Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go but I’ve watched along over the weekend and WOW. Personal favourite had to be Jay-Z, and when he brought out Kanye, it was just fantastic. It’s really true, he doesn’t need anything but himself to make it an electrifying show.
Other favourites were Florence, Nicki Minaj and Ed Sheeran but I especially liked Tinie Tempah, he’s been away for a while but he was brill, really got the crowd going and I couldn’t help bouncing around my kitchen to it.
There was big talk around Rihanna’s performance and as usual, she came out partially dressed and then let a member of the audience play around with her bra, but despite this I actually enjoyed her show. She isn’t the best singer, in my opinion, but her songs are catchy and she does work the stage incredibly.
I love Lana Del Rey, she dresses beautifully and I wish to God I had her hair. I loved her album, it was on repeat in my car for weeks and weeks, but when she sings live, I can’t help but cringe a little. Her set at Hackney was no different, and it completely pains me! Sometimes she had it so right, but when it’s wrong, it’s very wrong.
I don’t think they’ll top it next year, it was a great weekend and had arguably THE biggest names in music headlining, doesn’t stop me yearning for the next one to come round quick!
