Roundhouse Rising

Discover New Music

Monday 16 – Sunday 22 February

Our annual festival of emerging music returns with an exciting line-up of live music plus industry masterclasses, panels, workshops and creative projects.

Rising 2015 will see the Roundhouse team up with BBC Introducing, DIY Magazine, Coda and 13 Artists bringing you some of their hottest music picks for the New Year.

Live music highlights include the return of Beth Jeans Houghton as her new incarnation Du Blonde, Welsh indie rockers Pretty Vicious, boundary-breaking FTSE, energetic noise-rock Dubliners Girl Band, electronica pioneer Tim Exile, plus beatboxing from the incredible Shlomo and walking soundsystem Reeps One.

Alongside an incredible line-up of new music, the festival is also dedicated to showcasing our young, emerging talent, with Roundhouse Resident Artists opening the show each night plus young creatives performances taking place throughout Rising. Our Resident DJs will also be carrying on the music ‘til late each night in Made Bar & Kitchen.

The festival also aims to support the next generation of artists with insight into the music business, with Rising Digital Futures offering a ground-breaking day of discussion, demos and debate about the future of music in the digital age plus lots of showcases and other industry events taking place across the festival.
