Big news this week from MADE Festival who released details of their monster line up, whilst Wireless added more names and Dixon is the final guest at Cocoon in the Park. Scotland also has another new festival to look forward to - find out about the Aviemore Stopover here.

We got busy on the top five front, looking at both Rock and Indie and Foreign Festivals, as well as five bands to look out for at Dot to Dot


Maceo Plex will be leading the way at Electric Brixton this Easter, whilst our mates A Wing return in May with High Contrast (check out their latest video below). We took a long look at what's on offer at Sankeys over Easter, admired James Holden's new live show, and got excited about seeing DJ Marky on a boat this summer.

On the interview tip we spoke with techno royalty Valentino Kanzyani, South African producers par excellence Goldfish and house star in the making Alex Adair. And we're giving away tickets to see DJ Pierre alongside some t-shirts based on him.

Live Music

Queen of hip hop soul Mary J Blige is heading to the UK in the summer, whilst possible man of 2015 Skepta hits Leeds this weekend. Manchester venue Band on the Wall has loads to look forward to next month, as well as a fundraiser with Snarky Puppy in Leeds.

Time's up for this instalment, I'm off to frantically stockpile Cadbury's Creme Eggs.
