Roundhouse Rising returns for 2019


Roundhouse Rising returns to the Camden venue in London in October to spotlight new sounds and showcase emerging talent. From Tuesday, October 15th to Tuesday October, 29th the ninth edition of the festival will present shows that have previously showcased the then-emerging talents of Little Simz, Tom Misch, Dom McAllister, The Magic Gang, Hooton Tennis Club and Pretty Vicious.

GAIKA will headline on Tuesday 29th October when the Warp label artist will be joined by a ten-piece jazz ensemble led by composer Jason Yarde in the main Roundhouse room. The more intimate Sackler Space will provide the stage for Æ MAK, Big Zuu, Sinead O’ Brien and Colossal Squid - AKA Adam Betts and Kai Whiston.

Liverpool’s genre-defying electronic experimentalists Stealing Sheep will be supported by urban pop artist and producer Eva-Lina in collaboration with The F Word, a female collective promoting gender parity in music. 60s inspired indie band Weird Milk, rappers HMD, Priincess Kemz and R.A.E, soulful singer-songwriters Anaïs and Martha Da’Ro and Roundhouse Resident Artist IORA will also perform.

Wednesday, October 16th will see the Rising Sounds album launch featuring live sets from the album made by 10 emerging musicians age 18 - 25 paired up with a professional producer to record a track. There will be two specialist Transmission shows: Deeper Cuts with Nihilism and Chelsea Carmichael playing new modern jazz and left field electronic music, plus The Green Room Live with Weyland McKenzie.

This year’s Roundhouse Rising has a fresh crop of partners such as BBC Introducing in London, Brighton’s The Great Escape Festival, global artist agency Paradigm, female collective The F Word and Bucks Music Group. Also involved are Gilles Peterson and Brownswood Music’s new talent discovery agency, Future Bubblers and Brighton’ 13 Artists, each contributing their musical taste to the curated line-up.
