Standon Calling

SPLIT FESTIVAL, Ashbrooke Sports Club, Sunderland, 17-18 Sep: Beth Orton, Michelle Stodart of The Magic Numbers, Young Legionnaire’s Paul Mullen, Kurran & The Wolfnotes and The Lake Poets lead a spate of acts freshly sprinkled atop the Split Festival bill. Hosted by Futureheads man Ross Millard, this Sunderland-situated bash will also host Mystery Jets, The Drums, The Charlatans, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Ganglians, Little Comets and Beth Jeans Houghton.

STANDON CALLING, Standon, Hertfordshire, 11-14 Aug: Spiritualized have been forced to pull their headline Standon Calling slot (their first cancellation in a 21 year-long career, we might add) due to medical circumstances surrounding frontman Jason Pierce. With a replacement bill-topper due to be announced in the coming weeks there are still plenty of performers on offer at this eclectic four-dayer, not least Battles, Lamb, Hercules & Love Affair, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Born Ruffians, Trophy Wife and Dan Le Sac.
