Jamie T, The War On Drugs, The Maccabees: Watch The 8 Best Performances From BBC 6Music Festival 2015

This past weekend saw the second annual BBC 6Music Festival take place in Tyneside, following its 2014 debut in Manchester. A host of brilliant acts – both homegrown and from across the pond – appeared, and we’ve selected some of the most exciting for your viewing pleasure. Kicking off festival season, the event bought with it Sleater-Kinney’s first UK show in over a decade, Hot Chip premiering new songs and one of The Maccabees’ first shows since announcing they’ve finished recording their new album.

So sit back and we’ll transport you to Newcastle and Gateshead to bring you footage of all the great performances you might have missed, from Royal Blood and Jamie T, to Interpol and The War On Drugs.
