After making a big splash at the BBC Introducing showcase at last year's South By South West, Florence and the Machine won a Brit Award and performed in the Live Lounge for Jo Whiley. With a uniquely skewed take on blues and folk, this beguiling band is a delight.
Florence performed twice at Radio 1's Big Weekend 2009: a full set on the In New Music We Trust stage and an intimate acoustic show for her old friends in the BBC Introducing tent.
