Radio 1's Hackney Weekend - Sunday 24th June 2012

Hi guys!
I'm sure a lot of you know about the festival that took place over the weekend at Hackney Marshes. For those who don't it was Radio 1's Hackney Weekend, a free festival which saw many artists perform over the 2 days. I live literally 10 minutes away from the venue so when I heard about it there was no doubt in my mind that I was gonna go. I've lived in Hackney my whole life and we've never had anything like this, so it was definitely something special.

There were so many amazing artists, some on at the same time so I wasn't able to see everyone but I did see a lot, including:

Tim Westwood
Plan B
Jessie J
Florence + The Machine
Dizzee Rascal (the special guest)
Labrinth
Azealia Banks
Taio Cruz
Rihanna

My favourite performances were Labrinth - who was incredible, he ripped up the stage; Jessie J - who, of course has always been and will always be my baby; Dizzee Rascal - I wasn't expecting him so it was a pleasant surprise, especially when he started playing his old songs; Tim Westwood - an amazing DJ who was playing some bangers; and of course RIHANNA! After seeing her perform I love her even more, she even brought Jay Z on stage :P

Okay, I'm gonna stop talking now and show you the pictures.... :)
