The Barbican Presents: Darkstar, Richard Dawson, Sivu + More

An eclectic bill of experimental music at London’s Oval Space

"On-paper darlings with just the right amount of heat."

- Pitchfork (on Darkstar)
While making a career in music is becoming increasingly difficult, the UK’s underground scene continues to thrive. This eclectic bill shows off the diversity of that scene, bringing together producers, MCs and musicians united by their grassroots approach. Electronic duo Darkstar top the bill with a performance of new album Foam Island, with Richard Dawson, rapper Afrikan Boy, Sivu, Holly Macve and grime MC SNE in support. Andy Fearn of Sleaford Mods brings the evening to a bouncing climax with his seldom seen DJ set. With all proceeds from ticket sales donated to fund work experience and training placements in the creative industries for young East Londoners, it's a great opportunity to cut loose for a good cause. Over 16s only. Valid ID required. Standing space only.
