Music Preview: Summer Series @ Somerset House

Somerset House’s annual Summer Series music extravaganza has been announced, with Londoners Katy B, Anna Calvi and Paloma Faith set to headline gigs in the historic building's magnificent courtyard during those balmy July evenings.

The open air music programme also features Jill Scott’s soul, the Tindersticks dreamy melancholia, sweeping electro from M83, cabaret pianist Tim Minchin and… er… The Enemy, between 7-17 July.

Previous years have maintained a varied line up, hosting the likes The Prodigy, Super Furry Animals and Adele. The series has proven itself to be one of London’s festival highlights, and with tickets starting from £22.50 these unique events are a bargain. They'll be sure to sell out fast so probably best to use some flexi-time to guarantee getting on the ticket sale site bang on 9am on 27 April.

Check out the full line-up of the Summer Series at Somerset House here. Tickets go on sale Friday, 27 April 9am priced £22.50 - £35 though www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.somersethouse.org.uk
