Your guide to the year ahead

WELL DONE GUYS, you made it! Pat yourselves on the back, take a big swig of some exceptionally strong tea and send a congratulatory message to your favourite WhatsApp group- the end of 2016 is in sight. It was a year blighted by the loss of heroes and political upheaval, but through all the turmoil, there was always hope- hope for a better 2017.

This final NME of the year is here to introduce you to the artists, films, TV shows and life tips that will make the next 12 months brilliant, including new music from Eminem, Stormzy, Wolf Alice and Liam Gallagher, amazing cinema in the form of Trainspotting 2 and Wonder Woman, epic TV such as A Series Of Unfortunate Events and the second series of Stranger Things, and brilliant new bands like Cabbage and The Big Moon.

As well as all that, we’ve got some NME heroes- Craig David included- to offer up some advice on how to smash 2017. Don’t just have a happy new year – have an outstanding one.
