Festival line-up update – 3 Dec 2012

Artist News Festival Line-Up Update Gigs & Festivals

Pleasure Principle

So in festival additions news, Nottingham ‘lad’ Jake Bugg is going to be playing the first night parties of Mallorca and Ibiza Rocks in 2013, an honour awarded to Biffy Clyro, Plan B and Ed Sheeran in past years.

Says young Bugg, who’s the only artist confirmed at either festival so far: “I’m really looking forward to playing Ibiza Rocks in 2013. I did it as support earlier this year with Ben Howard, so it’s great to be invited back to play a great outdoor headline set. It seems like every time people say guitar music is dead, that’s when it comes back. I think people are hungry for it”.

They sure are. Trace Bugg’s above-mentioned movements, plus the first sign of what’s destined to be a fine new alt-dance weekender, Pleasure Principle, via the following listings:
