This year's event takes place at the Royal Festival Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall between June 7 and 27, and is curated by Soft Machine founder Robert Wyatt.

Of the events confirmed so far, Pink Floyd's David Gilmour will play his first solo gig in London for over ten years, supported by Sparklehorse (June 22). The following evening (June 23) at the Festival Hall, Tricky is confirmed to appear, with special guest Saul Williams.
