Nashville, TN - (October 7, 2011) – Throughout the month of October, The McClymonts, after having just wrapped up their U.S. tour, will be hitting the national TV and radio outlets. On the morning of Saturday, October 8, the girls’ recent visit with NPR’s Weekend Edition will air. Next up, the girls take on the Big Apple with visits to Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends Weekend and The Better Show. Their Fox & Friends episode is set to air on October 16 and The Better Show taping will be broadcast nationally on October 24.
Sisters Brooke, Sam and Mollie have already conquered Australia and are now targeting the U.S. On August 23, The McClymonts released their album, Wrapped Up Good, in The States. The same album, produced by Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift’s producer) and Adam Anders (Executive Music Producer for Fox TV’s Glee,) was the #5 country album for 2010 in their homeland, outselling the releases from country stars Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, and Alan Jackson. In addition, for the last four years, they have won Best Group at the Country Music Awards of Australia and Best Country Album for 2008 and 2010 at the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) Awards. In 2010, The McClymonts opened for country music sensation Jason Aldean on his fall tour and worked with Lady Antebellum and even rock legend Ozzy Osbourne. Just this past month, they made their Grand Ole Opry debut and were immediately invited back to play a few weeks later.
The U.S. press is also starting to take notice. The girls were listed on USA Today’s “Playlist” as a pick of the week and critic John Shelton Ivany named their album as “One of the best albums of the year.” Don Chance of Scripps Howard News Service commented “Their new album, Wrapped Up Good, seems poised to put sisters Brooke, Samantha and Mollie McClymont on top of the U.S. charts as well as the Aussie charts….welcome to the big time!” The album seems to be on its way there. Their current single, “Wrapped Up Good,” just broke into the Top 40s this week on the Music Row chart and is currently positioned at #38. The video for the single can be seen nationally on GAC, CMT Pure, and TCN. Just this past week, the girls also shared their single with visits to local Nashville outlets, Music Row and Country Weekly.
Be sure to catch the girls this month and join them on their ride. To tune in this Saturday morning to NPR’s Weekend Edition, visit NPR.org to find your local time and station. Fox & Friends Weekend airs live from 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. ET on Sunday October 16 on the Fox News Channel. The Better Show episode will be televised on October 24.

New York, NY—October 7, 2011—Country star and celebrated TV host Craig Morgan is thrilled to join Field & Streamthe world’s leading outdoor magazine, in recognizing the 2011 Heroes of Conservation.  The honorees will be celebrated at a gala event in Washington D.C. on October 11, where they will be presented with a $5,000 conservation grant.  One honoree will be named Field & Stream’s Conservation Hero of the Year and will walk away with a new Toyota Tundra, all made possible by the generosity and support of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. Morgan will host the event and perform an acoustic set live for attendees.

Now in its sixth year, Field & Stream’s Heroes of Conservation program is dedicated to honoring individuals involved in grassroots projects to preserve the land, water and wildlife vital to sportsman’s pursuits.  Field & Stream’s 2011 Heroes of Conservation will be profiled in the October issue of Field & Stream, on newsstands September 20. The Heroes are also profiled in episodes of Field & Stream’s HOC TV, currently available at www.FieldandStream.com/heroes.


“Sportsmen don’t just talk about protecting wildlife and wild places,” says Anthony Licata, Editor of Field & Stream. “They actually do it. The conservationists we named heroes tonight are out in their community doing grassroots work, while also inspiring a lot more people to get involved and do their part. We’re proud to recognize and celebrate their accomplishments.”

"This is a very important program to Toyota because it acknowledges individuals who go out of their way to make the environment a better place," said Keith Dahl, National Marketing Manager for Toyota. "These people aren't looking for gratitude or recognition. Instead, they work tirelessly because they want to make a difference - for our generation and generations to come. We take great pride in being able to spotlight their efforts on a national stage."

Field & Stream has been committed to the preservation of natural resources for more than 100 years. The magazine helped to popularize the term “conservation ethic” in 1907 and in 2005 featured an article titled “Heroes of Conservation,” focused on the local efforts of everyday outdoorsmen. Out of this, a new program was created to recognize sportsmen’s efforts to protect fish and wildlife. Since the introduction of the program, the magazine has been proud to profile and supportthe conservation efforts of more than 200 men and women.

