Discover tomorrow’s headliners as Roundhouse Rising returns to Camden from October 15th to 29th.
Over 11 days of music, Roundhouse Rising Festival returns to shine a light on the next generation of emerging talent. 2019 marks the ninth year of the festival which, to date, has provided a platform for the likes of Tom Misch and our two-time cover star Little Simz. You can check our 2018 On The Stereo feature here.
Headlining this year’s festival in the iconic halls of Camden’s Roundhouse is the inimitable GAIKA, whose electrifying show Roundhouse present in conjunction with Serious Productions.
GAIKA plays on October 29th, a one-off show which will bring his distinctive blend of grime, dancehall and warped electronica to the fore with the help of a ten-piece jazz ensemble led by composer Jason Yarde. Expect a politically charged audio-visual experience, in which GAIKA will further cement his position as a fiery voice of a generation.
This year’s Roundhouse Rising partners, who have helped to shape and curate this the programming, include Gilles Peterson and Brownwood’s Future Bubblers, Brighton festival The Great Escape, BBC Introducing in London, Paradigm agency, female collective The F Word, Bucks Music Group, and Brighton-based 13 Artists.
Besides GAIKA, further highlights across the eleven nights of music include Irish spoken word artist Sinead O’Brien, Liverpool electro-pop trio Stealing Sheep, west London grime artist Big Zuu, and Weird Milk, the 60s-leaning indie band.
