Roundhouse Rising Festival

Supported by YouTube

We’re giving you the chance to discover your next favourite music artist. Proudly supported by YouTube, Roundhouse Rising Festival is back for its ninth year and is bigger than ever.

Fresh from supporting Gorillaz on their European tour, Roundhouse alumni and hip-hop heavyweight Little Simz returns to headline the festival. The British hip-hop star will curate a festival day of live performances from a diverse line up of some of the most exciting musical and visual artists from around the globe.

Catch intimate live performances from the next big acts, including folk artist Blair Dunlop (winner of the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award). BBC Music Introducing provides a night of free music, our DJ Soundclash crowns the Rising Soundclash Champion 2018 and we launch the Rising Sounds 2018 Album.

The festival will also give you the chance to get ahead in the music industry with a host of panels, workshops, demos and talks from the big names in the business, hosted at the YouTube Space in Kings Cross.
