Another of the summer’s delights is festival season. Whether you prefer hard rock or classical music, you’ll find the event for you in our comprehensive guide. One lady who’ll be keeping festival-goers on their dancing feet this summer is Dutch singer Caro Emerald. And who better to front our festival special? She already has a performance at the world-famous Glastonbury event under her belt, and will be headlining festivals across Europe in the coming months.

I had the pleasure of chatting to the multi-platinum selling artist recently about her eagerly anticipated third album (its title is still a secret), James Bond singles and a possible progression into the world of acting. Can you see her as a Disney princess? We also discussed the current music scene in the Netherlands, head to page 46 to discover her musical recommendations.
