RADIO 1’s Hackney Weekend sees Hackney Marshes, turn from the usual football (82 pitches) to music. For those of you not holding tickets to the Olympic gig up the road in Stratford, the Hackney Weekend features an alternative chance to catch pop music Olympians in action: Jay-Z, Rihanna, Rita Ora, local girl made good Leona Lewis, the Hackney Empire Community Choir, Nicky Minaj, Florida and local rappers Dizzee Rascal, Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk and – nice name – Cheekie Bugga and the ubiquitous Florence + the Machine. (Gary Barlow is away.)
