The Relentless Pop Up gigs at the Brighton music festival have already featured Frank Turner and Black Lungs.

Shake Aletti will the final pop up gig at 5pm in Brighton's Jubilee Square.

The quiet Irish man serenaded over 300 fans on the seafront esplanade with songs from debut album ‘Early In The Morning’ during a 20-minute set.

He called the show, “the strangest thing,” before commenting on the pier's rollercoasters and his fear of rides. “It looks tepid, but you won't get me on there,” he said.

James Vincent McMorrow will play the Unitarian Church at 9pm tonight as part of The Great Escape 2011.

Friendly Fires, Devlin, Katy B play tonight as well.
