Tuesday night will see rising stars Jessie J (winner of BBC Sound of 2011) and Ruff Diamondz supporting Tinchy Stryder (of ‘Take Me Back’ fame), while Wednesday will feature our 10 for 2011 poll winner Mona and Clare Maguire opening for drum and bass duo Chase and Status. And thanks to our mates at MTV, we have a pair each for both gigs to give away.

Then we’re making this super easy for you. Tell us why you deserve to win. The best two answers as chosen by us will get them. Easy peasy, yes? This competition is now closed. The winners will be contacted shortly by email.

 

Preview: Underage Festival 2010

 
By on Thursday, 8th April 2010 at 12:00 pm
 

Remember when you were sixteen, and the super coolest indie troupe were playing at the super coolest local venue, but hey, you weren’t allowed in, no Sirey, as you, little one, were under the age of 18. Argh, the mass of frustration which followed. Why must tiny digits disallow someone from seeing brilliant music live? Well that’s exactly what Underage Festival thought. And alas, they have flicked their finger to the whole ‘Over 18 only’ cliché, and started an event which is for young ones, and young ones only!

Yes, you are only permitted through the gate of Underage Festival, which takes place in Victoria Park, London, if you are 18 and under. The festival aims to provide an awesome event for those who might not have access to the general gig laden with age restrictions. No alcohol is permitted on the site, and the website even has a section devoted to parents, but despite it’s clean cut ways, each year proves to be a completely and utterly rad party with a fantastic line up to boot.

2010 is no different. Already confirmed to be playing the gig on Sunday 1st August include M.I.A, Ellie Goulding (pcitured right), Daisy Dares You, Chapel Club, Egyptian Hip Hop, New Young Pony Club, Los Campesinos!, Lightspeed Champion, Hadouken!, General Fiasco, Stornoway and Tinchy Stryder.

Kinda cooler than the er, school concert huh?

Tickets for the event are a mere £29.50, so if you’re 18 and under and dig the sound of Underage, why not grab one now? I won’t deny it, I am quite jealous. Damn youngsters!

Following on from the amazing lineups of the past two years, the Mencap Little Noise sessions are back again this November to raise more money for the mental disability charity.

The lineup is almost complete, with a string of pretty amazing performances scheduled. Personally, I’m most excited about Editors day, along with the pop-tastic Alexandra Burke, Mika and Newton Faulkner days – all of the shows have great talent and with the promise of special guests, I say you should hop on down to Union Chapel to check out some great music.
