It's around a decade since we were asked to be part of the BBC's esteemed Sound Of poll, promoting emerging new acts with a significant chance of commercial success. Back then, we put forward The Joy Formidable, The Drums, and Two Door Cinema Club for the 2010 poll, and we're pretty happy with how they've done subsequently. Indeed, The Joy Formidable are now celebrating ten years of their debut EP, 'A Balloon Called Moaning' with a special limited edition double album version.

Godiva Festival (5-7 July 2019, Coventry) // Words: Saam Das


Headlined by The Levellers, Feeder, and Busted, Coventry's popular music festival Godiva courted controversy this year by increasing the cost of entry. To the princely sum of £2 a day. It didn't stop over 75,000 people attending the formerly free-of-charge extravaganza in the UK's 2021 City Of Culture. And we were one of the many, many happy customers.

Our sporadic and loosely themed Pop Music Column makes a triumphant return! Possibly. This edition features pop icon Carly Rae Jepsen teaming up with producer Gryffin, relative newcomer Charlotte Lawrence, Taylor Swift and Twenty One Pilots - turns out there aren't even twenty one of them, only two. And they're probably not even pilots!

With half of the year well and truly outthaway, to semi-quote Australian noughties indie giants The Vines, we've decided to throw the spotlight on some of the best shows on TV in 2019 thus far. Some caveats to begin with, we haven't seen the monstrously acclaimed 'Chernobyl' nor caught up with the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' but nonetheless, we do have ten bits of programming for you to catch up on.

Citadel Festival (14 July 2019, London) // Words: Saam Das


14th July 2019. A notable day in the calendar. The F1 British Grand Prix. England-New Zealand in the Cricket World Cup final. Tennis legend Roger Federer versus the behemoth Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final. But perhaps best of all, the return of Citadel Festival to Gunnersbury Park in West London. Headlined by Catfish & The Bottlemen, we've put together a preview of Citadel 2019.

Somewhat unexpectedly, a Kate Nash documentary recently dropped on BBC iPlayer. Kate Nash: Underestimate The Girl joins the likes of must-see Oscar-nominated doc 'Minding The Gap' as part of 2019's BBC Storyville brand. A chronicle of Kate Nash, and not just Kate Nash: The Popstar, or Kate Nash: The Rockstar, as she prefers. Or perhaps even now, having starred in Netflix's excellent 'GLOW' series, Kate Nash: The Actress.
