First up, they revealed the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend musical festival, which will host Jay-Z, Rihanna, Florence + the Machine, Jack White, David Guetta, and Tinie Tempah.

There will also be a host of arts events during the Olympics in London, including Stephen Fry and Tim Minchin, Shakespearean performances, dance from the Royal Ballet, a Yoko Ono exhibition, jazz tributes and much more.

The Hackney Weekend will take place a month before the Olympics begin, on June 23 and 24.
