Actually, looking again, it a shame that the festival list is not more exhaustive. It is much too limited to the big commercial outfits. What about the local ones? Is there more information on the way? TIME OUT used to be famous for its listings - what is happening? Who took it over? It makes it far less authoritative, and far less interesting. Just another tourist mag in fact.

Pretty good, but what about the LOVE SUPREME festival near Brighton July 5th-7th? Admittedly it is new this year! Features Terence Blanchard, Chic with Niles Rodger, Esmeralda Spalding, Melanie Gardot, etc. (Jazz and soul)
