want some sides with your festival?
The Doves and I Am Kloots announce sideshows.
Yes please ? as if the line up for Playground Weekender 2011 didn't have us excited enough already. Haven't seen it yet? Click here. The second big lineup announcement will be on Monday ? but in the meantime...
The Doves will be touring our humble little island to promote the release of The Places Between: Best of Doves. For good reason, they bagged the headline spot at Playground Weekender and will be following it up with Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth shows. If you can't make it to the festival, here's your chance to see them in the flesh and see why they have two UK #1 albums to their name.

Also, I Am Kloot will be galavanting around Australia for the first time ever. Hold on to your hats! The Manchester lads will be playing songs off their new album Sky At Night which was produced by Elbow. The people behind the Mercury Prize liked it enough to shortlist it as album of the year, so the shows definitely won't disappoint.
