Festival line-up update: Eden Sessions, Live From Jodrell Bank and more

Eden Sessions

Oh looky at this for a prize FLUU, Cornwall’s Eden Sessions has only gone and finalised its line-up by adding ever-present (in that they’re on practically every festival bill this year) disco icons Chic feat Nile Rodgers to it’s The xx-starring day, aka 2 Jul. What’ll that be like?!

Nile Rodgers says this: “We’re looking forward to setting the Eden Project alight with the sound of disco in July and are proud to be special guests to the incredible xx. Get ready…”

In reply, The xx shyly whisper: “Chic and Nile Rodgers have been enormously influential on modern-day music, including our own. It’s a surreal honour having them play with us at the Eden Sessions”.

Ah, what beautiful repartee. Also making a commotion by adding new artistes to its 2013 listings is the Cheshire-stationed Live From Jodrell Bank, as has signed on Manchester’s Halle Symphony Orchestra to play lots of spacey classical suites (Holst’s ‘The Planets’, the theme from ‘Close Encounters’ etc) at its last ‘transmission’. New Order, Sigur Ros and The Australian Pink Floyd will headline on earlier live nights ‘neath the stars.

And with that, it’s time to gaze at a stellar scenery of FLUUs via Cream Ibiza (which is more of a superclub summer season bill than a festival, but ah well), Iceland Airwaves, Rhythmtree, Roskilde and South West Four:
