A little dark, a tad bit creepy if you don’t like puppets but the music is AMAZING!!
Are you ready? This year there is no excuse not to have all of the festival essentials. If you don’t have a checklist let MusicSpy help you!
Like Kate Moss you have to make sure you are sporting high festival fashion couture. Such as trendy festival head gear and the must have wellies!
Although you won’t sleep much rest in your multi sleeper mud free tent, and when you feel dead on your feet relax in your comfy warm sleeping bag. Get around at night with your state of the art head torch. And mend those drunken festival mishaps with first aid kit to hand.
Good Luck and Happy Festivals!

Rapper Tupac Shakur was shot dead 16 years ago, and last night he rose from the dead at the 2012 Coachella festival. Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg pushed technology to the limit by having Tupac perform as a hologram on stage with them.
Watch the video to see his resurrection.

If you sing when you’re at work and your colleagues tell you that you should be in a band, you have to enter! If Music Spy won, we would like to pick up a mic next to Arctic Monkeys lead singer Alex Turner. For us, he has been one of the best emerging talents in the UK (and arguably the world).

This was featured in the recent film Drive starring Ryan Gosling. Every now and again a movie comes along that has a certain look, mood and soundtrack that work perfectly together. This is one of those examples. Like Michael Mann’s Heat, Drive’s soundtrack, in particular this song, gives it so much emotion.
