TWO OF MOJO’s albums of the year will be on show next summer as Jamie xx and Kendrick Lamarr are set to join Florence + The Machine live in London. The acts will come together on July 2, 2016, for the Barclaycard presents British Summer Time London festival. Blood Orange has also been confirmed for the outdoor gig, with more names set to be announced soon. Tickets for the BST Hyde show go on sale on Friday (December 4) at 9am (GMT). Head to MOJO Tickets for more information nearer the time.
Both Jamie’ xx In Colour and Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly were included in MOJO’s Albums Of 2015, with the latter reaching our top five for “raising the hip hop game sky high... with a thought provoking stew of words and music, anger and hope.”
