From Hackney girl Leona Lewis’ spectacular opening on Saturday afternoon, to Rihanna’s high-energy closing performance, the BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra Hackney Weekend had something for every music fan.

Highlights of the two-day festival on Hackney Marshes included Jay-Z, special guest Dizzee Rascal, Jack White and DJ Calvin Harris.
