Hot in the Isles

Ladyhawke played to a packed audience, including The O.C. A-lister Mischa Barton, in the John Peel Tent at this year’s Glastonbury Festival on June 28. “Pip Brown and her band played a charged set in front of an audience that spilled outside the tent as festival-goers struggled to get a glimpse of the band,” NME reported. “Playing a set based around her debut album, Brown and co had the audience screaming along to the likes of ‘Magic’, ‘Back Of The Van’ and ‘Dusk Till Dawn’. However it was the impressive closing couplet of singles ‘Paris Is Burning’ and ‘My Delirium’ that triggered the loudest singalong from the large crowd.” Ladyhawke, 30, has announced she will perform a one-off charity gig for one fan and their friends on August 26 in an as-yet unannounced London venue. The singer will perform for a fan and their chosen guestlist in aid of SunSmart’s ‘Skindividual’ initiative, which aims to encourage young people to protect their skin from too much UV. The entrant who garners the largest guestlist for the show will win entry to the gig with their friends.
