In the wake of the protests in the US and political unrest the world over, we at Bring the Noise UK wanted to shine a spotlight on some of the best Black musicians in music. We are going to do this in a series of articles, this first one being about legends throughout history. This article goes through music history, starting in the 1930s, and names some of the most influential and important Black artists to whom we owe so much. Watch out for part two, coming soon!
Reading & Leeds Festival, a calendar highlight for thousands of music fans every August Bank Holiday weekend. Year upon year the line-up is a showcase of the world's most talked about acts, spanning across tonnes of genres. The Saturday of Reading saw performances from headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as Imagine Dragons, Slaves, Parkway Drive, Skindred, You Me At Six and many more. Relive the festival with our photo gallery!
