With the inaugural Citadel Festival, set to take place at Victoria Park, London on Sunday 19th July, on the horizon we caught up with Citadel's artist booker John Epsom to find out some of his choice picks ahead of the festival.
Nick Mulvey - Fever To The Form
We're delighted Nick (pictured above) is headlining the Communion stage - he's one of the brightest new talents to emerge from these shores and is a joy to watch live.
Neneh Cherry - Across The Water
Neneh is one-of-a-kind. Her critically-acclaimed album will sound amazing on the Soundcrash stage, especially when backed by electronic duo Rocketnumbernine.
Leon Bridges - Better Man
This musician from Texas has the most soulful voice we have heard in years. 2015 is going to be his year.
Anna Calvi - Suddenly
Her talent is immeasurable and we're counting down the days til her next album. Taking to the stage with The Heritage Orchestra, her set at Citadel is going to be very special indeed.
Ben Howard - I Forget Where We Were
What can we say? Ben is the ultimate headliner. Watching his career go stratospheric over the past couple of years has been remarkable, and it's completely deserved.
Honeyblood - Biro
This Glaswegian duo have a minimal set-up but their output is full of fire. Guitarist and vocalist Stina Tweeddale's stunning voice is perfectly set off by drummer Shona McVicar's tight but explosive percussion.
Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 - Many Things
Seun Kuti has done a fine job of taking over the legendary Egypt 80 band from his late father, Fela. Expect danceable beats, powerful lyrics and masses of personality.