The Heroes of Conservation Awards are open to individuals involved in a hunting- and/or fishing-related conservation project that is well under way or completed. Selections are based on a number of factors, includingleadership,commitment, project growth, and results. One grand prize winner receives a new Toyota Tundra, and a cash prize of $5,000 is awarded to each finalist.

The Cranberries - neues Studioalbum ROSES

The Cranberries - neues Studioalbum ROSES im Februar 2012, Interviewmöglichkeit im November
Universal Music Bild

The Cranberries
Neues Studioalbum ROSES im Februar 2012
The Cranberries kehren im Februar 2012 mit "ROSES", ihrem ersten Studioalbum seit über zehn Jahren, in die Musikarena zurück!
Es erscheint weltweit bei Cooking Vinyl und in Deutschland am 10. Februar bei Vertigo Berlin. Die erste Single trägt den Titel "Tomorrow" und wird am 27. Januar 2012 veröffentlicht.

Die Karriere der Cranberries - Dolores O’Riordan, Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan und Fergal Lawler - begann 1989 in ihrer irischen Heimatstadt Limerick. Mit ihrem unverwechselbaren Sound und weltweit über 30 Millionen verkauften Alben wurde die Band zu einer DER musikalischen Stil-Ikonen der 1990er Jahre.

Produziert wurde "ROSES" von Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur), dem langjährigen Freund und musikalischen Partner der Band. Musikalisch erinnert es an den ursprünglichen und erfrischenden Sound ihrer ersten beiden Alben:
"Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?“ von 1993 und den Nachfolger "No Need To Argue" von 1994. Das letzte Album vor "ROSES“ war das 2001 erschienene "Wake Up And Smell The Coffee".

2003 gaben The Cranberries ihre Trennung bekannt, kamen sechs Jahre später aber noch einmal für eine Akustik-Performance zusammen, als Dolores O’Riordan 2009 ein Ehrendiplom am Trinity College erhielt.
“Sobald wir anfingen zu spielen war es, als hätten wir nie aufgehört”
, erinnert sich Dolores. “Mit den Cranberries zu spielen ist, wie wenn man das perfekte Paar Schuhe anzieht – es passt einfach.”

2010 ging die Band auf eine Reunion-Tour mit insgesamt 107 Konzerten in ganz Europa, Nord- und Südamerika und in Asien. Höhepunkt war schließlich 2011 ihr allererstes Konzert in China.

“Während unserer Trennung hatte ich zwei Alben mit verschiedenen Musikern aufgenommen”, erklärt Dolores. “Im Vergleich ist mir aufgefallen, dass Noel und Mike eine ganz besondere Art haben, Akkorde zu schreiben, und Ferg hält das alles auf ganz subtile Art und Weise zusammen. Wir hatten echt viel Spaß im Studio. Stephen war total in seinem Element und alles fügte sich super schnell zusammen. Wir fühlten uns frisch und jung – wie in alten Zeiten.
Gitarrist Noel Hogan fügt hinzu: “Für mich war immer klar, dass wir ein weiteres Album machen würden. Während der letzten sechs Jahre haben Dolores und ich uns immer wieder Ideen geschickt.”

Auf der Reunion-Tour begann die Band bei den Soundchecks an neuen Songs zu arbeiten.

“Die Krönung war es allerdings, wieder mit Stephen Street arbeiten zu können - er hat uns geholfen, unseren Sound wiederzufinden“, so Noel Hogan.

Die Songs auf "ROSES" stammen von einer Band, die wieder hungrig ist! In jedem Winkel hört man den außergewöhnlichen Klang von Dolores O´Riordans Stimme – das Markenzeichen der Band, das sie innerhalb weniger Jahre von einer jungen, hoffnungsvollen irischen Entdeckung Ende der 80er Jahre zu einer MTV-Sensation und zu Weltstars der 90er Jahre machte.

"Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?", das Debütalbum
der Cranberries mit den Hitsingles “Linger” und “Dreams”, erreichte in Großbritannien #1 der Charts. Der Nachfolger "No Need To Argue" etablierte die Band endgültig, u.a. mit Welthits wie “Zombie”, “Ridiculous Thoughts” und “Ode To My Family”. Das Album erhielt in den USA sieben- und in Europa fünffach Platin und schaffte es auf #1 in Deutschland, Österreich, Australien und #2 in Großbritannien.

