It’s almost the end of June, but that hasn’t stopped the festival lineup announcements from continuing their parade. The latest additions:

Los Angeles’ FYF Fest (formerly known as the Fuck Yeah Fest) just announced its lineup yesterday. The now two-day fest features a roster that includes recent SPIN cover stars Sleigh Bells, FIDLAR, Ceremony, the reunited Desaparecidos and Refused, and the makers of SPIN’s favorite album of 2011, Fucked Up. The fest will take place where it has for the past four years, in L.A.’s State Historic Park; tickets go on sale this Friday at 5 p.m. Pacific, and will only cost festgoers 77 bucks for the weekend.

Oslo’s Øya Festival announced additions to its lineup; Metronomy, Willis Earl Beal and Best Coast will play the August 7-11 fest, which already boasts performances by Björk, the Black Keys, Bon Iver, Refused, and Purity Ring.

End of the Road announced a second wave of artists; the new batch includes Graham Coxon, Patrick Watson, Savages, and Woods and will join Beach House and the Antlers August 31 to September 2 in Dorset, U.K.

And finally, London’s free, month-long iTunes festival added Ed Sheeran, Olly Murs, JLS, Rebecca Ferguson, and Andrea Bocelli to its already Jack White-and-One Direction-featuring roster, which will play throughout the month of September. The series calendar (and how to win tickets, since it’s free) can be found on the event’s website.
