It's June, and therefore the start of the summer, so Gigwise has decided to hit the beach – and it's turns out we're not alone.
While we're used to watching the likes of Rihanna, Jessie J, Paul McCartney, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Travis Barker of Blink-182 and Metallica's James Hetfield perform inside arena and stadiums, even music's biggest names need five minutes to work on their beach bodies.
We've compiled a list of some of our favourite music stars on the beach in a amusing and candid photo gallery – check it out below.
And don't forget, summer means the start of festival season and you can keep up to date with all this year's festivals by keeping an eye on Gigwise's Festival Guide throughout the summer.
