Nicki Minaj tour dates
Example's songs deal with living and growing up as a wannabe rapper in London whilst also criticising todays celebrity culture and white people who think that they can rap. Example's lyrics are a new take on the issues that are faced in contemporary society with a humorous and imaginative twist and the songs often feature samples in a similar way to The Streets and Eminem.
Example tour dates
U.S. hip hop star who cites Camp Lo, The Notorious B.I.G. and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony amongst his influences.
Wiz Khalifa tour dates
One of the UK's best freestylers/rappers, Professor Green (real name Stephen Manderson) made a name for himself as a battle MC from Hackney, East London, winning the prestigious freestyle night 'Jump-Off' twice in a row, which brought him to the attention of talent scouts and The Streets band member Mike Skinner. Littering his lyrics with wry pop culture references, a sharp sense of humour and honesty, Professor Green has produced and collaborated with a host of musicians, including Lily Allen.
Professor Green tour dates
Nero have become a big name in both the Drum and Bass and Dubstep scenes, often fusing both styles of music in their DJ sets. They started with DnB, joining DJ SS's Formation Records in the Summer of 2004. Since then Dan and Joe's tracks have caused quite a stir, with the recent success of their singles ‘Me and You’, ‘Act Like You Know’ and ‘Promises’ demonstrating what an exciting couple of years the band has had.
Nero tour dates
N-Dubz singer and X Factor judge, Tulisa has also launched a solo career. With a number of massive hit singles and albums under her belt as part of the UK urban trio, she's already experienced massive success, and with her new status as the nation's sweetheart, her solo career looks set to be even bigger.
Tulisa tour dates
British-Albanian mezzo-soprano r'n'b queen Rita Ora has been around for a while, but came to full prominence in 2012 when she provided the vocals for DJ Fresh's 'Hot Right Now', which topped the UK singles chart in February. Rita followed this smashing into the charts with her own No.1 singles 'R.I.P' and 'How We Do (Party)', making her the only artist to have three No.1 singles in a row in 2012. The release of her debut album 'ORA' rounded off her incredible run also claiming the No.1 spot. 2012 saw her become one of the most exciting new artists to break through.
Rita Ora tour dates
Great hip hop outfit making the kind of stuff that De La Soul, Jurassic 5 and Black Eyed Peas would be proud of. They're old skool, they're slick and they're funky as hell.
Hilltop Hoods tour dates
It is not very often you come across an act that is so unique sounding yet, at the same time, instantly recognisable. An act that can traverse genres with such skill and dexterity like they have been doing it for years; fusing the current desire for wild electronic productions and a pop sensibility that everyone enjoys.
AlunaGeorge tour dates
