Festival line-up update: OohLaLA!, Melt!, Incubate and more

By | Published on Monday 24 June 2013


So, there’s a cosmopolitan new festival on the block, and it’s really, really French. Based in London, the first of many OohLaLA!s is so far playing ambassador to Dominique A, Lescop, ≠FAUVE and Christine And The Queens, with extra (French) names still TBA.

Having nothing to do with France is this year’s way-past-alternative Incubate; new additions at which – Serafina Steer, Anna Von Hausswolff and The Wedding Present – align with A Guy Called Gerald, Tim Hecker, A Place To Bury Strangers, East India Youth and Shonen Knife.

Over at Warrington’s free-to-all Music Festival, Chris Persogli, who’s in charge of one of the event’s pivotal stages Pyramid Parr Hall, says this of signing Happy Mondays on as headliners: “It’s fantastic that we’ve got the Happy Mondays on board for this year’s Warrington Music Festival and testament to how far the event has come. The festival has really grown over the past seven years, acting as a platform for up and coming bands locally and now regionally. Who better to inspire the acts than one of the biggest and most successful bands from the North West?”.

With that it’s on to extra updates via Poland’s Heineken Open’er, Germany’s Melt!, and Spain’s Monegros fiesta:
