Music Choice: 26 July - 1 August

Victoria Park is the place for festivals this weekend. The biggest party of the year for the under-18 set,Underage Festival, takes place on Sunday. M.I.A. headlines with a little help from Crystal Castles, Daisy Dares You, and others. Parents: Here's everything you need to know about the afternoon.

Should you happen to be over the age of 18, you can still take in the fresh air and indie rock on Saturday for Field Day. The multi-stage festival features an eclectic line up including Phoenix, the Fall, No Age, and a DJ set from Simian Mobile Disco. Fancy going out on a work night? Here's what's happening elsewhere this week:

To make up for a thin start to the week, we've got a plethora of options for you on Wednesday. Now wavers Wild Palms are playing Hoxton Bar and Kitchen. Toronto's John Kameel Farah is still in town, this time at the others. Beat the Radar will be celebrating their recently released single, 'By the Sea' at the Lock Tavern in Camden, and for more nautically situated shows, Left with Pictures will be at Tamesis Dock.

Thursday, brooding Brooklyn popsters the Pains of Being Pure at Heart will be at Heaven.

Friday, Richard Warren of the Hybirds, Echoboy, and a dozen or so remixes, will be going it solo at St. Moritz Club. Meanwhile, at the Barbican, Dean and Britta will be playing '13 Most Beautiful Songs,' a soundtrack for Andy Warhol's screen tests. A limited edition album of the same name is also available now.
