Festival line-up update: Pitchfork Music Festival, Secret Garden Party, Roskilde and more

Berlin Festival

So, as Lou Reed takes his name off the Coachella listings citing “unavoidable complications”, what of contrasting scenarios at festivals who are adding, rather than losing, artists? Well, as we were talking about Lou Reed, it seems we appropriate to start in Berlin, with the Berlin Festival, which now has a third headliner (the others being Blur and Pet Shop Boys) in Björk, who’ll notably be making her first and last German live appearance of the year. DJ Shadow, AlunaGeorge, Tomahawk and Villagers are also new to the MBV and MIA-featuring event.

Secret Garden Party is at the artist additions game, too, and has signed off a new conscript of acts, not least rarely-seen Regina Spektor, Youth Lagoon, Lissie, Shout Out Louds and Willy Mason. They and a lengthy list of DJs – Zane Lowe, John Kennedy and SGP regular and Temple Of Boom sultan Eddy Temple-Morris to name several – align with existing Garden Party guests Soulwax, Django Django, and Bastille.

A pair of pretty large Euro fests, Serbia’s Exit and Denmark’s Roskilde, have increased their billings by but one new artist. Fatboy Slim joins Atoms For Peace, Snoop Lion, Bloc Party and DJ Fresh at Exit, and The National are new to Roskilde’s live programme, whose star attractions are QOTSA, Kendrick Lamar, Sigur Ros and pre-festival player Rihanna.

So, that’s all new in FLUUs. All, that is, apart from an obligatory look at extra add-ons to Deer Shed, Indietracks, Spot, Stop Making Sense, Waveform and the Tate Modern’s contemporary music/arts fest Hyperlink:
