"I've lived in Hackney all my life and it'll be good for people to come and see that's it not got the reputation they think. It's my home. I know everyone, everyone's friendly. I know it's got negativity in terms of crime but I like it here.

"I love Jessie J at the moment - her catsuits, her hair, her swagger. I've never seen her live so this is going to be the best opportunity."

"I love Hackney. I love the Broadway market, it's trendy, it's a nice place to work and there's lots to do. I genuinely think it's great Radio 1's coming here. It'll liven up the area even more. I'd love to go and it's great it's free. You'd expect to pay 150 quid to see those acts over two days.

"For me, my favourite is Ed Sheeran. I think he's an amazing singer and lyricst."

"What? It's free? I'm definitely going to try to go. This line up is big. David Guetta? You can't get bigger.

"I hope Kelly Rowland turns up to sing When Love Takes Over. It's good Leona's there - she's from round here."

"The whole thing sounds cool. Hackney is my home town. I feel comfortable round here.

"It's great Wretch 32 and Tinie Tempah are going to be there. I like their stuff, I've got Wretch's mixtapes."
