DEVON ROX, Powderham Castle, Devon, 6-7 Aug: Devon’s premier rock fest celebrates its first year in existence by adding My Passion, Francesqa, Idiom, Gundogs, Cry Havoc and Fallen Fate to its inaugural bill. The existing line-up boasts Funeral For A Friend, Quireboys, Saint Jude and many more.

GUILFEST, Stoke Park, Guilford, 15-17 Jul: Roger Daltrey, who will be performing rock opera ‘Tommy’ in its entirety, leads the latest confirmed acts for this family-friendly fest, with Adam Ant and, oddly enough, Gallows also set to delight (or terrify) adults and children alike at this eclectic three-dayer. They join a truly remarkable previous line-up that includes James Blunt, Razorlight, N-Dubz, Peter Andre and John Lydon’s Public Image Ltd. Dear god.

HARVEST FESTIVALS, Pannington Hall Lane, Ipswich/Kingham, Oxfordshire, 9-12 Sep: Jimmy Doherty and Blur’s own cheese-wizard Alex James will be each hosting their own dual celebrations of good food and good music this September, with recent additions to both bills being headliners Fat Freddy’s Drop and The Futureheads. Festival goers on both farms can also expect a label showcase by Mumford & Sons-founded Communion Records, plus appearances from such already-announced artists as KT Tunstall, Jo Whiley, Eliza Doolittle, Huw Stephens and Benjamin Francis Leftwich.,
