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:
