Preview: Summer Series at Somerset House
Summer Series returns to Somerset House this July for 11 nights of music at the iconic London location. Following the success of the sold out festival last year, this year’s line-up is littered with big names and fantastic talents.
The festival brings an array of global acts to London, featuring French musician St Germain and Italian-English singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti. Grammy Award-nominated Hiatus Kaiyote will open the Summer Series with their multi-dimensional polyrhythmic cinematic sound from Australia.
Joining the diverse festival line-up this year are Mercury Prize-winning Benjamin Clementine, duo Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, Everything Everything and Caravan Palace. Last but not least, James Morrison, Courtney Barnett and Laura Mvula.
The festival will close proceedings with a unique, one-off performance from UNKLE: REDUX. James Lavelle will collaborate with Philip Sheppard to perform the finale set.
Tickets for this years Summer Series are available now via the Somerset House website, along with full listings and further information. All tickets are £29.50 (plus booking fee)
