Latest additions to the Body & Soul festival which takes place at Ballinlough Castle, Co Westmeath from June 21 to 23:

Fuck Buttons (hell yeah!)
The Congos (“Fisherman” will sound ace in that setting)
Kate Boy (Stockholm-based band playing as part of their first ever tour)
Forrests (Dublin-based two-piece with a soon-come debut album under their collective oxters)

They join the previously announced Solange, Nick Cave, PiL (featuring sexist numptie John Lydon), Charles Bradley, George Fitzgerald and many more. We hear that more acts will be added to the bill in the coming weeks.

Weekend camping tickets for the festival are €139 a pop (plus TM rebates tax) and are now on sale
