Gather 'round, music lovers! One of London's finest independent venues has unveiled its new season of gigs and, as expected, it's eclectic enough to delight the lot of you.
Rock, post punk, disco pop, hip hop... you'll find it all at Roundhouse this autumn, as this Camden institution welcomes a heady mix of legendary artists and the best new talent. Plus, there's the return of Pitchfork Music Festival and Roundhouse Rising to look forward to — no need to wait till next summer to get your festival fix!
Let's take a closer look at the line-up, shall we...
Autumn treats at Roundhouse
Among this season's highlights are ethereal singer-songwriter Banks (16 September), post-punk legends Pavement (22-25 October), rockers Band of Horses (30 October), disco pop star Tove Lo (5 November), and hip hop artist Joey Bada$$ (16 December).
From 4 to 8 October, you're invited to discover top musical talent of tomorrow, including the venue's own resident artists at Roundhouse Rising Festival — if you're aged 30 or younger you can get tickets for just £1, in partnership with VICE UK. Then, on 13 November, it's time for Pitchfork Music Festival, which sees the likes of Courtney Barnett, Cate Le Bon, and Dehd take to the Roundhouse stage.
This is just a taste of what's on offer — the full programme is available on the Roundhouse website.
A storied past feat. Pink Floyd and steam trains
A killer autumn events programme isn't the only thing Roundhouse has got going for it, though.
The word "iconic" gets tossed around a lot these days, but how else can you describe a venue that's been part of north London's nightlife scene since 1966 — barring a couple of temporary closures — and played host to Pink Floyd's debut performance on its first night of existence? Simply put, a night at the Roundhouse is a rite of passage for any self-respecting London-based music fan.
Roundhouse's Grade II* listed premises has a similarly rich and storied history, having started life as a former railway engine shed all the way back in 1847. With its circular structure and original Victorian ironwork, it's one of the most visually interesting live music venues in London.
But the main reason to love it? Roundhouse reinvests all profits into its incredible youth programme, which helps thousands of 11-30 year-olds explore creativity in all its forms each year. That means, with every ticket booked and drink bought at the bar, you're helping young people access courses and workshops, as well as studio space and specialist equipment. How incredible is that?!
You'll find Roundhouse on Chalk Farm Road, mere minutes from Chalk Farm tube station (NW1 8EH).
