Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival is one of the most prestigious jazz festivals in the world. It was held for the fifth time in 2009 and was participated by more than 1,000 artists involved in 200 programs and attracted more than 80,000 visitors during its three-day stretch (March 6, 7, 8).
Adele headlined the U.K.'s famed Glastonbury festival Saturday, a much anticipated gig that the singer called "the best fucking moment of my whole life" during the show. The 15-song, 90-minute-long set featured the live debut of 25's "River Lea" alongside over a dozen of the singer's hits including the headlining set's closer "Someone Like You."
“We’re going to play a few songs now that you might know. You’ve been very patient; thank you very much. You also might not know them as well…” Dave Gahan, bridging the main set of Soulsavers material and their encore, which featured two songs from his first two solo records and two from Depeche Mode’s Songs of Faith and Devotion.
Andra Day was in charge of setting the mood for the night, and her incredible vocals and soulful sound did just that. She's definitely the only person we know that can pull off wearing a roller in her fringe without it looking like she's a bit mad, too. Towards the end of her set we came to the conclusion that she's the love child of Adele, Rihanna and Amy Winehouse, a mix we're just a little jealous of.
