This year's Jersey Live festival took place a few weekends ago, on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 September at the Showground in Trinity. The festival attracts around 10,000 people, with more than 60 artists spread over seven stages, including big-hitting headline performances from Basement Jaxx and The Kooks.

Elsewhere on the main stage and smaller Les Inrocks stage there were plenty of familiar names, including Twisted Wheel, Chew Lips, Fight Like Apes, Golden Silvers and The Temper Trap, all of whom have performed on the BBC Introducing stage at a UK festival in the last couple of years.

Ex-Million Dead frontman, Frank Turner:

Huw Stephens favourites, Golden Silvers:
