Festival line-up update – 4 Dec 2012
T In The Park celebrates its 20th anniversary next year, and getting in a party mood early its organisers have just announced that Rihanna and Mumford & Sons will headline the event. What a combination.
Also new in the realm of artist additions to festivals are the likes of Blondie, The Maccabees, Bloc Party, Ellie Goulding and Jake Bugg, who’ll all be playing at the Isle Of Wight Festival in 2013. The Berlin-based CTM, meanwhile, makes its presence felt via new consignments Dean Blunt, Simian Mobile Disco, Pantha du Prince, Holly Herndon and Skream. Oh, and American nu-metallers Coal Chamber are going to be at Download, so that’s nice.
