I fancy going to loads this summer, i.e. fairly DIY/low-key things with interesting music. Any ideas?
That does look decent!
Presuming it happens this year
They all seem pretty bereft of noisiness though.
Something I never expected.
Also, Underage unknown?
will be right up your street
can't really find out jack about this!
it's the last weekend of august this year. www.woolfirefestival.co.uk/
Don't know wtf I was googling! Does indeed look good, this.
Apologies for the self-promotion but I cannot resist.
Offset is a 2 dayer set in a beautiful forest location 30 minutes from London on the Central Line. We'll be putting on well over 100 bands over 8 stages, focusing on exciting new bands and the artists that influenced them.
Over the years we've put on Biffy Clyro, Martin Grech, The Duke Spirit, Art Brut, Eighties Matchbox, Jeremy Warmsley, Million Dead and hundreds of others, and tickets are always cheap as chips! Earlybird tickets for this year will be about 30 quid for a full weekend.
There's also the organic food, art, funfair, kids area and even a zoo...more info at http://www.offsetfestival.co.uk (sign up for the mailing list if it sounds of interest, we're relaunching the website later this week)

As good as any, I'd say.
never heard 'balls' used as a joyous exclamation before, only in relation to something going wrong/being annoying.
offest looks pretty darn good, I'm pretty up for that, £30! brilliant!
The Brainlove alldayer looks to be worth a pop at 8 nicker (price of some normal-length gigs in this toon!).
This could be intermittently decent:
The welikedangerouspop alldayer was last weekend so...arse.
Ah, I'm not very good at this. Obviously not 'down with the kids'.
was really good last year.
Me and all my mates went last year and the three of us had a great time.
My favourite bit was the bit with all the bonobos
in brixton. that'll be good, obvs.
plus woolfires looks good, as does brainlove's all-dayer.
Beachdown Festival in Devil's Dyke just outside Brighton. 4 day camping, 15,000 capacity. Right by the sea. Really good line up. Bonus!
This looks smarrrt.
SoundsXP presents a marvelous event with SEVEN bands @The Brixton Windmill -- with a free BBQ and all at the ludicrously cheap price of £5 in advance (http://www.wegottickets.com/event/27772)
SIX NATION STATE
SCREAMING TEA PARTY
REFLECTIONS OF A BULL
THE CHIARA L’S
As for more long term... IndieTracks is good if you like trains and twee bands. End of the Road is a bit bigger and has some good folky stuff and Truck is a lovely setting and has lovely extras like cheap ale, food, etc.
all-dayer in Manchester at the beginning of August. yo' should keep an eye on pineapplefolk.com...
