Belsonic 2010 plays host to a plethora of bands over a two week stint of gigs.

Kid Rock will release his 8th studio album, “Born Free,” on November 16th via Atlantic Records. The record was produced by Rick Rubin and mixed by Greg Fidelman. The first single from the album will be, appropriately, “Born Free” which hits radio September 14th. “Born Free” is in many ways a transformational album for Kid Rock. While there is still the edge, wit, and swagger of previous albums, he doesn’t rap, there’s no metal – there isn’t even a parental warning sticker. Says Kid Rock, “The catalyst for this record was Detroit, and my thoughts on the world through the lens of Detroit. Watching everything go downhill over the past few years, the economy, the loss of jobs everywhere, I wanted to make a record that reflected the times but that still had soul.”

It can be difficult keeping up with the events of Carl Barat’s life, with more twists and turns than a soap opera, you only have to blink and you’ve missed another memorable episode. Band breakups, public spats, health scares and reformations all feature on this roller coaster ride of a decade for the Libertine. Yet life is now looking pretty sweet for Carl, having recently regrouped with his first love, the Libertines, and played historic gigs that were met with critical acclaim. He’s also just completed work on his first solo album and written a book of memoirs, demonstrating a work rate that could rival Damon Albarn’s.
- (Friday 8/27/10) -
It didn’t take long after arriving through the gates on Friday to guess where most people’s thoughts for the day ahead were focused. There’s countless Libertines t-shirts proudly on display amongst those soaking up the sun on the first day, and the anticipation for the gig which some thought, even after the news of their reunion, would never happen is obvious. There’s been mumblings of an underwhelming line-up at the Reading/Leeds festivals this year, but in isolation, the Friday billing at Leeds is as strong as any of the UK festivals can boast this summer.
