With several hits under their collective belts, the grunge rockers known as the Foo Fighters have been long established in the world of rock. Their career has seen them go from being 'the band with the guy who used to be in Nirvana' to being one of the first names on the tongue of anyone making a list of the most prolific and influential bands in rock music today, with a score of memorable songs and legendary performances to their name.

Five indie pop kids from Leeds who in less than two years went from self-financing their first single to getting signed by Universal and becoming the darlings of the British music press. The infectious enthusiasm of their music and the unique viewpoint of their lyrics has seen them compared to Franz Ferdinand, Blur, The Clash, and Madness, but their passionately dedicated fans know that this band are true originals.
Kaiser Chiefs tour dates
As her debut album, Lights, made so thrillingly clear, Ellie Goulding uses her voice as a texture in much the same way that a skilled instrumentalist would. It is a sound – in Ellie's case, an utterly distinctive and unforgettable one – that can play as important a role in her songs as any other musical detail.
The BRIT-winning singer/songwriter released Lights in 2010 and followed it up with Halcyon in 2012. Both albums peaked at number one in the UK album chart and went double-platinum. Halcyon was re-released with ten additional tracks as Halcyon Days in 2013. These included How Long Will I Love You?, which became the BBC Children in Need single, and her first number one single, Burn, which has since racked up nearly 160 million views on YouTube.

Former guitarist and singer/songwriter for Whiskeytown, Ryan Adams has revealed a closet folkie-side in his solo material, although he still writes as he performs: with his heart on his sleeve, and punk in his spirit.

Their debut single Can We Dance has clocked up over 10 million YouTube views, and second single Wild Heart has almost 4 million and their channel has already tipped 34.5 million total views.

Harley Alexander-Sule and Jordan Stephens are two of the most exciting young talents to emerge in 2011. Their debut single 'Down With The Trumpets' sold over 250,000 copies and hung around in the Top 10 for a month, and the duo have already been nominated for 3 MOBO Awards. Their debut album is a mixture of pop and hip hop incorporating the fun elements of the old school hip-hop era circa 1988-92.
Rizzle Kicks tour dates
James Blunt is one of the UK's most successful singer-songwriters of recent years. His debut album, Back To Bedlam, sold over 11 million copies and his hit single, You're Beautiful, was number one in multiple countries whilst winning an Ivor Novello for airplay and receiving three Grammy nominations. Blunt has gone on to release another multi-million selling album, All The Lost Souls, and has had major hits with Goodbye My Lover and 1973.
