The clocks now firmly forward, it's time for us to look ahead to the blisteringly hot summer we're bound to have in mere months (you have to believe…) and get planning our gig-going schedule. The last few summers have seen festival season grow and grow and 2014 looks like being the most jam-packed yet, with dozens upon dozens of musical extravaganzas set to take place in fields, streets, tents and venues around the country. With that in mind, this fortnight Hot Press brings you our annual Festival Guide, your one-stop shop for deciding whether it will be Castlepalooza or Forbidden Fruit, Electric Picnic or Longitude, for you. Decisions, decisions, but at least we'll make the selection process a little easier.
As for our cover star, well, it's one for the ladies – and a number of the fellas, naturally – this fortnight, as everyone's favourite swoonworthy Scottish songwriter Paolo Nutini makes his return to the music scene. Five years on from the release of Sunny Side Up, Nutini is ready to re-enter the fray with Caustic Love. He sits down with Olaf Tyaransen to talk about spending time away from the limelight meeting new friends, how he's not as confident as one would imagine, ignoring the pitfalls of fame and much, much more.
Also in this issue, Craig Fitzpatrick catch up with an O2-bound Tinie Tempah, fresh from playing the BRITS where he high-fived Prince William and got in a photo sandwich with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. He opens up about staying positive when growing up on a council estate, leading a new confident wave of British music and how, sometimes, he'd just like to lead a life of anonymity.
Dylan Moran, currently starring in Calvary (reviewed this issue), gives Roe McDermott his take on religion and why the Irish need to talk. Wallis Bird discusses moving to Berlin and her new dance direction. We travel to SXSW to get all the shots of the Irish contingent. Plus, interviews with DFF, DJ Yoda, Lucius and more. Meanwhile, our Hot Press interview finds us sitting down with Paul McGinley as he prepares for the Ryder Cup. In YourTube, New Zealand comedian Rhys Darby talks about his new show Short Poppies, as well as his former co-stars Chris O'Dowd and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Frontlines finds us attending the premiere of the new series of Game Of Thrones and chatting to TXFM breakfast jock Cathal Funge as the new station goes to air. In Critical Mass, we review new releases from SKy Ferreira, Wallis Bird, Paolo Nutini and more, as well as give detailed reports on recent shows from the likes of Wild Beasts and Earl Sweatshirt. As per usual, that's just the tip of the iceberg.