The Cranberries hatten vier Alben in den Billboard Top 20, acht Hitsingles und verkauften weltweit über 30 Millionen Alben.

Interview with Andy Velo

Interview with Andy Velo

Lamitschka: Music has many new fans throughout Europe who may be hearing about you for the
first time. How would you describe yourself and the music you play to someone who has never seen
or heard you?

Andy Velo: It’s country and Southern Rock to the core. It’s who I am and what I relate to. Very full of
passion and emotion. I live for the live show. Every song that is on the album has a mental movie
played behind it that translates to the stage. We like to keep the songs real and relatable.

Lamitschka: How was the last year for you? What were your highlights?

Andy Velo: Last year was incredible, the banner year that has set everything in motion. We released
our 1st radio single and it allowed us to really focus in on our fan base. Sharing the stages with
incredible artists as we really marked the year in a positive light. A year of learning for sure.

Lamitschka: What is your latest CD and how's it doing?

Andy Velo: We just released “Southern Thing” to radio and it is doing incredibly well. It has always
been a song that my fan base has connected to very well but now that more people are diving into it,
it is starting to spread very well. It’s just one of those songs that you can relate to. Excited about the
upcoming album, more information on the full project to come.

Lamitschka: Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do you go about finding the songs for
your CD?

Andy Velo: I do write quite a bit but my job is to make sure the best possible songs are the ones that
make it to the projects. I love writing wht I see and having my thoughts or emotions come across,
it’s like building something you’re passionate about and then when it is said and done, standing
back and being able to look at what you’ve done. Same goes though for piecing together the album.
It doesn’t matter if I’ve written it or another writer, it’s about the best song that connects with
myself and my fans. I’ve made lots of friends at publishing companies that have believed in what is
going on that have brought me some really amazing material that I am stoked about. Can’t wait to
get this thing done!

Lamitschka: Please tell us about the songs on your album (influences, etc).

Andy Velo: Like I said, that album is built for the live show. It is all about my brand and what
represents me.

Lamitschka: Your current single is being played by radio. What do you feel is special about this
song that makes people want to hear it?

Andy Velo: The current radio single is called "Southern Thing." I wrote it a couple years ago and it
has really become the song that my fan base, here in Georgia especially, has come to identify with. I
just wrote about stuff I know about. I remember sitting there wanting to write a song like this but
wanting it to feel like something I could identify with rather than just your average "I'm from the
country and DAMN proud" kind of song. The song stems from the fact that I got to grow up in the
best of both worlds. I lived in Suwanee, GA from the time I was born, which at that time was an red
light intersection, a Stucky's, an old town caboose, and a whole lot of trees, fields, and small farms.
In staying here though, I watched it transition form that to a town of over 15,000 in a few years. So
it's a mesh of pride saying, "I'm proud of where I'm from here in the South," whether it be true
country living or suburbia.

Lamitschka: What kind of songs do you like to record the most?

Andy Velo: Don’t really have a favorite type of song, just need it to mean something when it’s
tracked. Party song to Love ballad, if it is going to be something that sticks in your head and you
connect with, that’s what I want to record.

Lamitschka: How much creative control do you have over your music?

Andy Velo: Complete. That’s how I feel like it should be. Do NOT get me wrong, there are a lot of
moving parts in the creative processes of my music with an amazing band that not only do I tour
with, they come into the studio as well, but also when there is a producer involved. But, at the end
of the day, the artist is responsible for their craft and their brand.

Lamitschka: Do you have any interesting stories about how fans have been affected by your music?

Andy Velo: Not one that I can recall in particular but there has been several that will contact me and
let me know how much they love or have been effected by a song. Heck, even the “Man, last night
was awesome! I really don’t remember what happened,” comments are great to know that we, as a
whole brand unit, are doing our job.

Lamitschka: Who inspires you musically and how deep do your musical roots run?

Andy Velo: I’m inspired by a lot of musicians, I could name them all, but I would have to say being
raised on Garth Brooks, as a performer and businessman, has been real key to keeping that drive
forward. He was electric. I would sit there for hours and play his songs over and over again. It just
proves he connected with his fans, made them a part of his life and career.

