@ The Park is a new series of shows in a 5,000 cpacity tent at Marlay Park, Dublin this summer. Villagers and Beach House play the first show under canvas on July 23 (tickets €33.60 plus TM fees), while Rodrigo Y Gabriela and Seasick Steve are in tent on July 31 (tickets €39.20 plus TM charges).

There was a hefty line-up announced yesterday for Belfast’s Belsonic festival, which takes place at the city’s Custom House Square in August. Acts on a Belsonic buzz include Dizzee Rascal (August 17, tickets £31.50 plus Ticketmaster fees), Primal Scream (performing “Screamadelica” on August 19, tickets £29 plus TM fees), Elbow (August 24, tickets £33 plus TM fees), Plan B and the excellent Katy B (August 25, tickets £31.50 plus TM fees ) and The Specials (August 27, tickets £33 plus TM fees).

Meanwhile, that mooted Lil Wayne gig in Cork is now cancelled. Dude’s entire European tour has been 86′d due to work permit difficulties in the UK.
