Coming Soon: Soho Music Month
This June, celebrate Soho Music Month, a free music and culture festival with an incredible line-up of a female-led vinyl market, live music, workshops and live broadcasting.
Get ready. This year for the whole month of June, This Is Soho unites with Carnaby to celebrate Soho Music Month. A celebration of the area’s rich music heritage, join in with our free music and culture festival taking place in venues across Soho and Carnaby.
Join us from 1 – 30 June for events highlighting some of the best in established and emerging talent that London has to offer; expect a hot line up of free live music, workshops and live broadcasting.
Be sure to put Saturday 16 June in your diary – as part of the festival and to celebrate women in music, Independent Label Market are heading down to Berwick Street for one day only to curate an exclusive and first ever all-female vinyl market line-up. Female founders of independent record labels will take over Berwick Street with a selection of vinyl stalls selling the very best of their roaster. Be sure to check back here when we reveal the incredible line up of labels who will be there during the day. Also, don’t miss local independent radio station Soho Radio who will be popping up at the market with an exclusive live broadcast. Stay tuned for the full line-up of DJs who will be providing the soundtrack the day.
Want to get under the skin of Soho and Canraby’s music scene? Be sure to join us for a free guided walking tour exclusively for Soho Music Month. Find out which famous music magazine had their HQ on Carnaby, discover where iconic rockers used to shop and gig in the area, or find yourself recreating the infamous (What’s the Story?) Morning Glory Oasis album cover on Berwick Street. Check back here to find out how to sign up for a free pair of tickets to the walking tours.
Your favourite stores will be getting involved with loads of exclusive launches and events throughout June, too. Be sure to head to The Duck & Rice on Berwick Street for jazz sessions and to Sandqvist for an in-store performance from Swedish singer-songwriter Natali Felicia. Exclusively for Soho Music Month, Dirty Bones will be launching their limited edition Doo Wop cocktail. A homage to one of the influential female artists who has shaped Dirty Bones’ iconic music ethos, it’s named after Lauryn Hill’s first solo hit. Be sure to order a round when you’re visiting Dirty Bones in Soho this June.
Check in on Carnaby for a whole host of other going’s on this June, from the Soho Music Month hub and exhibition space, ‘PLATFORM LDN’ to live music every Thursday evening in the form of the Newburgh Quarter Sessions. Click here to find out more.