Lamitschka: What do you think about today's music scene versus its post and where do you see it
going in the future?

Andy Velo: I love where the music business is. Never has there been a time like now where as an
independent artist can you accomplish the things on your own that you can now. It proves that it
really is all about relationships.

Lamitschka: What do you think about today's music industry?

Andy Velo: My only quote for this, the music business will never be able to argue with butts in seats
and drinks in hands at live shows. You get that part right, you’re set.

Lamitschka: If you had the chance to change something about the music industry, what would it
be?

Andy Velo: Radio. Radio is so stuck on their playlists featuring mainly major label acts, it’s near
impossible for young artists to break. If I could change one thing it’s that if someone at radio
believes in a track, they play it, rather than being stuck to regulations of their parent corporate
company.

Lamitschka: Are you doing anything to take music beyond its current borders or are you happy
where it is?

Andy Velo: We will be giving away the next radio single on the tops of Jim Beam bottles. Visit
www.andyvelo.com for more details.

Lamitschka: What was your big break that got you into the music business?

Andy Velo: There have been several big shows with big acts (Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Jason Aldean, etc.) but my answer would be lots of sweat and learning how to handle stress. Hard work and living out a dream that I’ve had in my head since I was a kid. I’m not one to believe in breaks, I believe that you make your chances guided by the doors your faith opens up. Every opportunity is one more that you can build off of. I even think that if you are sitting at the top of the charts you still have “breaks” to go. This business is just like any other.

Lamitschka: What drives you?

Andy Velo: I’ve said performing but to be practical, I just love what I do. In addition, what I do now
in my business goals leads to my dreams of having a family and being that provider.

Lamitschka: What's unique about you that will differentiate you from other artists?

Andy Velo: I just feel like I see my business through the eyes of a business rather than just creative. It is about product, that’s where the creative lives, but from there you have to cultivate that product
and get it out there. That’s where a keen sense of figuring out this business puzzle comes in.

Lamitschka: Many music fans today get their information about artists online. Do you have your
own website and what will fans find there?

Andy Velo: absolutely.
www.andyvelo.com
www.facebook.com/andyvelomusic
www.twitter.com/andyvelo

Lamitschka: Fans are always hungry for good road stories. Do you have one you can share with us
(come on don’t be shy)?

Andy Velo: Navarre, FL we were playing as part of a college spring break tour. The bus got stuck in
sand, that was eventful.

Laurent Wery feat.Swift K.I.D & Dev: Single: Hey Hey Hey (Pop Another Bottle) (Original Radio Mix)

Laurent Wery feat.Swift K.I.D & Dev

Single: Hey Hey Hey (Pop Another Bottle) (Original Radio Mix)
VÖ: 25.11.2011

Nachdem sich die Originalversion von Laurent Werys "Hey Hey Hey" in den letzten Wochen bereits in ganz Europa zum veritablen Clubkracher entwickelt hat, erscheint der Track jetzt als neu erarbeitete und schwerstens gepimpte Version 2.0. Neben dem kanadischen Rapper Swift K.I.D. hat der belgische Superstar DJ für "Hey Hey Hey (Pop Another Bottle)" niemand Geringere als The Cataracs/ Far East Movement-Kollaborationspartnerin DEV als Special Guest verpflichten können! Gemeinsam nimmt man mit diesem Release nun Länder wie die UK, USA sowie Deutschland und die Beneluxstaaten unter verschärften Dancefloor-Beschuss. Bisher konnte der Track mehr als 2,5 Millionen Views auf YouTube verzeichnen - eine Zahl, die mit der aktualisierten Version noch einmal drastisch ansteigen wird!
Schon seit geraumer Zeit gilt Laurent Wery als einer von Belgiens versiertesten und anerkanntesten DJs. Als Resident-DJ in vier der größten belgischen Clubs, Gastauftritten bei diversen Major-Events und einer wöchentlichen Radioshow (die von 20 Radiostationen verteilt über den ganzen Kontinent ausgestrahlt wird) bringt er die Massen schon seit Jahren zum Schwitzen und zählt somit zur absoluten Speerspitze europäischer DJ-Kultur.
Während DEV momentan erste Soloerfolge mit ihrer Single "Bass Down Low" feiert und auch sonst durch Songs wie "Like A G6" (Far East Movement) oder die Nr. 1-Hitsingle "She Makes Me Wanna" (JLS) in aller Munde und Ohren ist, zählt der in Trinidad geborene Swift K.I.D. Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G. und Jadakiss zu seinen größten Einflüssen.
Neben dem Originalmix sind auf "Hey Hey Hey (Pop Another Bottle)" ebenfalls Remixe von Wideboys, Sunship, Kryder und Natural Born Grooves zu finden. In UK startet die Nummer bereits durch mit einer aktuellen # 8 in den Music Week Club Charts.
Frei nach dem Motto: Pop Another Bottle
Ella Endlich: Album: Meilenweit

