In just one week this year's Love Supreme Jazz Festival returns to Glynde Place, East Sussex, for a three-day event jam packed with performances from a diverse cross section of jazz, soul and pop talent.

Hundreds of epic shows, memory lapses, unexplained injuries, one year long detour with Iggy Pop and multiple Grammy nominations later, Queens Of The Stone Age re-emerge from the desert newly scarred and somehow strangely prettier with lucky seventh album, Villains.

Southern Fail – The Musical, the big hit at this year's Brighton Fringe, arrives for one last performance this Saturday at Brighton's Sallis Benney Theatre.

It's been 43 years since Kraftwerk changed the musical landscape with their hugely influential Autobahn album in 1974. 

Brighton's unique, historic racecourse is the venue for an on-going series of live music events with spectacular views across the south coast, with a line-up boasting Human League, Marc Almond, Hacienda Classical with Groove Armada and Stereo MCs.

Fusing hip-hop with classical music, coining the term HipHopera, Josephine and the Artizans will join the line up on Sunday 9th July at the Priory Park Festival, in Chichester.

John Lennon's musical career is littered with many-a barbed confessional and an equal amount of love strewn ballads. He was a complicated man. Both a lover and a fighter.

After instantly selling out their UK tour within a matter of minutes, electro pioneers Kraftwerk  will be at the Brighton Centre, next month.

Feist's first album in six years reflects on secrets and shame, loneliness and tenderness, care and fatigue and is at its core a study on self-awareness. 

The Unthanks release what has been their most difficult album to make so far, and yet they feel is also their possibly their best to date, thanks to not one but two Drakes, neither of whom are Nick…! 

I was a Dodson and Fogg virgin until the Down At The Beach EP landed in my inbox. I am, in contrast, a long-time fan of the EP's creator, Chris Wade. He's written a wealth of book and magazine titles; the contents of which both inform and entertain.
