Sometimes, identifying a future pop star is just of following the money trail. Occasionally, though, it’s down to raw star power. Maggie Rogers is certainly for of the latter than the former.

Arriving fashionably late, coat still firmly attached, our Maggie has that aura of something special. By the time latest single ‘Give A Little’, she’s sliding across the stage in a state constant movement. Vibing off her own velvet tone, she emits an energy that feels a step apart from anything else on this weekend’s Reading bill. Fresh but with genuine depth, it may still be relatively early days, but that path to the top feels already set.
