Post some bills

An update on some of the less Mean Fiddlised (apart from one) festivals we're either going to or would love to go to (hint hint, press pass suppliers):

Guilfest: With Radio 2 sponsorship, which we don't recall seeing before. Headliners are Embrace on the Friday after the World Cup final, A-Ha on Saturday and, crumbs, Billy Idol on the Sunday, with reactivated Wonder Stuff and Lightning Seeds among the other bands confirmed, who are the as usual eclectic mix of Gary Numan, the Stranglers, Sparks, Stereo MCs, Morning Runner, Nizlopi, Blue Oyster Cult, the Waterboys and the Levellers.

Latitude: We've not covered this before because co-creator Melvin Benn was being very secretive about its origins, but now it can be told. It's at Henham Park Estate, Beccles from 14th to 16th July, £95 the three days, and it's kind of a cross between those European arts festivals and something like Hay-On-Wye, promising art both performance and standable, comedy (Rob Newman, Robin Ince's Book Club, Guilty Pleasures DJs), cabaret, film and theatre and the like along with music, with only headliners Snow Patrol, Mogwai and Antony And The Johnsons so far announced. Proof of the pudding and all that.

Truck: Mystery Jets have been confirmed as one headliner, with the other yet to be announced. Until the Futureheads announced it in this month's The Fly magazine, obviously. Elsewhere we find ¡Forward, Russia!, Chicks On Speed, the Young Knives, Hundred Reasons, Jetplane Landing, The Organ, 65daysofstatic, The Research, Chris T-T, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Regina Spektor, Seth Lakeman and Anathallo.

Cambridge Folk Festival: Folk by the skin of its teeth, of course. The shebang starts on Thursday 27th July with Chumbawamba and Nizlopi, Friday features Richard Thompson, Amadou & Mariam, Seth Lakeman and the Broken Family Band, Saturday stars the Chieftans, Cerys Matthews, Nickel Creek, Cara Dillon and Teddy Thompson, with Emmylou Harris, Eddi Reader and Rodrigo Y Gabriela rounding the thing off.

Summer Sundae: Just about everyone who's ever read this blog will be there. Oh, you mean performing? A superb value bill sees Elbow headline the Friday over Delays, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Richard Hawley, DJ Format, Seth Lakeman, Baxter Dury and the Blockheads with Phill Jupitus; Saturday is headed by, um, Gomez ahead of Calexico, the Proclaimers, Martha Wainwright, Nouvelle Vague, Vashti Bunyan, Isobel Campbell, Brakes, ¡Forward, Russia! and the Young Knives, while Belle & Sebastian cap it all off with the aid of Jose Gonzalez, Coldcut, Morning Runner, the Buzzcocks, Guillemots, The Boy Least Likely To, Long Blondes and Larrikin Love.

Green Man: A new venue and a refreshment of the facilities including a later licence aid a vastly improved bill. Donovan, Jose Gonzalez and Calexico headline while Bert Jansch, King Creosote, James Yorkston, Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, Gruff Rhys, Kieran Hebden with Steven Reid, the Television Personalities, Tunng, Archie Bronson Outfit, Euros Childs, The Aliens, Chris T-T and Brave Captain swell the bill out among many others.

Secret Garden Party: Keep your eyes open around Huntingdon, that's all they'll say. The first lot of acts were announced this very day, being Graham Coxon, Prince Buster, Larrikin Love, the Long Blondes, Lily Allen The Latest Myspace Star (to give her her full name), OK Go, The Real Tuesday Weld, a reunion Utah Saints set, the Dub Pistols, the Chalets, Dawn Penn, Seal Club Clubbing Club, Infadels and the Rumble Strips.

Bestival: Fancy dress shops as far away as Dorchester will be out of stock. Corking headliners in the Pet Shop Boys and Scissor Sisters, both on their only festival shows of the summer, plus the usual remarkable and eclectic line-up encompassing Devendra Banhart, the Stranglers, The Fall, King Creosote, Jamie T, Kid Creole and the Coconuts (!), the Young Knives, Kanda Bongo Man, The Boy Least Likely To, James Yorkston and the Fence Collective in general, The Aliens, Jeremy Warmsley, Klaxons, Tunng, Jegsy Dodd, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Breaks Co-op, Hot Chip, John Martyn, Mystery Jets, Nizlopi, Son Of Dave and a cartel of international DJs.

Well, I can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that there are all of three people manning the Cambridge Folk Festival ticket counters last weekend when the tickets went on sale. Some of my chums queued nine hours on Sunday.

And then others went again on Monday morning and got served almost immediately. I would imagine it's sold out now though.
