Jul 2012 12

Londoners – we have been spoilt. Let’s admit it, we’ve had some heavy hitters and some huge festivals recently and I for one am becoming all too accustomed to sporting wellies in the middle of summer and being among 60,000 people. (I blame Wireless.) With the Olympics to look forward to this month and the city buzzing, let’s mix it up and support some top class talent. Be it Cold Specks or Jessie Ware at the open air venue of Somerset House, or Kwesachu or Lianne La Havas at Village Underground, check out something fresh this month.