Ella Endlich

Album: Meilenweit
VÖ: 14.10.2011

Nach dem Sensationserfolg ihrer ersten Single „Küss mich, halt mich, lieb mich“ im Winter 2009, nach Karl Svobodas Märchensuite, nach der Veröffentlichung des ersten Albums "DA" 2010, nach Millionen von YouTube- Klicks, TV-Auftritten, eigenen Moderations - Sendungen und nach der ersten Solotournee durch sechs deutsche Hauptstädte mit ihrem Orchester, veröffentlicht die in Weimar geborene und in Berlin lebende Künstlerin Ella Endlich am 14.10.2011 das zweite Album "Meilenweit". Es wurde in ihrer Berliner Musikproduktion Endlich-Musik kreiert.
Ella hat sich bereits im zarten Alter von 14 Jahren -in den 90´ern- als Popsternchen "Junia" die Hörner abgestoßen. Auch das mit Auszeichnung abgeschlossene Musik - Theater Diplom an der Bayerischen Theaterakademie August Everding hat die Antennen geschärft, den Stil geprägt und trägt maßgeblich dazu bei, dass Ella Endlichs Auftritte so anders wirken.
Ella Endlich scheint sich um größere Sinnfragen von Kritikern nicht zu kümmern und geht einen neuen, ihren ganz eigenen Weg.
"Musik ist Musik!“

VÖ: 14.10.2011

Frage: Was macht eigentlich ein Ausnahmetalent aus? Ständig sind wir mit diesem Begriff konfrontiert und wissen gar nicht so recht, was eigentlich dahinter steckt. Fakt ist, dass sich die Kriterien für ein wirkliches Ausnahmetalent nicht alleine an den Erfolgen festmachen lassen. Sondern vielleicht eher an den gemeisterten Herausforderungen, denen man sich im Leben entgegen wirft. So wie Irma: Ausnahmetalent Galore, Popprinzessin der Stunde und wohl exotischste Newcomerin des Jahres! Ihre Geschichte liest sich schon jetzt wie ein wirkliches Popmärchen, obwohl sie noch gar nicht richtig begonnen hat: 2003 kommt die damals erst 15jährige Irma aus dem winzigen Ort Bangangte im Westen Kameruns ins große, aufregende, schillernde Paris, um ihre Schulausbildung zu beenden. Schon früh zeichnete sich das enorme Talent ab, welches auch heute noch die Aura und die besondere Anziehungskraft der charismatischen Singer/ Songwriterin ausmacht. Paris, die Stadt der Liebe, aber auch die Stadt der Musik, die Irma sofort begann, in sich aufzusaugen: Camille, Michael Jackson und die Jackson 5, aber auch Cat Power, die Fugees und Queen. Der Start in ein ganz neues Leben, wie das autodidaktische Multitalent heute mit ihrem Debütalbum „Letter To The Lord“ eindrucksvoll demonstriert.

