2000TREES, Upcote Farm, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, 14-16 Jul: Scots indie sorts Frightened Rabbit are newly-confirmed to co-headline the ethical eco-fest with Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip. Also playing the Main Stage will be Islet, Ellen & The Escapades and Straight Lines, whilst the Cave Stage will showcase a rather raucous rundown of acts including Devil Sold His Soul, Talons, Exit Ten and The James Cleaver Quintet. Meanwhile, Dizraeli & The Small Gods, Stringerbessant, Sound Of Rum and Stagecoach will soothe battered eardrums, playing away quietly on the Leaf Stage.

ØYA, Middelalderparken, Oslo, Norway, 9-13 Aug: Besuited CMU favourite Janelle Monáe is to wow crowds at this year’s Øya, whilst neighbouring alt siren Lykke Li will venture from her native Sweden to play her only Norwegian date this year. Local acts Hakan Hellstrom and Tog weigh in with the likes of Warpaint, Pulp, Fleet Foxes et al.

POHODA, Airport Trencin, Slovakia, 7-9 Jul: Ambient chillmaster Moby has just been added to the bill of this Slovakian two dayer, which was already set to play host to acts including Portishead, Junip, Beirut, We Have Band, and many more.

SONISPHERE, Knebworth Park, 8-10 Aug: Limp Bizkit have announced that they’ll make their only English festival appearance of 2011 at this year’s Sonisphere (which does suggest they’ll be playing something elsewhere in the UK, too), while Sisters Of Mercy will play their first UK festival for 20 years. Also newly added to the bill are Gallows, Kids In Glass Houses, One Minute Silence, Gojira, Volbeat and InMe.

SOUTH WEST FOUR, Clapham Common, London 27-28 Aug: Aussie D&B wizards Pendulum are scheduled to appear at the capital’s foremost celebration of electro and dance music, closing the festival with a Saturday bill-topping slot. More headline acts are to be revealed throughout the coming week, so in the unlikely event that you’re not a Pendulum fan, stay tuned.

Y-NOT, Matlock, Derbyshire, 5-8 Aug: First-announced headliners Maximo Park will be bringing their own brand of wonky Tyne and Wear rock to the sixth annual edition of Y-Not, which is the sister event of 2000Trees. Crowds can also expect performances from The Milk, Tellison, Karima Francis and Stagecoach, as well as such worldly activities as yoga, African dancing and dodgems.
