Måneskin: Sex and drugs and geopolitical block votes

As Liverpool prepares to host on their behalf this week, we’ve put together a special edition to celebrate…

Måneskin are the biggest band to emerge from Eurovision since ABBA. They’ve sold millions of records, been streamed billions of times, Iggy Pop loves them and they’re about to make their Glastonbury debut. They tell us this week that they now have a unique plan to change the world for the better.

  • There’s a 16-page festival guide to make sure you have a summer of sounds, whatever your budget
  • Paul Simenon from The Clash talks about feeling they were on a mission in the early days of punk
