Last week northerners might have been thinking, "where's our midsummer festival lineup news?". Well, this week the north strikes back! Liverpool Sound City (1-3 May, various venues, liverpoolsoundcity.co.uk) has revealed that joining Wolf Alice , John Cale and Thurston Moore on Merseyside will be anthemic-pop pickers Kodaline and super furry bloke Gruff Rhys (pictured) . . . Meanwhile at Manchester's Parklife weekender (7 & 8 Jun, Heaton Park , parklife.uk.com ) Snoop Dogg will be headlining a dance-pop heavy lineup which includes Disclosure and Rudimental . . . If that all sounds a bit too jolly for you then you'll be pleased to hear that Interpol have returned. See them apply a defibrillator to post-punk's rotting corpse this March (18-27 Mar, tour starts O2 Academy , Glasgow , nme.com ) . . . Wychwood festival has added Newton Faulkner to its lineup (30 May-1 Jun, Cheltenham Racecourse, wychwoodfestival.com ) . . . Finally, FARR festival has unveiled the first bit of their lineup with housey disco dons Hercules & Love Affair, electronica dudes Mount Kimbie and grumpy Twitter techno bloke Scuba all in attendance (18-20 Jul, Bygrave Woods, Newham, farrfestival.co.uk).
