The line-up of Norway’s Hove Festival – one of a handful of DiS-associated events going down this summer, y’all – is taking shape very nicely.
The five-day festival, held in the beautiful surroundings of an island just outside Arendal in June, is managing to balance environmental responsibilities – see this DiScussion for further details – with a line-up to rival that of any well-established festival, in the UK and abroad.
