Dizzee Rascal

Victoria Park, London; July 15-18

A very canny little event that’s been growing and growing over the past few years, balancing the populist mash-fest that Dizzee Rascal’s set will surely be with the queen of mean Grace Jones and effete lords Roxy Music means there really will be something for everything. Want refined, glamourous pop? Hercules & Love Affair and Hurts will ensure a solid presence of shoulder pads. A bit of indie familiarity to get drunk to? Hello, The Maccabees and Mystery Jets. Need some grindcore? Paloma Faith’s playing a Napalm Death covers set [Note: one of these is a lie].
