Vault Festival

This six-week arts festival returns to the vaults underneath Waterloo station this year with a tantalising line up of music, theatre, club nights and more. Heritage Arts Company provide a eclectic mix of performances, which include Filter Theatre's 'Macbeth', 'True Brits' by Vinay Patel and a host of nights from Nest Collective, who stage weekly free acoustic breakthrough acts. Over 500 events make up the bustling festival, which are given added edge by the atmospheric, sprawling

Nicki Minaj

  • Critics choice

It's been ages since Nicki last played a headline show in London, and in that time she's turned to acting (in 'The Other Woman'), become an 'American Idol' judge, launched a fragrance range (smell like Nicki!), and got into varying degrees of controversy for two videos featuring (respectively) her bum and some definitely Nazi-esque imagery. Now she's finally back in London to serve up her British 'barbz' with a triple helping of booty-quaking pop-rap. We've kind of missed her.

Jungle

  • Critics choice

London duo Jungle came from nowhere to become one of 2014’s biggest new music sensations, releasing a series of steamy, grooving, disco-edged neo-soul singles – with instantly viral videos featuring a six-year-old breakdancer, two members of the High Rollaz freestyle rollerskating team and a huge dance crew – and selling out a run of London gigs this year off the back of their self-titled, Mercury-nominated debut album. Their live sets are quite something too.

Sam Smith

Catapulted into the spotlight by some canny guest appearances – including Disclosure's 'Latch' and Naughty Boy's 'La La La' – young singer-songwriter Smith boasts a wonderfully smooth and delicate voice. Despite making his name with two dance-pop hits, his debut album 'In the Lonely Hour' is full of melancholy balladry, but that hasn't done him any harm: Sad Sam has become a massive star on both sides of the Atlantic, and currently sells out pretty much any gig he deigns to

The Nest Collective

  • Free

Mercury-nominated folk kingpin Sam Lee heads up this group of roots music enthusiasts, who are ‘curating’ a regular slot at this year’s Vault Festival. Every Wednesday and Sunday you’ll hear rising acoustic artists playing free showcases, and on February 12 and 26 there are late-night ceilidh parties (entry: £11.50) featuring the Ceilidh Liberation Front and Fitty Gomash.

Lionel Richie

  • Critics choice

Did someone say 'Hello'? The multi-million-selling ex-Commodore raids his hefty back catalogue, from 'Easy' to 'Dancing on the Ceiling'. Nobody does genteel loverman soul better than this. Want more?Lionel Richie interview: ‘I have a vicious, VICIOUS butt dance’

The War On Drugs

  • Critics choice

The cosmic, sprawling, euphoric rock outfit from Philly provide a glimpse into an alternate universe in which the young Bob Dylan fronted a shoegaze band. Hear tracks from their superb new album 'Lost in the Dream' in London tonight.

The Black Keys

  • Critics choice

There may only be two of them, but this duo from Ohio – Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney – have had no trouble filling increasingly larger venues on every visit to London with their down-dirty nu-blues, spiked with vintage soul, rock and hip hop. Here, playing from their latest album 'Turn Blue', they endeavour to conquer the mighty O2 arena for the third time.

Future Islands

  • Critics choice

It took a dad-dancing viral video to propel this agreeably odd Baltimore indie trio into the limelight, though they’d been crafting their melodic, fluid punk-funk and arty post-pop (complete with synths, impassioned vocals and the odd birdsong sample) for years before that ‘SNL’ appearance. Catch them live at their biggest UK dates yet, where charismatic frontman Samuel Herring will be belting out songs from their heart-tugging new album ‘Singles’, and hopefully busting

Caribou

  • Critics choice

It’s fair to say that musicians aren’t always reliable. Dan Snaith, however, has well and truly bucked that trend with his Caribou project, consistently producing lush, psychedelic rock and electronic alt pop that always sounds inviting and fresh. On record, Caribou’s pop odysseys are the solo work of multi-instrumentalist, DJ and producer Snaith, but for live shows he’s joined by his three regular band members, as is the case for this headline performance. They’ll no

Underworld

  • Critics choice

Romford's finest bring their viscerally engaging and always inventive post-techno to London, running through their 20-year-old (official) debut album 'Dubnobasswithmyheadman' from start to finish. That's over an hour of seminal electronica: bangin'.

Sinatra 100

Richard Shelton will perform as Frank Sinatra, in a series of concerts which will mark the 100th anniversary of the singer, actor and producer's birth, accompanied by the late American's own rhythm section, a big band, and performing alongside special guest performers.

The Who

  • Critics choice

Clearly long done with hoping they die before they get old, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are celebrating 50 years since the first gig by The Who by retiring gracefully. Just kidding: they're going on another massive arena tour, which stops off in London tonight for a set which (we're told) will feature 'hits and misses' – so the biggies alongside some more unexpected tunes, then.
