WATCH: Jay-Z, Kanye West at BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend

BBC Radio 1′s big Hackney Weekend in London was a huge success, with an estimated 50,000 people attending the first day which featured a slew of big-name performers. Artists taking the stage included Jack White, Ed Sheeran, will.i.am, Rita Ora, Nicki Minaj, Emeli Sande, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia (who just announced their latest tour will be their final one) and, of course, the headliner Jay-Z, who was joined by M.I.A. and Rihanna for the first half of his set. For the last half hour, Kanye West surprised the crowd and joined his Watch the Throne comrade.

The pair performed renditions of “Otis,” “No Church in the Wild,” “Murder to Excellence,” and last but not least, “N----- in Paris”. Fortunately for those who could not attend, BBC broadcasted the free event on television, meaning for the first time, there’s pro-shot video of The Throne performing.

Sunday's line-up features headliner Rihanna, along with performances from Florence and the Machine, Tinie Tempah, Jessie J, Plan B, David Guetta and Lana Del Rey.

Watch video of Jay-Z and Kanye West performing at Hackney Weekend below. Scroll to around the 21:00 mark to see Beyoncé mosh to “N----- in Paris." It's pretty amazing.

WATCH: Fiona Apple's First Video for New Album

In preparation for her video for “Every Single Night”, the first from Fiona Apple's long-awaited album, The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do, the singer gave director Joseph Cahill pretty simple instructions: “do things to me and put me in situations and surprise me.” The end result, as revealed early Sunday morning, is definitely interesting. The entire video is a bit strange, but beautiful.

Watch the video here for "Every Single Night" below (via Sundance Channel). The Idler Wheel... will be available on June 19.
