Apr: Kings Of Leon, Arcade Fire and Kanye West will headline this year’s Coachella out in California. Also on the bill are The Black Keys, Lauryn Hill, Interpol, The National, The Chemical Brothers, Mumford & Sons, PJ Harvey and, somewhat bizarrely, Death From Above 1979, who have seemingly got over their distaste for each other.

END OF THE ROAD, Larmer Tree Gardens, North Dorset, 2-4 Sep: The latest additions to this year’s line-up are headliner Beirut, Cass McCombs, Gruff Rhys, James Yorkston and Joan As Police Woman. Also just confirmed to play are Timber Timbre, Tune Yards, Wooden Shjips and the excellent Perfume Genius. They join Wild Beasts, The Walkmen and The Fall amongst others for the intimate folk fest.

ISLE OF WIGHT, Seaclose Park, Newport, 10-12 Jun: Having dominated this year’s BRIT nominations, Tinie Tempah has been confirmed to top the bill on the Saturday evening of this three day weekender. He throws his cap into the ring with already announced headliners Foo Fighters, Kasabian and Kings Of Leon.

GARDEN FESTIVAL, Petrčane, Zadar, Croatia, 6-13 Jul: Amongst the first acts announced for this year’s Garden Festival, which takes over a 900 year old fishing village in Croatia for a full week in July, are Larry Heard, Art Department, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Tiger And Woods with Norman Jay, Tensnake, Crazy P, Mark E, Future Disco and PBR Streetgang.

GUILFEST, Stoke Park, Guilford, 15-17 Jul: James Blunt, that most personable and sweet-voiced of fellows, has been revealed as the closing attraction at this year’s Guilfest. No other acts are confirmed as yet, but Blunty’s presence on the bill alone is sure to pull in the crowds. Though presumably they’re hoping to not just have James Blunt fans on site.

SONISPHERE, Knebworth Park, 8-10 Aug: Motorhead are to join Friday co-headliners, the ‘big four’ of thrash – Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – at the UK instalment of this year’s roving rock and metal fest. Also just added to the bill are Mastodon, In Flames and Parkway Drive. Family-friendly faves Biffy Clyro and Slipknot will also headline Saturday and Sunday respectively.
