Festival: Big Festival in Biarritz
The bill for another of France's summer festivals has been revealed, with the Big festival taking place in Biarritz, the country's surf capital, from the 18th to the 22nd of July.
The first 11 artists have been confirmed, and so far it is a predominately French event.
Pete Doherty is at the top of the bill, I'm sure he's as much a fan of the beach and sunshine as the next man. New York's The Rapture are there too, and although American they're no strangers to France with their most recent album In the Grace of Your Love being partially recorded in Paris and produced by Philippe Zdar from Cassius.
Meanwhile, there is a very strong list of French artists on the bill so far. Sébastien Tellier is there, playing following the release of his My God is Blue which already looks set to be one of this years' most interesting releases.
M83, one of the strongest live acts around anywhere never mind France are playing. Birdy Nam Nam, Izia and Yuksek have also been confirmed.
Skip the Use, Shaka Ponk anad Joeystarr are also on the bill and more acts are to be added.
Tickets for the festival are on sale now and day tickets are available from March 28.
