Latest additions to the Body & Soul beano are Spiritualized, Django Django (yes!) and Hollie Cook (hurrah! She was superb at Trans last December). Body & Soul happens at Ballinlough Castle, Co Westmeath from June 22 to 24. Weekend camping tickets are €99 (plus TM’s cut)

Loads of festival line-ups and additions on the way too (yeah, they waited for the rain). Castlepalooza announce a tasty list of acts tomorrow, Glasgowbury unleash the beast for the “small but mighty” fest in the middle of the Sperrin Mountains over the weekend and there’s also a brand new festival happening over the August bank holiday weekend at the Liss Ard estate outside Skibereen in west Cork seeking to recreate the Liss Ard festival vibe of the late 1990s. Get The Ticket on Friday for our guide to the musical summer in the fields, big tops, sports stadiums and parks.
