Are you going to the upcoming Reading Festival and Leeds Festival? Or are you a fan of Electric Picnic, Latitude Festival or The Big Chill? These are all put on by a festival giant named Festival Republic, and they've just announced plans to do something totally opposite of these giant music festivals with a brand new micro festival in 2013.

"It's going to be a very small festival, very independent, very tiny," promising more details on the event in September or October. I am very positive about it. Festivals is a very busy, probably saturated market but there will be new additions next year and there will be people that stop doing it next year - that's the nature of things. Overall, I feel very confident about it," said Melvin Benn, the MD of Festival Republic when speaking to MusicWeek.

Independent-minded festivals with a targeted music selection are a nice alternative to the giant music festival, where everything is about epic proportions. All Tomorrow's Parties have been on the dedicated festival tip for years with festivals all over the world -- Europe, Japan, the U.S., and even the newly announced ATP Melbourne 2013 that was just announced last week.

In the meantime, check out our listing for the Reading Festival and Leeds Festival in the Spacelab Festival Guide, they're set to happen in about a week in a half. You can also check out our music festival news page for more updates on music festivals.
