Underground music platform Boiler Room will be hosting its first ever festival- a 4 day event running from Wednesday, October 9th to Saturday the 12th Copeland Park in Peckham, South London.
The Boiler Room festival promises to push the boundaries of a traditional festival - there will be no headliners, the line up will feature emerging artists from contemporary jazz, rap, bass and club, with each day of the festival focusing on a different sound. The organisers state “This isn’t about the headliners - it’s about the next gen. It's not about any one artist, it's about the communities they thrive in.”
The Boiler Room, an independent music platform started life in 2010 broadcasting from a webcam in a London warehouse - opening a keyhole to the city’s underground. DIY at its finest; raw, uncut, homemade. Since their modest beginning Boiler Room has featured over 4,000 performances, by more than 5,000 artists, spanning 150 cities and now they are hosting a huge 4 day festival, right here, in Peckham.
The lineup which you can find here aims to attract up to 20,000 people and will be broadcast live online. Expect lots of exciting artists from the underground music scene, CEO Blaise Bellville says they are "Partnering with the emerging DJs, artists and collectives who are shaping contemporary club culture, and giving them the biggest stage we can."
