There can be no doubt that the summer of 2012 was all about sport.

But 2013 is set to be the Summer of Music.

The floodgates have opened. The explosion of world class artist albums, tours and record-breaking ticket sales (Capital's Summertime Ball with Vodafone at Wembley sold out in 2 hours!) all guarantee that, this summer, music will provide the emotional charge that sport delivered last year.
