London’s westend will burst into music this June with the Soho Music Month, a free music and cultural festival as part of the Mayor of London’s Sounds Like Lindon campaign. Hosted in a variety of venues across Soho and Carnaby Street, the festival will feature some of London’s best and emerging musical talents.
There will be a series of free outdoor concerts each Thursday in Carnaby’s Newburgh Quarter featuring Alex Tracey and Rock The Belles Hiphop DJ Battle, as well as the first ever all-female Vinyl Market in Berwick Street, Soho. Each Thursday in June, the Newburgh Quarter off Carnaby Street is hosting a series of free outdoor concerts from 5pm to 9pm showcasing the diversity of the London music scene.
There will also be a free guided walking tour to show the rich musical heritage of the area. Discover which music magazine had tits HQ on Carnaby and the iconic rockers who used to shop here and occasionally play gigs.
Music will literally spill out onto the streets with impromptu jazz sessions at The Duck & Rice and an in-store performance from Swedish singer-songwriter Natali Felicia at Sandqvist, among the many attractions.
The Soho Music Month will also include exhibition space Platform LDN at 3 Carnaby Street. Open each day this will consist of free events, live broadcasts, panel discussions and book signings with DJ Jumping Jack Frost and BBC Radio 1’s DJ Target.
In Carnaby, Shinola will launch new headphones and speakers to accompany its iconic turntable as well as hosting Bring Your Own Vinyl Parties, whilst Filson will host folk and soul sessions of Campfire Music Sessions in its store.
Dirty Bones will launch a limited-edition Doo Wop cocktail, named after Lauryn Hill’s first solo hit. So why not head down to London this June?
