For the third year running, Wildlife Festival took over Brighton City Airport for two days of outstanding musical performancesÂ this weekend. It was anÂ eclectic band of artists that included superstar DJ Fatboy Slim, genre-hoppingÂ wonderkid J Hus and glitzy pop queen Jess Glynne, butÂ one genre dominated the lineupÂ like no other. TheseÂ are five grime sets from the festival that took thingsÂ to a whole other level.
Half a century is a long time to spend in music, let alone in one band. But that’s what Brian May, Queen’s glam-rock professor, is able to boast. A many-faceted personality, May’s talents cover more areas than his affinity for squealing solos and stage-crumbling riffs. He also has a PhD in Astrophysics, campaigns for animal rights and in his spare time nurses a deep fascination for cameras and stereoscopy.
Election day is here. You’ve followed all the build up, weighed up each party’s manifesto and laughed at the many, many memes. Now all you’ve got to do is vote. To make an even bigger difference though, you need to get your mates down to the polling station too. But how to scrape your laziest pals off the sofa when they misguidedly think it isn’t worth their time? You’re going to need a bit of help. Luckily, we have some for you; and it comes in the form of TV’s sassiest, most glamorous drag queen.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
