Body & soul

I think I’d be happy simply with Kurt Vile, whose latest LP is easily one of my albums of the year. But Body & Soul aren’t resting on their laurels and today have made a few healthy additions to an already great lineup. The Choice-nominated Wallis Bird, always never less than great live, Fuck Buttons, next big thing Kate Boy, the Congos and Forrests are all going to be playing Ballinlough Castle alongside the likes of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Solange, Charles Bradley and PiL. Day tickets start from €55 while a weekend ticket – three days plus camping – sets you back €139. More info, including the initial announcement of bands, here. There’s a Spotify playlist below of Body & Soul 2013 to whet your appetite.
