Deer Shed Festival

DEER SHED, Baldersby Park, Topcliffe, North Yorkshire, 22-24 Jul: I Am Kloot are so far the only act confirmed for the three day family-friendly event, which will feature an astral theme as inspired by ‘The Sky At Night’, the Mercury-nominated album that brought much-deserved success to the venerable Mancunian trio.

OSFEST, Oswestry Showground, Shropshire, 27-29 May: The newly-extended pop/dance/rap festival will this year feature Example as Saturday night headliner, with other confirmed acts including Tinchy Strider, Labrinth, Aggro Santos and From The Jam. The Feeling and Goldie Lookin Chain will also make long-awaited comebacks, if indeed they ever went away (and assuming someone was waiting). Boomtown Rats are also to play, whether plus or sans Geldof is hard to say. What is for sure is that they will be expected to play ‘I Don’t Like Mondays’ at least twice.

ØYA, Middelalderparken, Oslo, Norway, 9-13 Aug: First announced acts include CMU favourites Warpaint, as well as Fleet Foxes who return to the self-professed “green n clean” Norwegian festival after a standout sundown performance in 2009. Other highlights of this year’s line up include Matthew Dear, Explosions In The Sky, Twin Shadow, Bring Me The Horizon and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.

SOUNDWAVE, Petrcane, Croatia, 22-24 Jul: The brilliant Brightonian Bonobo is to appear alongside a nine-piece band at this under-the-radar Croatian fest. Also just announced is sub-bass empress Andreya Triana, who accompanies Roots Manuva, Zero 7 and Little Dragon amongst others on an eclectic bill.
