1234 SHOREDITCH, Shoreditch Park, London, 1 Sep: 1234 marks its fifth iteration with the addition of Falty DL, Lapalux, Patten, Regal Safari and Young Montana, all of whom will grace the East London festival’s dance stage. Fixtures of the line-up at large include Crocodiles, Bo Ningen, Frankie Rose, SCUM, Bleeding Heart Narrative and Dirty Beaches.

GUILFEST, Guildford, Surrey, 13-15 Jul: Johnny Marr is now set to accompany his one-time ‘Bete Noir’ collaborator, Guilfest headliner Bryan Ferry, during his Sunday evening slot. The Guildford-based event’s existing listings also include Olly Murs, Jools Holland, Tulisa, Jimmy Cliff, Gary Numan, Candi Staton, Cher Lloyd and Tim Minchin.

LATITUDE, Henham Park Estate, Suffolk, 12-15 Jul: Summer Camp and Phantasy-signed DJ Daniel Avery lead a list of acts destined to play culture collective Noise Of Art’s psychedelic showcase at this weekend’s Latitude, replacing the now-defunct Phenomenal Handclap Band. This lot thus align on the festival’s main bill with the previously announced likes of Bon Iver, Elbow and Paul Weller alongside Rufus Wainwright, Metronomy, Laura Marling, Wild Beasts, Alabama Shakes and Bat For Lashes.

MELTDOWN, Southbank Centre, London, 1-12 Aug: Final additions Hercules & Love Affair, John Grant, Sissy Nobby and, weirdly, ‘Sex And The City’ actress Kim Catrall (who’ll in fact be talking about her past role as Shakespeare’s ‘Cleopatra’) serve to complete the line-up of Antony Hegarty’s hand-chosen Meltdown festival, as will also host Lou Reed, Diamanda Galás, Laurie Anderson, Elizabeth Fraser, CocoRosie, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Joey Arias and Marc Almond.

UNDERAGE FESTIVAL, Shoreditch Park, London, 31 Aug: Performances from Devlin, Skepta and ‘X Factor’ debutante Misha B, plus a DJ set by indie faves Foals, are new to proceedings at London’s teens-only Underage fest, as also features Devlin, Spector, Rustie, Outfit, Disclosure and TEED.
