Kicking off the summer music festival season, Sheffield’s finest homegrown talent

The Artic Monkeys are set to takeover Finsbury Park in London for two gigs this bank holiday weekend. It will be the biggest non-festival show to date for Alex Turner and his modish crew. Expect stripped-back stage sets and the rock n’ roll to speak for itself. With support acts Miles Kane and Tame Impala set to warm-up the 40,000 strong crowd, north London’s socks are certainly going to be rocked off this weekend. If you can’t make the gig, the band are recording an acoustic set for Xfm to be aired on Friday 23 May.
