Let’s be honest, summer has never felt further away. We’re already longing for lengthy hazy days, beer garden chilling and more importantly, dancing in a sun drenched field somewhere with hands in the air, spaced out to some fucking fantastic live music. It’s never too early to start thinking FESTIVALS. With the vast array of field friendly festivities being announced left right and centre, all with the promise to cater to everyone’s tastes, it’s a bit overwhelming to know where to start spending your hard-earned winter money buying tickets....

TALA Inspired by her cultural upbringing, London based singer TALA, creates music from a global perspective offering a refreshing approach to the music scene. Only two public tracks available at the moment but already it’s enough to create excitement surrounding TALA and her full EP. For now, listen on repeat to her boldly-named ‘Serbia’ and thumping, tribal yet electronically modern beats in ‘The Duchess’ to get you through. Also check out her boundary pushing and evocative accompanying video for ‘Serbia’ which dropped just this week. Watch closely, we’re expecting...

While a two month long festival in London doesn’t sound like something that could slip under your radar, you may be surprised. Since launching in 2001 photomonth has marked each October and November by celebrating contemporary photography and emerging photographers through a programme of exhibitions, talks, workshops and events, but at the rate that these pop ups pop up and pop down you’ll need to be in your toes if you want to catch any of the action. Now well into the first month of this East London based...

Support the music, get purchasing, and listening to some dreamy records as the nights are growing that little bit colder. 1// Johnny Marr - Playland He took just eight months to go solo after The Smiths dissolution, back in 1988, and since has placed his six string talents to bands The Pet Shop Boys, Talking Heads and The Cribs, to name just a few.

Germany’s second largest city, Hamburg played host to the 8th annual edition of MS DOCKVILLE music and arts festival, which took place last weekend in the trendy and up and coming district, Wilhelmsburg. The eclectic line-up included MØ, Warpaint, Die Antwoord and many more. We were pretty stoked to be attending this festival, especially as it was hosting some of our favourite international acts, from Canadian Hiphop producer Kaytranada, to Australian Electronic musician Chet Faker.

While Boardmasters is advertised as a music and surfing festival, it is entirely possible to enjoy the weekend with no knowledge or interest in the latter. The main site at Watergate Bay is absolutely fantastic. Three of the five stages are perched, a little precariously, on the cliff edge. Away from the crowds of the Main Stage and the semi-claustrophobia of the Unleashed tent are the smaller View and Point stages (see what they did there?). The former offers acoustic bands, while the latter showcases DJs playing beats...

When The Agenda team were invited by New Balance to come and party in the mud at Kendal Calling this weekend, we didn’t exactly think twice. Not a festival we had heard a lot about, but after a bit of line-up checking and weather forecast planning, the wellies were packed as we hopped on a train up to Penrith, Cumbria. We were off to experience the festival hailed as ‘the next Glastonbury’. Boasting acts such as De La Soul, 2manydjs, Suede and Miles Kane the 5 inches of...

Since 2008, Eastern Electrics has been serving house-heads with a weekend sound tracked by the best DJs in the genre. This year, Eastern Electrics usual weekend long party was downsized to a one-day spectacular and attendees were whisked to the leafy London suburb of Hatfield. The festival was situated in the picturesque Hatfield House, the jewel of this town; a beautiful stately home and verdant grounds almost too peaceful to host 10, 000 revellers. Almost. On arrival, the site was considerably full and its inhabitants’ blood streams tainted with...

Last weekend, Team-Agenda flew out to Iceland’s capital city Reykjavik, to attend the very first edition of Secret Solstice Music Festival. All we knew in advance is that there’d be over 150 acts, 72-hours of sunlight, we’d be camping for the very first time in our lives and that it was going to be fucking cold. Sound like an unreal experience? To break it down, attending Secret Solstice Festival in Icleand is like having sex on MDMA for the first time. It’s crazy, mind dazzling, euphoric, and full...

If you’re stuck for ideas, why not test the waters with five of our favourite producers right now…   RYAN HEMSWORTH Part of Ryan Hemsworth’s charm is that his music is slightly rough around the edges; his debut solo EP, Guilt Trips, full of catchy hooks and woozy beats, offers a slew of different genres but it is far...

  FKA Twigs FKA Twigs’s popularity has grown steadily but surely since the release of her first EP in 2012 making her both a music and fashion favourite. Alongside her ethereal voice and experimental sounds, she accompanies her songs with powerful and provoking visuals. Her depth as an artist is shown through the clear consideration and importance of visuals to coincide with her music, creating well rounded works of art. With her unusual name, intimately stunning visuals and stand out vocals, FKA Twigs becomes our first woman to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OydK91JjFOw Say Lou...

If you're reading this and seriously planning to attend a music festival this summer then take note, like right now. Go fetch your diary and a pen and jot down these all important dates, (actually, go grab your visa-debit while your at it), and also make a mental note that acquiring festival tickets these days is hard labour. Its competitive out there and scoring the best tickets it involves waking up super early on a Saturday morning most likely with a ridiculous hangover, sitting in front of your computer...

There's always a new surge of beat-makers ready to make their respective mark in the music game, rising up from the realms of SoundCloud and alikes. Their faces aren’t always seen or recognised but the new-breed-of-innovative-fresh producers deserve as much credit as the music artists they cover. Their beats cover it all, from jakin-house-club bangers, to woozy hip hop-inspired aesthetics. Guys like Cyril Hahn and Clams Casino are already stars, with Hahn’s music spotlighted everywhere from Vogue.com to underground club venues in East London, processing commercial pop-radio R&B into resonant...
