Weekends away: July 25th-27th

Deer Shed

WHAT? Reliable old 'family friendliness' from a festival that pledges to treat the kids well and the families sated. Other entertainments include Bob Stanley in conversation, scientific demonstrations and a Fall-based round table involving four ex-members (including both Hanleys). The site refers to a 'Time Travel' theme. If that means fancy dress there'll be trouble.

WHERE? Baldersby Park, Topcliffe, North Yorkshire

HOW? £109, soon to become £119

WHO? British Sea Power, Johnny Marr, Slow Club, Summer Camp, Toy, Steve Mason, Georgia Ruth, Pins, Cate Le Bon, Cheatahs, Sam Airey, Nordic Giants, Withered Hand, Post War Glamour Girls, Girls Names, Wolf Alice, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Stornoway, Woman's Hour, Happyness, PAWS, Teleman, All We Are, We Were Evergreen, Eliza And The Bear


WHAT? An eighth year of gathering the indiepop clans together in the grounds of a railway museum - the one thing you'll probably know about the festival is its acoustic stage in the goods wagon of a steam train, but that's not to overlook the stages in a tram shed and deconsecrated tin church.

WHERE? Midland Railway Museum, Ripley, Derbyshire

HOW? £72 either online or from the railway

WHO? Gruff Rhys, Allo Darlin', Joanna Gruesome, Dean Wareham, Spearmint (!), The Popguns, The Spook School, Sweet Baboo, The Chills, MJ Hibbett and the Validators, The Hidden Cameras, Laura J Martin, Trust Fund, The Just Joans, Withered Hand, Cosines, Let's Wrestle, No Ditching, ONSIND, Ravioli Me Away, The Flatmates, Nat Johnson, The Proper Ornaments, TeenCanteen
