Elton John and Mumford And Sons are leading the line-up.
Outside Lands organisers have finally unveiled the spectacular 2015 line-up for their eighth year, featuring headliners Elton John and Mumford And Sons. The event is set to bring its usual combination of music and munchies to San Francisco this August.
Joining Elton and Mumford are a range of equally exciting acts, both of the veteran and the up-and-coming variety. Man of the moment Sam Smith - whose already bagged a total of six awards this year, including four Grammys - will bring his pop genius to the stage, alongside The Black Keys who released their first chart-topping album last year, and Kendrick Lamar whose highly anticipated third album 'To Pimp A Butterfly' sailed to number one in both the US and the UK last week.
New additions add to the excitement of this already highly anticipated Nottingham festival.
No Tomorrow Festival 2015 welcomes a handful of further additions to their already exciting line-up; Milky Chance, Gorgon City and Nick Mulvey are the latest to join the ever-growing bill for Nottingham's most unmissable weekend of the Summer.
They will be joining with the likes of already announced artists James Bay, John Newman, Jessie Ware and MNEK for the second year of No Tomorrow Festival, which is taking place at Nottingham's Wollaton Park from June 6th to 7th. Other new announcements were SOAK, Karen Harding, JP Cooper, Zak Abel, My Nu Leng, Justin Martin and Grades.
Which are the best venues to visit this SXSW?
SXSW 2015 is set to take over Austin, Texas for yet another spectacular event, spanning numerous venues with countless showcases and hundreds of artists. We may be a few weeks away yet, but here's a little taster of some of the best places to be this year.
First up, the Parish is hosting some seminal shows all week, so this should definitely be at the top of your schedule. Wednesday, March 18th sees alt rock Londoners Wolf Alice on the bill, impressing with material from their EP releases; though we are yet to see an album release from these four. Equally, LA newcomers BØRNS are not to be missed, nor are San Diego indie favourites Delta Spirit. Thursday sees The Vaccines promote their upcoming album 'English Graffiti', alongside Palma Violets with 'Danger In The Club', while New York's Lolawolf brings their brand of sensational disco pop to the scene. Friday will be headlined by the Jarman brothers' band The Cribs, and Saturday will see appropriate surf-rock from Florida four-piece Surfer Blood.
Borns will perform at the Parish on Wednesday, March 18th 2015

Beginning their career as a school jazz duo, Clemens and Phillipp have over the years evolved in such a way as to create the ever present pillow-beat, dance-pop vibes on 'Sadnecessary'. Although this 11 track album follows a strict brief in terms of form and rhythm, it becomes loose and malleable in parts, shining through the talent in these two young German lads.
Show me a two-piece dance-pop set up with such melancholic power as Milky Chance and I will show you a 'Stolen Dance' which, although the final track on the album, is worth noting first and foremost as one of 2014's summer anthems. Secondly, it's the mascot for Milky Chance's extremely individual sound and a great starter for anyone new to their world.
Due to the wholly minimal spectrum of rhythm on 'Sadnecessary', you may find yourself thinking you've got this thing on repeat. This pillow-beat, um-cha beat Milky Chance utilises is individualistic, though does becomes tedious in parts. That's not to suggest lack of creativity; Clemens and Phillipp have created in the depths of test tubes and Bunsen burners a mellow, crash tumble ambience. Undeniable chill-out dance-pop at its best.

It came, It went, It conquered as per. Leeds Festival 2014 was a real pinnacle for this year's UK live music, cramming it's masses into the colossus fields of Bramham Park, this year's Leeds Festival was a true menace of a machine. From strolling the sights and stalls of the relatively tame arena, to hiking through the foothills of Red camp and afar, the beast of Leeds Festival was out in full glamour this year. Not only for the sheer size and scale of the glorified playground, nor for the big bad names it captured upon its stages, but purely the immense and sometimes overwhelming atmosphere of Leeds Festival is what attracts the crowds in their droves - (Each and EVERY year).
This year's line-up, though transparent in parts, boasted an array of big names and must sees. From Gerrard Way's premier solo show, right the way through to Macklemore's fur coat - teenage girl-screaming onstage antics. All considered, It is fair to say Leeds festival caters to the masses, though in doing so, often leaving the fringes of those masses at somewhat of a loose-end. Fear no-more, as this year with 10 arena stages and a dozen campsite venues, attendants waved farewell to mud-mooching moments of waiting around and embarked on the northern event of the year. With Oxfam blazers, slush puppy pleasantries and a number of near 24-hour rave spots all been thrown around, It was hard to find even a moment for the annual carbon monoxide poisoning - plastic bag burning ritual around the camp fire.
Without further ado, we present to you this year's top live sets and why they really made this year what it was.

Here we go, here we go! Leeds Festival 2014, yet only half of us have scored a return ticket from the headaches and hangovers of last year's epic line-up. Each and every year, thousands of people across the social spectrum and across the UK flock to the fields of Leeds for what they know is THE music event of the year. Of course, catering to the masses is no easy feat but with ten stages all rigged up, this machine, emblem of the north, once again raises its flags way up heavens bound.Moving from Temple Newsam a few years back now, LF has really made itself at home within the colossal 1,235 acre grounds of Bramham park. Returning bands themselves (or the newcomers for that matter), facing glorious deja-vu on approach to the site if not already attended as rowdy teens, are in for a real good show.
With the festival being such an icon and in itself evolving in sheer mass and motor each year, it's understandably hard to really get a good hold-down on the lineup. With time clashes, mud, bar queues and a serious lack of phone battery, it's only fair we deal out a helping hand of this year's 'Not To Be Missed' sets to make festival life a little easier.
In no preferential order at all.
