    The Yardbirds are a classic blues rock band who came out of retirement in 1992 after being inducted into America's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their high quality music speaks for itself with hits such as 'For Your Love', 'Heart Full of Soul' and 'Shape of Things'. The Yardbirds are: Jim McCarty (drums), Ben King (lead guitar), Top Topham (rhythm guitar), Andy Mitchell (lead vocals/harmonica) and David Smale (bass guitar). They are joined by Some Velvet Morning, who first came to the attention of the music press with their 2007 debut album, Silence Will Kill You which was nominated for XFM Album of the Year. Following radio success in the UK and France, ‘How To Start A Revolution’, taken from the band’s second album Allies, recently featured in Irvine Welsh’s Filth and is set to appear as the main title for a new feature Two Days In the Smoke, starring Matt Di’Angelo from BBC’s Hustle. http://www.theyardbirds.com http://www.somevelvetmorning.co.uk

    Imagine pitching up your tent in the middle of a gorgeous farm, no roads, no troublesome neighbours, just a lake, rolling fields, a beer tent, great food and most importantly a main stage playing amazing music with your friends. Arrive at lunchtime on Friday, get stuck into some Pimms lazing around in the sunshine (we like to remain optimistic) whilst listening to some dreamy acoustic music during the afternoon. Then get settled into the big sounds as the sun starts to set across the lake by the main stage. You can see that we have an incredible line up of live bands for you to savour until midnight. If that’s not enough, after midnight, move to the tents to dance the night away. One of the main goals of Lubstock is to introduce live music to young people; we have designed the festival to be child friendly with an area specifically for people with children. The family area is a fenced off quiet area with its own facilities. We would advise that you bring your own childcare for your young children over the weekend so that you can be free to experience your own Lubstock experience once they’ve gone to bed! It will also be an amazing opportunity for festival virgins. If you want a solution to a mid-life crisis, (whether you’re having one or not!). Whether you’ve watched Glastonbury on TV, but never took the plunge (too many people, no showers and those loos….) then Lubstock is the festival for you. If you’re prepared to experiment and get excited at the thought of new and unsigned bands (no covers, all original music which has been written, produced and played by the bands) then Lubstock is the festival for you.

Bio: Some Velvet Morning, formed by the Lambert brothers (Des and Gavin) with Rob Flanagan in North London, are influenced as much by 80s synth-pop as the guitar melodies and counter-melodies of U2’s The Edge. “A lot of bands start out the art school way,” says Des, “with a certain purpose.

Q: Hey SVM what is each of yours favourite albums of this year so far? And who would each of you like to collaborate with given the choice & opportunity around making music today? Any on the new album?

A: We like Saint Hotel's 'Voyeur', Arcade Fire's 'Reflektor' (ok last year technically) and The Black Keys 'Turn Blue'. I think we'd like to work with Flood, who did many of U2's albums. Des would love to work with Martin Gore from Depeche Mode. Rob would like to work with Paul McCartney, but maybe someone else could sing these days! We'll have him on bass!
