George Ezra

Another peak for the Bristolian singer-songwriter: he's announced a massive Brixton show to top off his meteoric year. Cradling his acoustic guitar like a lifeline while he sings his plaintive laments, Ezra is also blessed by top cheekbones and great taste in chunky knitwear. Even bigger things could still be in store. Read more:What's the deal with George Ezra?

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 Charlatans

  • Critics choice

Tim Burgess and his baggy Britpop brigade wheel out the old organ-heavy favourites – 'North Country Boy', 'The Only One I Know' and the rest – alongside new material and deeper cuts. One extra reason to head to this Camden gig: a support set of austere electronica by superb trio Factory Floor.

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.

Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie and The Advent of Punk

  • Free

To mark Blondie's 40th anniversary, Somerset House present this mega show of previously unpublished photographs by Chris Stein, co-founder of the band. As well as featuring images of the chart-topping group in their early days and backstage on tour, Stein has selected other favourites from his archive including sultry snaps of David Bowie, The Ramones, Andy Warhol and other big names from the glittering, new wave world.

Alt-J

  • Critics choice

The symbol-named, Mercury-winning trio from Leeds ply their reverb-smothered, off-kilter indie that echoes Yeasayer and Jeff Buckley. Some find it utterly enchanting, others favour the term 'snoozefest', but whichever side of that fence you're on it's hard to deny they're a pretty big deal nowadays – as proved by these huge gigs, at which they'll perform songs from their new album 'This Is All Yours'.

Slipknot + Korn

  • Critics choice

Iowa's masked marauders Slipknot headline a nu-metal double-bill that'll be packed to the rafters with headbanging teens and ’90s/’00s nostalgics alike. They're supported by Korn, as angsty and dirty-minded as ever they were in the glory days of 'Freak on a Leash'. Dig out that crusty old hoodie and join the mayhem – it'll be quite a show.

Hozier

  • Critics choice

Young and brooding Dublin singer Andrew Hozier-Byrne – who's rapidly rising and starting to sell out venues astonishingly quickly – juggles folk, soul and blues.

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

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

  • Critics choice

With Oasis now a distant memory, Gallagher senior has well and truly taken flight with his High Flying Birds. As you might expect, there are lots of ’60s-leaning, jangly pop and psychedelia-inspired moments to enjoy and sing along to, but with his sky-high avian bandmates Gallagher’s voice – literally and in songwriting terms – is bolder and more direct than ever. With the announcement of a second HFB album, following on from their self-titled, UK chart-topping debut in

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

Queen/Adam Lambert

  • Critics choice

Yep, that Queen: the classic rock act with the iconic, irreplaceable, long-dead frontman. Freddie Mercury's continued absence from this world hasn't stopped Brian May and Roger Taylor from reuniting Wayne Campbell's favourite car karaoke band. Paul Rodgers has played the part of Mercury in the past; and now, for the second major tour, 'American Idol' runner-up Adam Lambert steps in to belt out 'Don't Stop Me Now'. Eccentric outfits and outlandish shenanigans accompany the

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.
