Music and comedy standout themes in UK edition of Robert Redford's independent film festival, now in its second year

An appearance by the Eagles to mark a new documentary about the iconic 70s rockers, a live show from singer and performance artist Peaches to celebrate her new film, and a Jimmy Carr-hosted panel to discuss the standup comedy-themed drama Sleepwalk With Me are among the highlights of this year's Sundance London, which returns to the O2 arena next month.

In its second year, the UK edition of the festival, which culls the best selection of movies from Robert Redford's annual celebration of American independent film-making, once again has a musical flavour. Grammy award-winning composer David Arnold will present a panel titled The Art of the Score, detailing his work on Bond films such as Casino Royale, while documentary Muscle Shoals, about the world-famous Alabama studio, has a UK premiere. »
