Tin Pan Alley Music Festival Announced
London's legendary music street to host a one day, multi-venue fest…
London's Tin Pan Alley is Europe’s premiere music street. Filled with specialist music shops, it is the bastion of songwriters, studios, guitars and all things revered by those who are passionate about music.
Pretty much every music great has performed or recorded in Tin Pan Alley - The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and Jimi Hendrix have all made music history in this street and the Sex Pistols notoriously recorded their first demos there when they lived above number 6..
The Tin Pan Alley Music Festival takes place on Saturday, September 17, and aims to celebrate the capital’s musical legacy and continue tradition by showcasing current rhythm & blues artists, diverse bands and singer songwriters alongside up and coming bands.
Artists so far confirmed include Mercury nominated Ed Harcourt, Celtic legends The Popes, and astounding one man band Lewis Floyd Henry fresh from Ray Davies’ Meltdown, along with 40 other established and up and coming acts.
A special event to be announced shortly will also take place at midnight to commemorate the 41st anniversary of the death of Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix died in London during the early hours of 18th September 1970.
The completely independent one-day festival takes place in three venues which lay in the vicinity of Tin Pan Alley: The Borderline, The 12Bar Club and The Alleycat Bar.
One ticket will give music lovers access to a 12 hour marathon of gigs at all three venues from 2pm until 2am.
Tickets are £10 and are available online from HMV Tickets, Ticketweb, See Tickets and in person from all participating venues.
