London gigs, listings and tickets
London has been home to some of the worlds most influential bands. Ranging from eighties legends Adam and the Ants to Grammy winner Adele, the mighty Florence and the Machine to Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin to The Libertines, and Manfred Mann to Mount Kimbie and Dizzie Rascal to Daughter, London has gifted the world with some of the most exciting and forward thinking artists of our times.
It comes as no surprise then that London is literally crammed with exciting gigs and live music throughout the city, ranging from huge megastars playing Electric Brixton or Olympic Park, to the up and coming and underground artists at more intimate venues like The Underworld and Roundhouse.
The London gigs kicking off this year that we’re hungry for include the Boogie Summer Gathering, an event in a secret forest location this summer. The Stanton Sessions with a barbecue at the Colour Factory is the perfect afternoon for any breaks fan. Metal fans will love Pantera, Megadeth, Slayer and Lamb of God tributes all in one night.
We’ve only scratched the surface here. There are tonnes of gigs in London that look simply mindblowing this year. Ready to check out some live music in London? Of course, you are! Check out what’s on near you now.
