What: Luke Edward Hall 'Hotel Majestic'
Where: Alex Eagle Studio
When: Wednesday 23rd - 6 June
So I think I've fallen deeply for Luke Edward Hall, an artist dabbling in design, ceramics, interiors and fashion. His aesthetic is deliciously classical and maximalist, and this latest exhibition draws upon his love of Italy, inspired by a Steven Tennant biography recounting a 1920s trip with Siegfried Sassoon. Swoon.

What: All Points East Festival

When: Friday 25th - 3 June
All Points East Festival might be the new kids in town but they're here to shake up your weekend. Technically a 10 day event, Tung HQ is most excited for the music starting Friday, with headlines from LCD Soundsystem, The xx and Björk to see you through til Sunday. Check out the handy playlist we put together here!

What: The Rolling Stones ft. Florence + The Machine
Where: London Stadium
When: Friday 25th
Once you've headlined Glastonbury you'd think your support slot days were over, but I guess when The Rolling Stones ask, you say yes. Gracious Flo has popped up with Jagger for a few performances, our fave being her 'Gimme Shelter' duets. Expect more of the same plus a sneak preview of the new album, followed by the Stones' first U.K. tour in five years. Not too shabby.

What: Bob Carlos Clarke, 'The Agony and The Ecstasy'
Where: The Little Black Gallery
When: Saturday 26th
We featured Bob Carlos Clarke in a Sunday Roundup a while back, and this Saturday is your last chance to view his photos of wild 1990s public school kids getting frisky at the disco. The exhibition is sweetly nostalgic, veering away from being too pornographic, instead emphasising the fumbling innocence of teen lust.
