Camden Rocks

The Camden Crawl is long gone (RIP) but there’s still a festival where you can catch loads of bands turning it up to 11 across north London’s sticky-floored rock ’n’ roll wonderland. Camden Rocks is a newish hard rock and metal festival which brings more than 200 bands (a mix of big names and underground talent) to 25 venues around NW1. This year’s line-up includes The Damned, Orange Goblin and Ruts DC.

Agnes Obel

Recommended

The Danish singer-songwriter supports her second album, 'Aventine', with a set of haunting, intricately harmonised, piano-led songs. As well as the stripped-back sound of just Obel and her piano, there's also a sly, folkish twang to some songs and a hint of Joanna Newsom's exploratory melodies in others.

The Wedding Present

Recommended

David Gedge's punky indie pop survivors return to the stage with their scratchy guitars and brilliant, poignant, cynical-romantic lyrics. Expect a whacking great helping of their hits, and the sight of grown men drunkenly weeping.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
5/10

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

Recommended

Freaky psychedelic rock wig-outs by the seven-piece band from Melbourne. With two drummers and three guitarists on stage, you know you’re in for something big and bombastic, and their five-album discography contains plenty of heady goodness. Tame Impala and Pond fans shouldn’t miss this.

British Summer Time: Phil Collins

You don't need to be a soft rock aficianado to adore Phil Collins' ability to crack out a winning tune. Big Philly will kick off  British Summer Time 2017 by firing through his canon of hits including 'Another Day In Paradise', 'Easy Lover', 'Against All Odds', 'A Groovy Kind of Love'. Just imagine the groundswell of emotion as 'In The Air Tonight' plays out across Hyde Park. Take a lighter.
