Hove Festival 2008 line-up completed
A raft of new additions including Lupe Fiasco, Hercules & Love Affair, Vampire Weekend and Neon Neon have completed the line-up for this year’s Hove Festival in Norway.
Other last-gasp entries for the DiS-sponsored event, which takes place June 23-27 on the island of Tromøya on Norway’s south coast, are Panic At The Disco, Blood Red Shoes, Ting Tings, Midnight Juggernauts, Jaguar Love, Dengue Fever, Kelley Stoltz, Ladyhawke, White Denim and White Rabbits.
In addition to its real-purdy setting the festival is more environmentally sound than Boris Johnston running red lights on a penny farthing – lower emissions ‘cos they’ve only one wheel – with solar-powered mobile phone charging, windmill and solar-heated water supplies and recycled shopping bags and food packaging.
There’ll also be assorted other delights including a ‘forest clubbing’ with gourmet restaurant and nightly cinema screenings on the beach.
Other acts already confirmed for the festival which make DiS go all queasy with longing include Deerhunter, Beck, Jay-Z, Animal Collective, Black Lips, The Raconteurs, Wild Beasts and Black Mountain, among others.
Tickets are available here at £190 plus booking fee; we’d strongly advise you to get some, vested interests on our part or no.
