Festival line-up update: Ibiza Rocks, Lovebox, Glastonbury (Abbey Extravaganza) and more

Ibiza Rocks

So Ibiza Rocks has topped off its mainly pop-based artist listings, cramming Biffy Clyro, Beady Eye, Chic feat Nile Rodgers and Professor Green alongside the likes of Jake Bugg, Rizzle Kicks, The Vaccines, Tinie Tempah and Chase & Status. Pro Green says he is: “Very, very excited to be back at Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks” and “can’t wait to perform some of the new album! Let’s fackin ave it!”

Yeah, ave it. And by ‘it’, I naturally mean another update to the Lovebox line-up, as now comes with added Lil Kim, who’ll be making her first London-based live PA since 2001 at the Victoria Park pop do. She aligns with pre-existing Lovebox faves like Plan B, Goldfrapp and her arch rap rival, Azealia Banks. Ha ha ha.

Oh yeah, and Michael Eavis is bringing back that most loved of Glasto add-ons, the separately-ticketed (and also later in the year) Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza, and has kindly asked Bryan Ferry and his orchestra to headline it. Nice.
