You'd be stupid miss any of these. 

Festival season is finally arriving. It won’t be long till we’re necking lukewarm, flat beers and dancing like a twat.

At Guestlist HQ we've sorted you lucky people a list of some of the wickedest acts to see this summer; including the hottest newcomers and the legends alike.

LCD Soundsystem

A colossal return from the mighty LCD Soundsystem. With a new record on the way, innovative US band are also hitting the festival circuit hard. Last time they performed was 2011, so seeing their name back on line ups is huge! 

They'll be bringing their experimental fusion of rock and electronic music in sets that will blow us away. A combination of their return and unique sound means LCD Soundsystem are a must see this summer. 

catch them at: Glastonbury, Lovebox, Primavera Sound (ES), We Love Green (FR), Panorama (US), Pukkelpop (BE), Lowlands (NL), FYF (US), Roskilde (DEN), OutsideLands (US)


He's one of the biggest success stories from the UK grime scene. He was thrown into the limelight in early 2015 after being shortlisted by the BBC's Sound of 2015. Since he's rained down huge hits that has everyone going nuts. 

The MC will be hitting the fields this summer to lay down the grime law with his tight and humorous lyrical ability. Whether you go for 'Shut Up', 'Where Do You Know Me From', or any other of his massive records, Stormzy will no doubt be bringing fire festivals this summer. 

catch him at: Great Escape, Loves Saves The Day, Made, Lovebox, Nass, Glasto, Wildlife, Detonate, X Music, Radio 1 Big Weekend, Outlook (CR), Sonar (ES), Exit (CR)


The lethal combination of the bassline champion DJ Q, South London's grimest Royal T and the queen of garage and hefty bassy beats Flava D have been raising clubs to the ground over the past year. Combining their collective talents the trio are now moving from the clubs to the fields, a move that's granateed to cause some damage. 

They'll be mixing up the very best in heavyweight UK bass music, bringing some serious vibes. If you've seen their videos you'd know what to expect, if not then strap yourself in for a fast paced bass fuelled party!

catch them at: Boomtown, Shambala, Lovebox, Forbidden Forest, Parklife, Detonate, X Music

The twisted rave obsessed half of Paul Woodford, Special Request is tearing things up right now. Hitting the clubs with hard, old skool styled jungle techno he casts a long shadow of the dark underground scene wherever he plays.
