Festivals are about a lot of things, paying over the odds for crap burgers and avoiding portaloos mainly, but they're also brilliant for discovering new music too.
OK, so nobody really buys a ticket to exclusively see brand new acts but the assortment of fresh new stuff on offer is a tasty treat on top of the huge bands you set out to see rocking the main stage.
