A FORMER Huddersfield student is set to share a stage with both The Rolling Stones and Beady Eye this summer.

Psychedelic rockers Temples have been dubbed as one of the hottest new bands around at the moment. Their keyboard player, Adam Smith, studied Music Technology and Popular Music BA(Hons) at Huddersfield University before going on to do an MA by Research. Temples will be joining Mick Jagger and pals at Hyde Park on July 6.

They have only been together seven months yet NME magazine have described them as 'One of the biggest bands of 2013.' They released their debut single 'Shelter Song' at the end of 2012 and received critical acclaim. Their rapid rise to fame has seen them secure slots at a host of top festivals including, Leeds and Reading, Beacons and Latitude as well as supporting Beady Eye at Mallorca Rocks and Ibiza Rocks!
