No Tomorrow's Next Headliner!

Stuck for post-exams plans? Wondering what the best way to kick off your summer is?

On Saturday 7 June the sun-kissed surroundings of Nottingham’s own Wollaton Park will be transformed for the much anticipated No Tomorrow Festival.

URN will be keeping you up to date with all the latest news and, as promised, here is the next Headliner!

Indiana:


Indiana made her much-anticipated return to Nottingham last Saturday (12th April) at Rescue Rooms and no fewer than three days later, she's been confirmed as an addition to the No Tomorrow lineup! Indiana made her first live debut in Old Market Square two years ago, and since signing a deal with Sony, she has an album out later this year and a host of Summer Festival commitments. Her two Radio 1-supported singles, Mess Around and Solo Dancing - the latter due for release on 20th April - are excellent examples of the artist and show the extent to which she has risen in the last few years. Having played at Glastonbury, played in front of the Queen and had a baby in her short rise to stardom, this is certainly the start of much bigger things for Indiana.

This week, Joe put the questions to the Big Picture panel, asking them about:

- Maria Miller MP's expenses scandal, and her resignation as Culture Secretary;

- The recent southern English smog, and its implications for broader attention to health and environmentalism, at home and internationally.

- The historical Presidential Elections in Afghanistan, the first democratic-to-democratic transfer of power in the nation's history.
