ATP NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, Butlin’s Resort, Minehead, Somerset, 9-11 Dec: Hand-picked by co-curators Les Savy Fav, Battles and Caribou, a choice selection of acts including Wild Flag, Surfer Blood, Toro Y Moi, Four Tet and Oxes have been added to the nightmarishly good ATP winter-fest line-up. Gary Numan, Washed Out, Holy Fuck and Flying Lotus are amongst those previously announced to appear at this frosty winter weekender.

LATITUDE, Henham Park Estate, Suffolk, 14-17 Jul: Those interested in all things cultural will be pleased to hear of the list of oh-so artsy additions to this year’s Latitude fest, which will see the likes Imogen Heap and Micachu performing soundtracks to silent films as part of the Bird’s Eye View showcase. Singer Camille O’Sullivan and the London Contemporary Orchestra will also feature in proceedings, as will an ‘Attack The Block’-themed party courtesy of Noise Of Art. The existing musical bill, as I’m sure you’re already aware, includes The National, I Am Kloot, Lykke Li, Hurts and Deerhunter.

WIRELESS, Hyde Park, London, 1-3 Jul: The bulging Wireless bill is forced to accommodate a further trio of acts with the announcement that Ke$ha, Cut Copy and folk-pop duo Blind Pilot will join established headliners Pulp, The Black Eyed Peas and The Chemical Brothers, plus a score of other acts including Tinie Tempah, Metronomy, Grace Jones, Foals and The Horrors.
