Summer Series At Somerset House Announced
Beady Eye, Pro Green, Blondie and more for London courtyard shows
Summer Series at Somerset House, set in the spectacular courtyard of one of London’s most renowned public buildings, is a unique event in the summer’s live music calendar.
This year's season runs from 7 to 17 July, when London’s premiere open air venue will host an unparalleled melting pot of talent - including shows by two of modern music’s most iconic personalities in Beady Eye’s Liam Gallagher and Blondie’s Debbie Harry.
There'll be celebratory performances by a clutch of 2010’s breakthrough new artists Professor Green, Stornoway, Aloe Blacc, Ellie Goulding and Hurts, as well as one-off special shows by Imelda May and Lamb - all book-ended by performances from American alt-rock royalty EELS and My Morning Jacket.
In addition, Aloe Blacc’s headline show will feature special guests and emerging artists as part of Somerset House’s What Next project. What Next invites young people from across London to collaborate in workshops focusing on writing new music.
