For those lucky enough to bag tickets to this year’s pre-furlough year Glastonbury Festival, there was a ticking clock until the end of May, when the majority of stage times are usually released each year.

Live Review: Haim @ The Forum

HAIM, a three piece band of sisters, is reputedly one of those overnight successes that took years of graft. The Californian ladies seemed to be virtually unheard of only a year or so ago. Yet, as 2013 draws to a close they have sold out two nights at north London’s The Forum and have a longer UK tour planned for spring 2014. Imelda Michalczyk reviews and photographs.
