Festival line-up update: Brownstock, Judgestock and more

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013


Starting today’s FLUU at attractively-named Essexian event Brownstock, Rudimental have cancelled what was to be their headline set as they have bigger, better fish to fry in America. Or, as their management phrased it, “a major US touring commitment”.

Whilst Rudimental’s last minute change of heart has left Brownstock HQ “shocked and disappointed”, it’s all going to be okay, because Professor ‘Pro’ Green has stepped in as a replacement. He aligns quite nicely with the likes of The Fratellis, DJ Yoda, The Pigeon Detectives, Benga & Youngman, Hadouken! and DJ Mark Ronson at the festival, which takes place at the end of the month.

All’s well that ends with a Pro Green performance, as I occasionally say. And with that, we head back to the start. ‘The start’, that is, of today’s festival line-up update listings, which today include brief details of Midlands-based charity fundraiser Judgestock and free-entry Bank Holiday revel Spa Fields:

BROWNSTOCK, Morris Farm, Chelmsford, Essex, 30 Aug – 1 Sep: Professor Green.

JUDGESTOCK, Sandwell Valley Country Park, 24-26 Aug: Blue, Lemar, The Twang, Alabama 3, The Quireboyts, Mitchel Emms.