OST/ Various

Album: Footloose
VÖ: 14.10.2011

Er wurde zu einem der bekanntesten Musikfilme der 80er Jahre und sein Soundtrack ist bis heute Kult: "Footloose" brachte eine ganze Generation zum Tanzen und den Rock' n' Roll ins heimische Wohnzimmer. Am 20.10. startet ein großartiges Remake des Filmklassikers in den deutschen Kinos - dabei darf natürlich ein ebenso brillanter Soundtrack mit hochkarätigen Künstlern nicht fehlen!
Der Original Soundtrack zu "Footloose" liefert neben 8 brandneuen Tracks auch 4 neue Versionen der Original-Titel - allen voran der Titelsong "Footloose" neu interpretiert vom US-Country Star Blake Shelton. Das Tracklisting ist ein veritables Who-is-Who amerikanischer Country- und Rock-Superstars:  Angefangen bei der spektakulären Zusammenarbeit zwischen Pop-Schwergewicht Cee Lo Green & Bluesrocker Kenny Wayne Shepherd, über Countrystar Zac Brown (Zac Brown Band), dem Country-Duo Big & Rich (feat. Multiplatin-Artist Gretchen Wilson) bis hin zu den Alternative Rock-Ikonen der Smashing Pumpkins, dem Songbeitrag von Schauspielerin/ Sängerin Victoria Justice und den Southern Rock-Helden von A Thousand Horses. Und natürlich dürfen auch die Klassiker "Holding Out For A Hero" (Ella Mae Bowen) und "Let's Heat It For The Boy" (Jana Kramer) nicht fehlen!

LITTLE BIG TOWN & MANY MORE...


WEMBLEY ARENA, SUNDAY FEBRUARY 26TH 2012
Tickets on sale October 10th
Nashville,TN (October 6, 2011) -After a 20-year break, the pioneering and much loved International Festival of Country Music returns to Wembley Arena on Sunday, February 26th, 2012.  The stellar line-up features the very best in country, roots and bluegrass music. 

In a rare UK appearance, international country superstar Reba McEntire will headline the all day festival. With a career that spans over five decades and includes two Grammy Awards, 55 million worldwide album sales and 63 U.S. top ten hits, Reba is one of the biggest selling female artists of all time. Having last performed in the UK 12 years ago, the Wembley appearance will give British fans a rare opportunity to enjoy a true legend, live on the London stage.

Reba will be joined by fourteen-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs, a country trailblazer who struck his first chords on a mandolin over 52 years ago.  Ricky, who has collaborated with numerous artists including Bruce Hornsby, Emmylou Harris and Jack White, will be bringing his own inimitable take on bluegrass and roots music to the festival.

Feted country music band Lonestar, who first made their debut on the Billboard country music charts in 1995, are also featured on the bill. Lonestar have gained international respect and acclaim with ten number one singles on the U.S. country charts alone. British fans will instantly recognize their song 'Amazed' which spent eight weeks at number 1 on the Billboard chart.

Joining the headliners will be critically acclaimed quartet Little Big Town, who are also making their international debut at this event. As a band renowned for breaking new musical ground, Little Big Town have sold over 1.5 million records and garnered four Grammy nominations over the past twelve years.

In addition to the four headliners, the festival will host an impressive array of supporting acts including; country and rockabilly legend, Narvel Felts, the "King of Cajun" Jo-El Sonnier and Texas-born George Ducas. The full line-up also features George Hamilton IV, Will Banister, Raymond Froggatt and John McNicholl, with more acts to be announced shortly.

The International Festival of Country Music ran for 23 years from 1969 to 1991 at Wembley Arena.  The shows, promoted by the legendary Mervyn Conn, were the first to introduce country music to the British public and featured a host of (now) legendary artists including; Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette, Jerry Lee Lewis, Crystal Gayle and many more.

International Festival of Country Music founder and CEO of MM Events Ltd., Mervyn Conn said: "I'm bringing the International Festival of Country Music back after over twenty years due to popular demand. The regard for Country Music has grown significantly in the UK since the first year I promoted this event and I believe that now is the time to reintroduce this once hugely popular event to converted fans of country music and to a new and emerging group of country music lovers. I have also brought back Trisha Walker-(Cunningham) who worked with me for 10 years in the early days and is my Company President in the USA."

Reba McEntire comments; "My band, crew and I are really looking forward to going back to Europe to play our music.  The last time we performed there was in 1999!  We have been very busy for the last 10 years doing the REBA TV show and concerts in North America. Now, we are so excited to be able to travel abroad and do both our new and old songs for our European audience, who has always been so good to us."

After the Wembley date, the festival will travel to Belfast, Zurich and Germany.
