Summer Sundae Weekender

The Maccabees. Graham Coxon, Newton Faulkner, The Bees, Bellowhead, The Cuban Brothers, Wilko Johnson, John Cooper Clarke.

This lovely and defiantly independent festival – aligned with such indie music linchpins as Drowned In Soud– might lack big, grandstanding names but it does offer a terrific mix of middle-ranking folk-rockers and cultish indie types, from poignant indie kids TM to Blur guitarist and folk-punker Coxon and TB, the sunny and languorous indie-pop septet. But just as in years gone by there'll be a few suprises along the way, so keep those peepers peeled.
