Miles Kane at Winter Wonderland

Miles Kane, White Lies and The Vaccines got into the festive spirit while performing at the O2 Academy Brixton last night (12.13.13).

The artists joined up-and-coming acts Chvrches, Temples and Lewis Watson for XFM's annual Winter Wonderland concert and more than 3,000 fans packed into the south London venue for the sold-out event.

'Better Than That' singer Miles took to the stage in a custom-made Union Jack blazer.

Speaking backstage ahead of the concert, he told BANG Showbiz: "This is the last gig after my tour and the crowds just make it so fun and exciting. Each gig is really avin' it and wild.

"The songs do feel like anthems now, Don't Forget Who You Are has definitely become one of the biggest."

The star performed hits from his 2011 debut 'Colour of the Trap' and this year's album 'Don't Forget Who You Are' and had the audience singing along to every lyric.

White Lies also gave an explosive performance before The Vaccines fell about the stage and powered through songs from their two hit records.

Frontman Justin Young said: "We've really been looking forward to the gig, it's nice to be back in Brixton.

"We've been doing separate projects and I've been in New York but we've missed each other."

The band had the audience on their feet playing spngs including 'Teenage Icon', 'Wreckin' Bar', 'Post Break-Up Sex' and 'Melody Calling'.

Miles Kane

Indie rock swagger from the charismatic Rascals frontman who reached for his inner Scott Walker with Arctic Monkey Alex Turner in The Last Shadow Puppets.

The Vaccines

Short, sharp garagey indie rock from these indie saviours.
