December 5 2011 - Christmas season is upon us more and more what with the Jingle Ball and XFM's Winter Wonderland taking place over the last few days.
Last night saw the Manchester iteration of the event take place with a truly stellar line-up consisting of Ed Sheeran, Chase & Status, Nero, Maverick Sabre, Mary-Anne Hobbes, Fenech-Soler and The Big Pink.
Each of the acts is arguably a success story of this year, breaking through and taking particularly unique approaches to the music industry as well as songwriting.
December 15th will see XFM bring there special brand to London's Brixton academy with a great indie focussed line-up of The Horrors, The Kaiser Chiefs, The Maccabees, Band Of Skulls and We Are Augustines.
