City Showcase Returns To London
24th Apr 2008 | 12:48
For five days last June, over a million people flocked to central London to witness 400 artists across all music genres perform at 35 different venues.
From midday to midnight Londoners mingled, browsed, shopped and listened to great live music at London’s City Showcase.
From the 2nd to 6th June this year its back for a sixth consecutive year and promises to be one to remember...
Renowned for showcasing the best in new music, City Showcase has previously played host to Amy Winehouse, Newton Faulkner, Razorlight, Scouting For Girls and Ray LaMontagne.
Featuring amongst this year’s hotly tipped acts are the “infectious and memorable” Twin Atlantic, East London metallers We Are The Ocean, Nashville’s finest The Young Republic, Irish ‘rockabilly’ singer/songwriter Wallis Bird and The Law, who last year toured the UK with fellow Scottish indie kids, The View.
Also fresh from supporting The Wombats in Germany, South African chart toppers The Parlotones have recently added their name to the growing line up.
The not-for-profit festival sees many London stores and venues open their doors to live music. With venues ranging from Carnaby Street’s hippest fashion boutiques to The London Astoria, the locations for the five day event promise to be as diverse as its many artists.
