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

Lauryn Hill

  • Critics choice

The former Fugee and acclaimed singer-songwriter makes her first London live appearances in over two years. Her comeback album – which will be her first since her classic 1998 record 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill' – was delayed last year after Hill was sentenced to prison for tax evasion, but now she's out and back on tour. Expect new tracks, a few old classics, and a typically erratic performance: she may regularly turn up on stage hours late, but when she's on form

Kate Bush: Photographs by Gered Mankowitz and Guido Harari

  • Free

These two photographers are cheekily bringing out new Bush books and putting on an exhibition to coincide with the ‘Before the Dawn’ shows. Big draws include Mankowitz’s famous ‘pink leotard’ shots and out-takes from his shoots for the ‘Lionheart’ and ‘The Kick Inside’ sleeves. Go along and play ‘Hounds of Love’ on your phone: it’ll almost be like Kate’s singing to you. Until you get kicked out of the gallery.

ITUNES FESTIVAL: Ed Sheeran + Foy Vance

  • Free

The hugely popular carrot-topped pop-folk maestro returns for a show at the iTunes Festival, continuing to mix up loop-pedalled acoustica and hip hop beats for a swooning, shrieking audience. His tearjerking single 'The A-Team' catapulted him into the mainstream, his chart-busting 2011 debut album '+' has kept him lodged there, and the follow-up – due this year and produced by Rick Rubin – should bring him right back up on top. Supporting is Foy Vance, a bluesy,

ITUNES FESTIVAL: Jessie J + James Bay

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Talent show judge, motormouth, songwriter and all-round vocal acrobat Jessica Cornish – aka Jessie J – arrives in London with a bang to perform her high-energy dance pop and soulful, electronic R&B as part of the iTunes Festival. She is, undeniably, a top performer with a huge pair of lungs and the confidence to match, and will no doubt be performing songs from second album 'Alive', released in October of last year. Supporting Double J is James Bay, a young, acoustic

ITUNES FESTIVAL: Placebo

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Two whole decades after they formed, Brian Molko and his glam-grunge-pop troupe are still churning out the tunes. They now have seven albums to pick from when they play live, and tend to go for fan favourites rather than indulging those who've just come along to hear the hits, but are still known to drop 'Nancy Boy' and 'Every You Every Me' when the fancy takes them. Tonight they perform as part of the iTunes Festival. To win free tickets, enter at itunes.com/festival.

The Libertines

  • Critics choice

After a reunion in Hyde Park earlier this year, Carl Barât and Pete Doherty's bunch of grungy indie roughnecks will be taking to the stage on three consecutive nights at Ally Pally. This is their first full-scale reunion since they broke up a decade ago, so it looks as though the well-publicised animosity between the band's members seems to have cooled – although it's kind of a strange time for them to get together again, with Barat's new band, The Jackals, just beginning to

ITUNES FESTIVAL: Ben Howard + Hozier

  • Free

The chirpy singer-songwriter who surprised everyone by bagging two trophies at last year's BRIT Awards steps up to headline a big show as part of the iTunes Festival. Expect acoustic treats from his debut LP 'Every Kingdom' and 2012 follow-up EP 'The Burgh Island', but also a fair few teasers from upcoming album 'I Forget Where We Are', which won't quite be out yet when tonight's show rolls around (the album is scheduled for release on October 20). Supporting is rising Dublin

ITUNES FESTIVAL: Kylie + MNEK

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Ms Minogue returns in all her ever-smiling, costume-changing, high-gloss pop glory, drawing on a hefty back catalogue that runs the gamut from the genuinely great ('Can't Get You Out of My Head') to the frankly rather grisly ('The Locomotion'), but chiefly promoting her poptastic new record 'Kiss Me Once'. Considering the enormodomes that she normally performs in these days, Kylie's show tonight at north London venue the Roundhouse – as part of the iTunes Festival –

ITUNES FESTIVAL: Lenny Kravitz + Wolf Alice

  • Free

You know what they say about Lenny Kravitz's career: it ain't over till it's over. To the haters, he's a ’90s relic, a mega-sized tub of pastiched cobblers in shockingly bad clobber. But there are also plenty of people who look on ol' Len as the living embodiment of freaked-out and loved-up sex 'n' roll, hence this pretty major iTunes Festival date more than two decades on from 'Are You Gonna Go My Way?'. In one of the weirder support turns of the year, awesome grunge-pop
