So many great RFB this year, it's impossible to pick just three. Some highlights of non RFB shows that jump to mind are..

Prince at Electric Ballroom

Flume headlining the dance stage at Reading & Leeds Festival.

Apologies to all that I have missed, there are I am sure many...

 

And just because we found it SO hard to choose just three, we've complied a playlist of 100 tracks from this year that we thought were killer. Listen below, see you in 2015.
