Hackney 2012 Performances: Jay-Z x Kanye West, Nas, Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks, More


BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend was one of the hottest live shows that you’ve probably never heard of!

We posted Rihanna’s dope set earlier, but here’s some of the other live performances held in Hackney Marshes, East London this past weekend. Featured headliners include Jay-Z—with guests M.I.A. and Kanye West (not to mention Beyonce in the audience mosh-pitting)—Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, Nas, Azealia Banks, Trey Songz, and tons more international artists.

They sure know how to do it big over in the UK!
