More London Free Festival

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Twelve years in and the More London Free Festival is again bringing an impressive line-up of events and performances to the concrete amphitheatre below the Mayor's leaning glass blob of an office on the South Bank. For 2014 the events are divided into five cultural categories, and the festival kicks off with a four-day street party (June 4-8) of Latin and Caribbean food and fun. Free Fringe runs from June 4-20 and features lighthearted shows from Pantaloons Theatre Company and

Walthamstow Garden Party

  • Critics choice

Is London’s festival summer tragically cursed? First Frankie Knuckles passed away before he could headline Found festival, and then in June – less than a month before he was due to take to the stage in E17 – soul titan Bobby Womack sadly died at the age of 70.Despite the unhappy absence of Mr Womack, it’s still worth venturing out to the end of the Victoria Line this weekend. Co-programmed by the Barbican Centre, WGP combines a varied music bill with lots more fun stuff

The Temper Trap

  • Critics choice

The Australian pop-rockers are back at last, playing a trio of tiny shows to preview their forthcoming new album. Their hugely radio-friendly style of ringing, anthemic choir-boy pop in a decidedly U2/Coldplay vein won the world over when they burst out of Melbourne in 2008, then moved into ’80s-style synth pop on album two. These London gigs should give a few lucky fans an early inkling where they're headed next.

Tyler The Creator

  • Critics choice

The lynchpin of LA's Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All skate-rap collective plays a solo show. Tyler Okonma is still only 22, but he's already made three albums of dark hip hop that veer between irreverent and downright terrifying. He's back in the UK to promote his latest record, 'Wolf' – which he's described as 'weird hippie music for people to get high to'.

Burt Bacharach

  • Critics choice

The greatest pop songwriter and arranger of all-time? Many would argue, but The Burtmeister – now in his mid-eighties – can certainly dip into an awesome grab-bag of romantic mini-operas. He wrote the music for 'Magic Moments', 'Baby It's You', 'Twenty Four Hours from Tulsa', 'Blue on Blue', 'Close to You', 'Walk On By' and 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself'… and that's just his output from a few years in the 1960s. Bacharach is bolstered by a full orchestra at
