24 June, 2012: Forget the rain in London and across the UK, the stars of Hackney Weekend shone as Rihanna joined Jay-Z on stage to headline the Saturday night of this year's Hackney Weekend.
The US stars were top of the bill at the East London event, and took to the stage following a stunning set from UK indie stars Kasabian, who proved their headline status performing alongside the hip-hop king at the top of the line up at the annual event.
Among Jay-Z's set were hits including '99 Problems', 'Bonnie & Clyde' and 'Girls Girls Girls' with wife Beyonce spotted dancing along to the show at the front of the stage. Kanye West also joined Jay to perform tracks from their 'Watch The Throne' album.
