Festival fun in London! Highlights include Jabberwocky, Camden Crawl and Wireless...
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.
Jabberwocky (August 15th-16th)
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.

Swedish producer and DJ Avicii is trying something different at next weekend's Ultra Music Festival - which promises to turn Miami into a three day rave in the sunshine. Avicii, whose song 'Wake Me Up' is Spotify's most played track ever, is setting up a concept store pop-up at the festival and will sell a variety of branded items including t-shirts, flip-flops, hats and condoms.
Avicii's manager Ash Pournouri spoke to Billboard about the one-week only pop-up, which will be located on South Beach's Lincoln Rd, titled, quite simply, Avicii Store.

New York City officials and festival organizers have cancelled the final day of the Electric Zoo music festival. The event was cancelled after two festival attendees died of alleged drug overdoses. The Electric Zoo festival, also known as E-Zoo, is held annually on Randall's Island over the Labour Day weekend. The festival was first held in 2009 and this year's line-up included Armin Van Buuren, Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Aoki, Laidback Luke, Chase and Status and over another hundred acts.

The pair hooked up to perform new single 'Goin' Crazy' in what was a great way to star off the three-day festival
Dizzee Rascal was on the bill to open day one of the Radio 1 Big Weekend in Derry’s Ebrington Square on Friday (May 24), but rather than just keep the performance to himself the rapper decided to treat the fans to a special guest: Robbie Williams! The two performed their new duet 'Goin’ Crazy' much to the pleasure of the audience, who were already being treated to some amazing weather and performances over the weekend.
The three day event, which began yesterday (May 24) and will end on Sunday (May 26), has already seen its fair share of surprises in addition to the Dizzee-Robbie hook-up, with troubles at Heathrow forcing two acts (Angel Haze and Aluna George) to pull out of the festival last minute, whilst drum and bass duo Chase & Status saw a way around the problem by hiring their own private jet to get to the three-day event.
Meanwhile, Rudimental, who were in Northern Ireland at the time but their equipment wasn't, had to borrow their kit from other performers in order to play their set. Producer Amir Amor said: "We borrowed guitars, bass, microphones, a bit of love! Everything we could. But the gig just blew us away."
Chase & Status' new single, Flashing Lights, was released on November 21st and is the sixth single from their second album No More Idols. It follows on from their successful summer single Hitz, which featured British rapper Tinie Tempah and was released in July 2011. Chase & Status will play a sold out show at UKF Bass Culture in London on November 25th, 2011.
