Relentless Boardmasters

KANTAZIP REPUBLIC, Crimea, Ukraine, 30 Jul – 27 Aug: The first slew of announcements for Crimea’s premier music event includes such beat-making types as Groove Armada, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Aeroplane, Danny Howells, Richie Hawtin and James Zabiela. A DJ set from Pendulum is also on the cards, which should all make for some momentous nineteenth birthday celebrations for this venerable electro soiree.

RELENTLESS BOARDMASTERS, Watergate Bay, Cornwall, 10-14 Aug: Newton Faulkner looks set to get his dreads all sand-logged at this year’s Boardmasters bash, finding himself freshly booked as a special musical guest at an intimate Beach Sessions gig, which will be held on 11 Aug as part of the main festival. He joins the likes of Fatboy Slim, Eliza Doolittle and Bombay Bicycle Club on the overall line-up.

LOVEBOX, Victoria Park, London, 15-17 Jul: With Lovebox literally due to kick off, like, tomorrow, organisers have boosted their bill with some last-minute additions including Is Tropical, Losers, The Correspondents and Engine-Earz. They join Snoop Dogg, Lykke Li, Scissor Sisters and 2manydjs on the bill.

THE WICKERMAN FESTIVAL, East Kirkcarswell Farm, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland, 22-23 Jul: Pigeon Detectives lead a score of new introductions to this year’s Wickerman roster, which also features Feeder, The Coral, Echo & The Bunnymen, Noisettes, The Hoosiers, Craig Charles Funk and From The Jam.
