DIG out your straw hats, and get your festival-style back in gear as a string of huge British and American acts head down to Spain for a host of summer festivals.

Blur’s Damon Albarn, whose solo career is kicking off in a big way in the UK, will headline the S.O.S. 4.8 Murcia festival on May 2-3, along with The Kooks and The Prodigy.

Albarn, who also writes the music for Gorillaz and has an African music label, was voted the fourth greatest frontman in a recent poll for Q Magazine.

Fellow British rockers Franz Ferdinand – creators of the iconic ‘Take Me Out’ – will take centre stage with American rock group MGMT at festival Bilbao BBK Live, from July 10-12.

Fans of sing-a-longs round the campfire will be happy to hear singer-songwriter Jack Johnson will also take to the Bilbao stage, to serenade the crowd with his Hawaiian melodies.

The festival season will be brought to a triumphant conclusion by Bastille, Placebo and The Wombats, at Arenal Sound in Castellon, from July 31-August 3.
