This is our very last chance to big up the fantastically talented Southbank Centre Emerging Artists in Residence crew who, after tonight, will have formally emerged. Tonight is their night - all sixteen of them taking over the Royal Festival Hall main stage with a mixed up, muddled up, marvellous programme of music, lyricism, nasal flutes, beatboxing, balladeering, celling, rhyming, speaking, singing, drumming, electronica.... a whole ton of original material and fruitfully unexpected collaborations. Tickets are just £6 - that's 37.5p per artist not even including their special guests. Of which it's just been announced that grime artist Chipmunk's making an appearance and Radio 1's Rob da Bank's down there with a DJ set. One helluva bargain in anyone's books. Be there.
