Jess Glynne Jess Glynne; 'Wow I didn't know she was a thing anymore' this was what my friend said to me after learning I was off to see her this evening. Well unless you've been under a rock the last couple of months she's back. Personally I would argue that she'd never gone anywhere, taking the de facto time off after her first album and record breaking six number ones (first for a British female solo artist) before releasing her upcoming second album. So far this year though she co-wrote Sigala and Paloma Faith's 'Lullaby', featured in Rudimental's 'These Days' (hitting UK number one) and Yungen's 'Mind On It', as well as releasing her own single 'I'll be there'. But it's been a while since we've seen her live, the first since she can remember and to paraphrase it's like 'starting anew'.

Frank Turner In a packed out Camden Roundhouse, just under 2,000 fans eagerly anticipated the grand entry of the greatest showman that is Frank Turner. And his entry is certainly epic as his band mate trips him over whilst running onto the stage, falling flat on his face. An extremely embarrassed Frank Turner curses and laughs at guitarist Ben Lloyd as he continues to start the show with the energetic and upbeat ‘1933’.

Arcadia Taking place within London’s iconic Olympic Park and designed to celebrate Arcadia’s tenth anniversary this two day, three staged festival offered an experience that can’t be found at any other. Arcadia has a trump card up its sleeve. Rather than sell itself on a long list of household names; the draw is in-fact something that you won’t be able to get at any other festival – a unique and attention grabbing stage that’s built to resemble a giant mechanized Spider that wouldn’t look out of place in the Terminator film franchise.

Carl Craig Synthesizer Ensemble So, "who's Carl Craig?" I hear you ask. Heralding from Detroit, Carl Craig is a music producer, considered one of the most influential names of the Detroit techno scene. "And the synthesizer ensemble? Explain that one". OK. This one is going to take some more explaining... First off there's an album; Versus, which Carl Craig did in collaboration with Les Siècles Orchestra; a French orchestra and classical pianist Francesco Tristano (although tonight Kelvin Sholar took the piano), the progeny of a concert in 2008, it had the intention of bringing club music to classic concert halls. It was this album that tonight's setlist was from.

Greta Van Fleet It’s not every day you get to go see a band boldly dubbed “The Future of Rock ‘n Roll”. That’s quite a heavy load to bear for a foursome from Frankenmuth, Michigan, that are all under 21! Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to see Greta Van Fleet on Wednesday evening as they packed out the O2 Islington to over-capacity. The band has an immense hype build around them at the moment and getting a ticket to one of the two London shows were a hot commodity. The band consists of three brothers, lead singer, Josh Kiszka; his twin brother, Jake Kiszka on guitar; younger brother, Sam on bass and then Danny Wagner behind the drums.
