Get ready for your ears to be given a right old drum and bass battering from one of the best D&B selectors in the game: Andy C, playing a marathon six-hour set on Halloween. He may not be willing to divulge his second name, but that's only because he's...

Azealia Banks

House music, Hip hop, Pop and rock

  • Critics' choice

At the tender age of 22 and with only one officially released EP to her name, Azealia Amanda Banks has become a festival-headlining rap sensation. That's down to three things: her knack for publicity (she's had prominent Twitter feuds with everyone from...

Azealia Banks

Banks

R&B, Pop, Electronica, Chart pop, Trip hop

  • Critics' choice

This soulful, downbeat LA singer's warm productions and romantic R&B vocals have made her a hot ticket – and got her onto the BBC's often self-fulfilling Sound of 2014 list – so she's probably a safer bet than most actual banks nowadays. This show follows...

Banks

Black Veil Brides

Metal

Costume-wearing hard rockers BVB look like Kiss's more flamboyant nephews, and sound like a middling Metallica tribute act.

Black Veil Brides

Blink 182

Punk and hardcore

Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker return to help thousands in their mid-twenties relive their pop-punk adolescence. Favourites such as 'All the Small Things', 'What's My Age Again?' and 'The Rock Show' should feature heavily at these Reading...

Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine

Indie rock, Alternative rock

Steve Lamacq must be weeping his eyes out: heavy ’80s indie rockers Jim Bob and Fruitbat have said that this show will be the laster Carter USM set ever. We're disinclined to believe them, but if you're a big fan it might not be worth taking the risk...

Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine

Childish Gambino

Hip hop, Pop and rock

  • Critics' choice

You may know him as Troy from the brilliant US comedy 'Community' or as a model, screenwriter and stand-up comedian, but when it comes to hip hop Donald Glover goes by Childish (a name he got from the Wu-Tang Name Generator). His lyrics, however, are...

Childish Gambino

Clean Bandit

Pop, House music, Electro, Garage, String ensembles, Electronica

  • Critics' choice

Is there anything Clean Bandit can't do? The electronic pop troupe from Cambridge broke through spectacularly in January with 'Rather Be' – the most successful single of the year, and the first to stay at Number One for four weeks since 2011. It's a prime...

The Hives

Pop, Indie rock, Punk and hardcore, Alternative rock

  • Critics' choice

Howlin' Pelle Almqvist and his gang of cartoon Swedish punks play from their back catalogue of uber-stylish, two-and-a-half minute garage-pop classics: 'Main Offender', 'Walk Idiot Walk', 'Hate to Say I Told You So' and beyond.

i moved here from aus mid 98 and my first gig was the beastie boys here. 16 years later it's still my favourite venue. every band should play here (and invite me) imo. 

shaktibhakti

Ive seen many bands here over the years! A friend of mine also hired the foyer/front for her club house parties in the early 90s! Always find/see people i know here too. Probably the best largest venue before it gets less intimate! I first came here when it was the stockwell odeon for Trex in 70s..good views due to floor slopes down toward stage/front.

Vlad Cool

Nice atmosphere, good size venue and incredible views from the sloped floor, never missed a second! looks cool from outside, where I had a nice chat with a homeless guy and then gave him some spare change to help him out with his various addictions.
