P!NK is a rare commodity in the music business; a pop singer who has credibility within the rock world and a rock singer who's achieved the status of a pop star. With worldwide hits such as Get The Party Started, Just Like A Pill and Stupid Girls under her belt, Pink is one of the world's most successful female stars to date.
P!NK tour dates
Electro pop duo who have been making waves up and down the country ever since their formation in 2006. Having started out playing private house parties in their native Manchester, Jules De Martino and Katie White's shows soon became the hottest tickets on the planet.
The Ting Tings tour dates
Hailing from Australia, but now based in the UK, the band released their debut album, Conditions, in 2009. Featuring the singles Science of Fear, Fader, Love Lost and Sweet Disposition – the latter of which spent more than six months in the UK singles chart – the album was one of the breakthrough successes of the year and has now been certified Gold two-times over in the UK, selling over 800,000 copies worldwide. Now a five-piece, the band's line-up consists of Dougy Mandagi, Jonathon Aherne, Toby Dundas, Lorenzo Sillitto and Joseph Greer.
The Temper Trap tour dates
This Arkansas trio have weapons of mass destruction in their no high-hat style drumming, innovative guitar tuning and charming vocals. All of these create a bluesy nu-wave garage rock sound.
Gossip tour dates
A truly defiant figure in the world of music, Plan B’s diverse creativity is inexhaustible. His raw, incendiary debut album, Who Needs Actions When You Got Words broke new ground for UK hip hop in 2006, a loud, proud, obscenity-riddled scream of anger and pride from the streets of East London.
But a part of Ben always stayed faithful to the soul he’d first heard as a child, and his sophomore album The Defamation Of Strickland Banks saw him marry the two together with astounding success, achieving quadruple-platinum status, hitting the #1 album spot and selling over 1.4 million copies in the UK alone, plus seeing him win both a BRIT and three Ivor Novello’s.
His 2012 directorial debut (and accompanying album) iLL Manors saw him smashing boundaries with his creative style of overlapping stories and interweaving rap-narrative, boldly addressing socio-political issues with his often brutal cultural commentary, seeing Ben nominated for his fifth BRIT Award, being nominated for his first Mercury Music prize, and once again hitting #1 in the UK album chart.
Plan B tour dates
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins with his side project.
Taylor Hawkins and The Coattail Riders tour dates
With their 2002 single 'The Girl All The Bad Guys Want', Texas' reigning punk cowboys hit the big time, after spending the best part of seven years gigging non-stop in their home state. Frontman Jaret's wicked sense of humour, combined with their tongue-in-cheek covers of Bryan Adams, Shaggy and even Nelly, ensure BFS's live performances stand out from the rest of the nu-punk crowd.
Bowling For Soup tour dates
Purveyors of disco/ funk and full-throttle live shows, this Portland, Oregon band are set to shake up the UK music scene this year in a big way.
Hockey tour dates
Sixteen-year-old Daisy Coburn makes bubblegum punk - impatient, impudent teen pop about friendship and families and fancying boys.
Daisy Dares You tour dates
Cockney vocalist Neon Hitch makes edgy dance-pop with an arty flair that hints at her Bohemian upbringing. Raised in a family of circus performers, Hitch had performed as a trapeze artist and fire swinger all over Europe by the time she was in her teens.
After leaving home at age 15, Hitch travelled before settling in London to focus on her music career, but now currently resides in New York. She cites a wide array of influences from hip-hop artists, to rock bands, electro-pop music, and world sounds.
Neon Hitch tour dates
Born in Sweden and raised in London, Bluey is a captivating, charismatic act whose songwriting encapsulates a throwback feel with a futuristic twist. Retaining a distinct British personality, there are also echoes of Prince, Otis Redding, The Jackson 5, Cee-Lo Green and Bruno Mars in Bluey's sonic spectrum.
Bluey Robinson tour dates
Popjustice called them 'the best band in the world ever' - and this 6 piece will more then live up to the hype. Already firm favourites on the European festival circuit, their debut album 'Alphabeat' has gone platinum in their native Denmark. A winning combo of infectious feel good pop and memorably energetic live performances.
Alphabeat tour dates
Electro-pop project I Blame Coco is essentially the voice of young actress and model Coco Sumner, daughter of Sting. Despite the family connection, musically Coco is a million miles away from her father, instead delivering pulsating slick synth electro tuneage. Rather than The Police, her material has more in common with the likes of Ladytron, Lady Gaga and Robyn, who coincidentally appears as a guest vocalist on the debut single 'Caesar'. I Blame Coco's debut album 'The Constant' looks set to make Coco an electro-pop star in her own right.
I Blame Coco tour dates
Emotional and very distinctive style of songwriting. With one of the strongest and most individual voices in an over-crowded sing/songwriter scene its not hard to see why he tipped for big things.
Alan Pownall tour dates
