PIL are among the highlights of this year's Body & Soul. Here are five others...

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Regarded as one of the finest songwriters to have emerged from Australia, the now Brighton-based Cave is touring his challenging new album, Push the Sky Away, but expect lots of old favourites too.


Beyoncé's little sister (left) may not be in the same superstar league, but her smart brand of R & B shows the talent was not just confined to the future Mrs Carter in the Knowles household.

James Murphy

The New York electronica whizz delivered some of the most essential music of the 2000s thanks to his hugely influential LCD Soundsystem. This DJ set is not to be missed.


Jack Colleran – a 20-year-old from Newbridge, Co Kildare (pictured below) – has attracted euphoric reviews for his carefully crafted electronic music. A debut album is expected later in the year.

Pantha Du Prince

The German techno DJ has always been ahead of the back and his latest album sees him embrace the wonderful sound of bells. A true craftsman.
