Soho Music Month
June saw the celebrations of Soho Music Month, a free music and culture festival in line with #SoundsLikeLondon, with an incredible line-up of a female-led vinyl market, live music, workshops and live broadcasting.
This year throughout the whole month of June, This Is Soho united with Carnaby to celebrate Soho Music Month. A celebration of the area’s rich music heritage and a free music and culture festival that took place in venues across Soho and Carnaby.
From 1 – 30 June we saw some of the best in established and emerging talent that London has to offer; a hot line up of free live music, workshops and live broadcasting. Soho Music Month is in line with the Mayor of London's Sounds Like London initiative, which champions London's world class music offer. Find out more here.
Plus, we gave some lucky winners the chance to win pair of tickets to exclusive live music sessions, DJ workshops, book signings and panel discussions with the hottest names in the industry.
Did you head down to Berwick Street on Saturday 16 June? The Independent Label Market came down for one day only to curate an exclusive and first ever all-female vinyl market line-up, along with live broadcasting from Soho Radio on the day. You can watch the full story here.
As part of Soho Music Month Mr Londonder (AKA Antony Robbins) held a series of free guided walking tours around the Soho and Carnaby area. Lucky ramblers got the chance to discover which famous music magazine had their HQ on Carnaby, where iconic rockers used to gig, where Ziggy Stardust fell to earth and more.
Your favourite stores got involved with loads of exclusive launches and events throughout June, too. The Blue Posts on Rupert Street held jazz sessions, Hovarda held incredible DJs every Friday and Saturday evening. Private cocktail lounge The Piano Bar Soho - located just off London’s vibrant Soho Square - put on various live events throughout the whole of June in line with Soho Music Month. Ember Yard hosted live music every weekend throughout Soho Music Month including Jazz/Soul singer-songwriter Amy Parker, who perfomed on 28 June.
Exclusively for Soho Music Month, Dirty Bones launched 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. Underground held a whole host of music-themed surprises, plus an Underground Culture Club Q&A on 28 June where a panel of speakers discussed all things Soho and music.
