For a fifth year Roundhouse Rising returns to take place at the Roundhouse in London between Monday 16th and Sunday 22nd February 2015. The event presents new music acts across a wide range of genres as well as workshops, masterclasses and creative projects.
The first acts confirmed are FTSE, Tim Exile, Roundhouse Resident Artists, Pretty Vicious, The Tones, Hub Sessions, Gwilym Gold, Charlie Cunningham, Kaity Rae, Digital Futures, Shlomo, Roundhouse Young Creatives, Girl Band, The Magic Gang, Object Object, Reeps One, Rex Domino, Ophelia, and Vulcan MC.
Ticket prices vary depending upon event, from £3 to £8.
In addition, Rising will feature a whole range of projects, panels, talks and workshops.
Workshops are aimed at 14-25 year olds who are looking to gain a wealth of experience in the music industry with songwriting, demos, and DJing the masterclass subjects.
In addition to a line-up of new music hand-picked by Rising's programming partners, the festival is also dedicated to showcasing the young, emerging talent that has been cultivated at the Roundhouse. This year the Roundhouse will work closely with a team of young ambassadors to programme and deliver Rising as part of their ambition to nurture the next generation of talented creatives. Each night of Rising 2015 will see a Roundhouse Resident Artist open the show and Hub Sessions on Friday will see very special performances from talented emerging songwriters that have developed their skills as part of the Roundhouse’s programme for 11-25 year olds. Plus young Resident DJs will carry on the music 'til late in Made Bar & Kitchen.;
There will also be the café and several bars, as well as some events moving off-site to East London.
The Roundhouse is more than just a venue. Each year it helps 3000 11-25 year-olds from all backgrounds to realise their creative potential through opportunities in music, media and performing arts. Much of this work takes place in the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios - a dedicated creative centre for music and media production, broadcasting, performance and rehearsal, where young people work with industry professionals to learn and develop their skills.
4 days of live music, masterclasses, panels, workshops and creative projects with ticketholders encouraged to wander the building and get involved with live visuals from Eyes On The Wall, a mixtape artwork exhibition by Funny Tummy, a takeover by art collective Belly Kids and much more.
This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels, hostels and guest houses in the area.
More information will be here when available.
