Tinie Tempah, Lana Del Rey and Jessie J @ BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend

A snapshot of Tinie Tempah performing on day two of Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend.

Britain’s new king of grime performed two new tracks from his forthcoming second album, ‘Drinking from the Bottle’ and ‘Mosh Pit’.

When I wasn’t running for cover at the first sign of freak showers, I was exploring the New Music tent, 1Xtra tent and the overpriced eateries at the two-day festival. I caught sets by Lana Del Rey (lots of snogging couples), Jessie J (damn, she looked good in those striped jeans), Chase and Status (flashy) and Rihanna (bra malfunction action).
