Festival line-up update: iTunes Festival, Reading & Leeds, LodeStar and more

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013


In a sad start to today’s festival headlines, environmentally-minded ‘psy-dance’ rave Waveform has been cancelled, apparently because its directors were “unable to comply” with increasingly restrictive licensing laws “and still maintain any sensible budget”.

In direct contrast, the once one-day Ringmaster has grown into a weekend event lasting 27-28 Sep. It will take place Hopton Court featuring an all-new camping area and an unchanged line-up boasting Maximo Park, Mystery Jets, Ghostpoet, Deaf Havana, Theme Park and Johnny Borrell.

And with that, it’s ready to “get weird at iTunes Festival” (say iTunes’ newly-added act HAIM), and stay equally as weird at this year’s Beautiful Days, Reading Leeds and V Fests, whilst imagining weirdness still-to-happen at 2014’s Bloodstock and Hammerfest.
