Artist News Festival Line-Up Update Gigs & Festivals

Soundwave Croatia

So, take note shipmates, the theme for Bestival 2013 is HMS Bestival. Meanwhile, in the line ups domain, Sonisphere’s French edition has just acquired Slayer (and Korn), who join Iron Maiden, Motörhead and the like. The Barcelona-based Sonar (which also has editions in Reykjavik, Cape Town, Tokyo and Sao Paulo next year) adds Kraftwerk and Pet Shop Boys, who’ll each be presenting special technologically-advanced live sets… an AV 3D one, in Kraftwerk’s case. Croatian electronica fest-by-the-sea Soundwave, meanwhile, names Bonobo, Kelpe, Om Unit and funk-philanderer Craig Charles amid its first wave of artists. This is a summary of the specifics:
