20 New Bands To See At Festivals This Summer

As you might have heard, this week’s issue of NME is the ultimate guide to 2012’s festivals, which – thank the lord – are literally around the corner now.

Camden Crawl, Simple Things and Live At Leeds all take place this weekend, with Great Escape and a whole host of others hot on their heels. And to celebrate, here’s the 20 best new bands set to grace our shores this summer. Have a listen below, pick up the mag to find out which fests they’re all appearing at and we’ll see you down the front.

Oh yeah – the following two acts are so new/lazy they don’t have anything on Soundcloud yet, so we’ve had to embed their best bits off YouTube instead:

Palma Violets – ‘Happy Endings’

Savages – ‘City’s Full’
