The Roundhouse Rising returns to the famous Camden venue, the Roundhouse, for the 9th year running. With multiple events from Wednesday 21st February until Sunday 4th March, Roundhouse Rising will be playing host to the likes of Little Simz presenting ‘Welcome to Wonderland part II’, Jazz re:freshed, and workshops, panels, and The Artist Toolkit Day housed by YouTube in their YouTube Space London.
Returning for her second year of headlining the event, Little Simz comes straight off the back of supporting Gorillaz on their European tour. The British rapper will be curating an evening at the Roundhouse, which last year included as guest the likes of Mick Jenkins, Stormzy, and Kano amongst others.
Behind the big names headlining Roundhouse Rising 2018, the support that will be given to smaller artist provides invaluable opportunity for exposure and fans the chance to see the next big artists. Two acts featuring this year playing intimate performances are Blair Dunlop, winner of the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, and indie-folk artist Ailbhe Reddy, touted as one of the ones to watch in 2018 and already making waves in folk circles and beyond.
Not only providing for the discovery of smaller artists, Roundhouse Rising 2018 presents the chance to brush shoulders with those in the music industry, hosting a series of talks, panels and workshops at the YouTube space in Kings Cross.
