Elefest

  • Critics choice

Celebrate the past, present and future of Elephant & Castle with the return of this three-day festival of music, film, discussion and grub taking place at various local venues. StockMKT will set up shop in Hotel Elephant once again, providing a scrummy selection of food and drink alongside Electric Pedals' bike-powered cinema and live acts. There will be tours of the E&C subway murals, a children's slapstick comedy workshop in honour of E&C's late great former resident Charlie

Goat

  • Critics choice

Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, Goat create ace voodoo psychedelia. As well as chanting over bongos and widdly, Middle Eastern-influenced riffs smothered in reverb, they dress in colourful masks and provide one hell of an energetic, intense live experience. At this Roundhouse show they'll be supported by space-rock electronicists The Lay Llamas and fellow Swedish trippers Les Big Byrd – two acts well worth turning up early for.

The Horrors

  • Critics choice

If you still think of The Horrors as the fright-wigged, black-clad and pretzel-thin garage-punks of 2007, where have you been? The London five-piece reinvented themselves with the psychedelic post-punk-meets-shoegaze of their second album 'Primary Colours', took a huge leap into epic soundscapes with the follow-up 'Skying', and have now unleashed their fourth album 'Luminous', which confirms them as one of the UK's best young bands. Don't miss them as they return to the stage,

Duke Dumont

  • Critics choice

Back in 2013, just before Daft Punk went pop with ‘Get Lucky’, a less well-known producer with a similarly dancey past hit the jackpot with ‘Need U (100%)’ – a soulful house banger that brought much-needed credibility to the top of the charts. It marked a major shift for Adam Dyment – aka the Duke – who followed it up earlier this year with a second consecutive Number One, ‘I Got U’. Next step: a bells-and-whistles live show. Bangin'.

SBTRKT

  • Critics choice

Daft Punk, Slipknot, MF Doom: the music industry has plenty of iconic masks, but one of the best belongs to London producer Aaron Jerome, aka SBTRKT. It’s not just facewear that marks out this all-capped crusader. After a stellar debut in 2011, his new album ‘Wonder Where We Land’ is out in September and features the likes of Jessie Ware, Warpaint and (on the monstrously funky single ‘New Dorp, New York’) Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, plus long-term vocalist Sampha.

Karen O

  • Critics choice

One of indie's most iconic frontwomen is taking a holiday from her main job shrieking for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, to release her solo debut 'Crush Songs'. She previews the album at these brilliantly intimate London shows, and might drop a few YYYs tracks into the set list too if you're good.

The Jim Jones Revue

  • Critics choice

The squalling, greasy, guitar-and-piano-driven blues-rockers bid farewell with one last sweatily enthusiastic show. You'll miss them when they're gone, so grab this chance to experience their swaggering, snake-hipped rock propulsion and tonsil-tearing yowls.

Pharrell Williams

  • Critics choice

Eighteen months since he rebooted his career with a Vaseline-smooth vocal on Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky', and almost a year since he followed through with the smash hit follow-up 'Happy', age-defying R&B dude Pharrell finally rolls into London for a long-awaited solo show. His recent live sets have set songs from his latest album 'GIRL' alongside material from throughout an incredible 15-year career as a singer and producer: he's scored hits with Snoop Dogg, Robin Thicke, NERD,

FKA Twigs

  • Critics choice

When considering London singer-songwriter FKA Twigs (real name: Tahliah Barnett), one word immediately comes to mind: spellbinding. Whether it’s her creeping, sensual songs, the subtly discomfiting visuals accompanying them, or the languid, undulating onstage motion of the doe-eyed artist (a trained dancer) one thing is certain: it’s very difficult to break the trance. Her first EP surfaced in 2012, self-released and with each of its four tracks boasting a simple but

The Besnard Lakes

  • Critics choice

Bringing their new album ‘Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO’ to London, the critically acclaimed Lakes were originally a husband-and-wife duo. They’ve since taken on two extra members to craft their beautiful but often dark and disturbing mix of Cocteau Twins, Pink Floyd and My Bloody Valentine.
