Justin Timberlake plays V Festival

The following words which open the next sentence may come to a bit of a shock to you, but hear us out. Justin Timberlake dances like a guy in a nightclub who is trying to impress the girls...Bear with us!...He flaps his hands in the air, casually flicks his jacket, plays invisible drums...On the dancefloor this may be the signs of one too many Bacardi Breezers, but it’s JT and it just goes to show the Memphis star can do just about bloody anything and it will be cool.

James play Camp Bestival

Ask most people to name two releases by James and the chances are they will struggle past ‘Sit Down’. The 1991 re-release ( in 1989 the original release reached no. 77 in the charts, two years later it shot to number 2) was a double edged sword for the Mancunian lads, on the one hand it not only catapulted them into the Britpop era, it placed the song into one of the most remembered songs of that decade. But its success drained the band when it came to live performances, for a couple of years James omitted the track from their sets. It even nearly didn’t make an airing tonight, although fortunately when Tim Booth was inundated by tweets saying no request asking for sitting on ones behind would bring children to tears, the band had no choice but to include the tune in tonight’s performance.

The Black Keys play Latitude Festival

The Black Keys – they’ve yet to have chart success on these shores. Their highest entry in the UK charts came with ‘Fever’ earlier this year when their recent single peaked at number 57 matching their 2012 release ‘Gold on the Ceiling’. Album wise the Americans haven’t done too badly thanks to the British public, their latest record ‘Turn Blue’ reached No. 2 although it’s their former LP ‘El Camino’ which will provide most of the tracks tonight as they round off this year’s Latitude festival.

Kanye West splits the crowd at Wireless

Twenty Four hours ago organisers of the Wireless festival announced their Saturday headliner Drake had cancelled their slot at the London festival. It was a dilemma which would take a miracle to solve, not even Christ himself could find a suitable replacement at such short notice (although he could have probably turned the watered down beer into...well, beer!) There was only one person who could save the event, the holy grail of rap, step forward ‘Yeezus’.

Metallica headline Glastonbury Festival

Before we use the Caps Lock key let’s rewind to a few months ago when Metallica were finally announced as the Saturday headliner for Glastonbury. The delay was due to the Californians booking at Sonisphere, a festival which is targeted towards fans worshipping heavy metal.

Red Hot Chilli Peppers play Isle of Wight Festival

The Saturday headliner for this years’ Isle of Wight festival remained inconspicuous for a few months. Biffy Clyro and Calvin Harris would round off Friday, Kings of Leon had the job off closing the event, but as for the act sandwiched between these heavyweights the slot remained a mystery.

One Direction open Radio 1 Big Weekend

The lead singer of one of the world’s biggest bands starts singing the opening lines to ‘Best Song Ever’. Unsurprisingly the crowd go wild, although there’s something unusual about this rendition, the guy belting out the first two lines is a 37 year-old, he’s playing piano and you are probably familiar with the name.

Kelis closes The Great Escape festival

The last time Kelis Rogers cooked up a mildly media frenzy she was promoting her sixth album, ‘Food’. That was earlier this year, today she’s serving up the main course which will round off The Great Escape, an urban festival which has seen thousands of music lovers trek from building to building around Central Brighton since 2006.
