Modest Mouse and Wolf Alice are the latest additions to the steadily growing line-up for Calling Festival 2015; a day festival that will see thousands flock to Clapham Common in London this summer to experience the latest and greatest in rock music.

Washington six-piece Modest Mouse and North Londoners Wolf Alice hit the Calling bill alongside the likes of headliners Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, and previously announced Ryan Adams and the Shining, The Hives, and Echo And The Bunnymen. The multi-stage festival is still to see further exciting line-up announcements in the coming weeks; the bill so far barely scrapes the surface of what to expect at this extraordinary event, which last year played host to more than 80,000 festival goers who congregated to experience Stevie Wonder and Aerosmith.

Calling Festival - Stevie Wonder, London, Jun 29 2014


As a lifelong fan of Stevie Wonder's recordings from the 1960s and 70s (plus the odd gem from the largely best-averted 1980s), I have avoided checking him out live over the years, for reasons I can't fully explain. Perhaps it's that thing where you're so into something that you just don't want to be let down by some potential horror that it's all gone terribly wrong over the years and you don't want your love for the stuff tainted by a bad experience.

And so it was, heading down to Clapham Common on a sunny summer's afternoon to see Stevie, I had mixed feelings of seeing the man himself - the legend, the "genius", as he was originally known back in the early days - and of the possibility that the pedestal upon which I'd put him all these years would crumble away rapidly over the course of a couple of hours, due to the passing of time and the conceivable decline in musical character.

After queuing for beers for what felt like an eternity, my companion and I found a good spot and waited with trepidation for things to kick off. Eventually, and without any fanfare, a band gradually began to assemble onstage beginning a jam which morphed sneakily into a very slick and tight cover of Marvin Gaye's classic 'How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)'. This band were precisely the kind  you'd expect Stevie to have backing him these days. They had 'LA session dudes' written all over them but they demonstrated enough playfulness and swing to make it work.

If you want a unique festival experience this year, London could be the place for you. Featuring a diverse range of events from the independent ethics of Jabberwocky to the mainstream attitude of Wireless, 2014 is not all about the States.

The UK is home to some incredible, highly respected music festivals such as Isle of Wight Festival, Leeds and Reading Festival and, of course, Glastonbury - but just what do we have in store from the nation's capital? London is unquestionably the UK's most vibrant city and, when it comes to music, there's really no denying that. The rest of the world may have SXSW, Coachella, Ultra and Exit (to name but a very small few), but London has a plethora of unique local events with line-ups and atmospheres that really prove their worth - and we're here to share them with you.

All Tomorrow's Parties present this brand new festival for 2014, co-hosted by Pitchfork and Primavera Sound and set to take place at The Excel Centre this August. For its inaugural event, Jabberwocky will see headline acts from Neutral Milk Hotel, James Blake, Darkside and Caribou, not to mention support from Kurt Vile & The Violators, Hookworms and Electric Wizard. Like many of the best festivals, it's not all about the music as Jabberwocky will be hosting some film events and, as the name suggests, there'll be plenty of art to enjoy too. Tickets are priced at £38.50 per day.
