Headline acts include Moshi Moshi-favourites The Wave Pictures, Tawiah – recently getting love from Mark Ronson and Plan B, and Woodpecker Wooliams – who’s been getting a lot of buzz at the moment having featured on the Guardian and the BBC websites. As well as the music, there will be numerous art installations including a “majestic soundscape” by Matt Robertson, composer of outstanding film scores and music director to Bjork. Yeah you’d be kind of stupid not to go really wouldn’t you. Already receiving love from places like Metro London, Le Cool and Artrocker; this promises to be a big event.

Sound Tracks Festival 2013 is taking place this Saturday 11 May in London. A really unique festival that I’m proud to be involved with, Sound Tracks takes place at numerous unusual venues along the East London Overground Line; from Dalston’s Old Boys Club to the Bussey Building in Peckham, via Canada Water Library, the Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe and the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton. And, uniquely, you can watch musicians perform on the trains between the venues too! Yes, that’s right; musicians on the London Overground – Sound Tracks is the first festival to ever be allowed this privilege.
