Roundhouse Rising Festival – 2017 programme announced

Now in its seventh year, Roundhouse Rising Festival is the Roundhouse's festival for new music taking place from Saturday 11th to Sunday 19th February 2017.
Following the resounding success of their 2016 event, Rising Festival 2017 will expand to nine days of live music from the industry's most exciting emerging talents, plus a wide-ranging selection of industry panels, workshops, demos and talks for those seeking a route into the music industry.
Rising Festival has paved the way for successful young artists like Prides, Eliza and the Bear, Jacob Banks, The Magic Gang, Hooton Tennis Club, Pretty Vicious and many more. For the first time ever, Roundhouse Rising will celebrate the success of its alumni with a headline show in the Roundhouse's iconic Main Space from rapper Little Simz, who started her journey in the Roundhouse Studios.
Further highlights include an evening hosted by BBC Music Introducing, the album launch for Rising Sounds 2017, performances from Glaswegian four-piece Catholic Action, afrobeat artist and MOBO nominee Mista Silva, Roundhouse Resident Artists on-the-rise Edges and hip hop collective SumoChief plus a clubnight bringing together tastemakers from around the globe for a DJ soundsystem soundclash.
