Roundhouse Rising Festival 2016

The annual Roundhouse Rising Festival 2016 is returning NEXT WEEK, March 17th – 20th, at, well, Camden’s iconic Roundhouse! This festival celebrates the best upcoming bands, with a particular focus on The Roundhouse Studios’ own talent.


This year sees UK’s fastest rising band Black Honey headline Saturday night – finishing their tour right at the festival with us. The Roundhouse have partnered with DIY Magazine and The Magic Gang are taking to the stage on the Friday night too.


The Roundhouse also have Kuenta i Tambu (left) joining the line up – we introduced these guys to you a couple of months ago, where after seeing them on the tour, I was instantly latched. They had the whole crowd dancing absolutely madly on a Monday night, the Afro-Carribean hip-hop, fused with dance music, is not something to be missed. The colours are wild and vibrant, and it’s just a performance that will make you feel so full of energy!


Afrikan Boy is also joining us on Saturday night, an Alternative – Hip-hop, world music fusion artist. The Roundhouse is always tops at picking the best new talent, so you’d be a fool to miss out on this line up!

But the most important part of the festival is of course celebrating the Studios’ talent. The Rising Sounds Album Launch is also an event not to be missed – this is a collection of musicians who have been recording with top producers. The Studios’ talent also takes over on Saturday with the Emerging Talent stage in Torquil’s Bar all day– a chance for audience to catch a glimpse of the beauty that is created inside the Studios with our favourite emerging artists and project participants – (for free!)


 You should come check out the vibe at the Festival, because the talent the Roundhouse nurtures is beyond special and is the future of the music industry, not to mention the big headline shows the festival is offering! Black Honey and The Magic Gang are sold out, so go grab tickets for Kuenta i Tambu and Afrikan Boy before they do too! You don’t want to miss out on this weekend!!
