End Of The Road

So, while not meaning to sideline the European festivals in today’s FLUU, Jay-Z’s Budweiser-backed Made In America venture is kind of a big deal, so we’ll start with that. Starring Jay’s first lady Beyonce, her real-life sister Solange and, bizarrely, Nine Inch Nails, its wildly varying listings also name QOTSA, Deaadmau5, Phoenix, Kendrick Lamar, AlunaGeorge, Calvin Harris and 2Chainz.

Paul Chibe, marketing VP at Budweiser, says this to Billboard: “The point of having that diversity in our music line-up is that we’re trying to expose the people to different types of music. The eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music and culture”.

That it does. And speaking of eclecticism, I shall pass over to new artist additions c/o shabby-chic Wiltshire three-dayer End Of The Road, London-based EDM rave South West Four, insistent indie fest Standon Calling, and Hungary’s Sziget:
