T In The Park

As Jersey Live gains a camping license, and, adversely, Toots & The Maytals cancel their many festival appearances citing Toots’ ill health, what else is hitting the festival headlines today?

Well, to start with a meaningless bee-based metaphor, a hive of activity is all abuzz at Europe’s leading hip hop beach festival, Fresh Island; where one can take in the likes of Snoop Lion nee Dogg, A$AP Rocky, Iggy Azalea and new headliners KRS-One.

Not only that, Scotland’s T In The Park is also big in the artist additions game today, with Slam Tent DJs Rudimental, East Everything, Claude Von Stroke and Ben Martin all signing on to join T headliners Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and The Killers. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, what a triple bill.

And with that, it’s on to news of extra additions at Newcastle alt-fest Tusk, cool Croatian quantity Unknown, and niche Polish happening Unsound.
