LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts/ Madame Jojo's) - For two days in September, Soho celebrates its rebirth as the hub of London's live music scene!
Over 50 music acts from a wide range of genres will perform in and around Soho on September 16th and 17th, in up to 20 of the area's finest venues, filling Soho with that unmistakable buzz of excitement familiar since the Fifties and Sixties.
Ticket-holders will receive a pass enabling them to wander from venue to venue choosing which acts they want to see. A predominant venue will be Madame Jojo's, which holds a genuine place in the history of popular music reaching back to the Mod years and beyond.
HEADLINERS celebrates London's love of music, and at a time when leading Soho music venues are being closed down, will re-ignite the area's music scene with two days of noise, fun and talent.
It will showcase the diversity of London's broad music culture, featuring the best in pop, alternative, dance and more, performed across venues that lie on many Londoners' doorsteps, some of which are rarely used for live music performance. It will also be a reminder of just how many vibrant live music venues do actually operate in this location.
A wristband system will be used enabling music fans to move between venues seeing as many different bands as they want. Chart-topping acts will rub shoulders with breaking new bands, and up and coming talent will find themselves sharing stages with the finest singer-songwriters around. The event will also include a number of impromptu free gigs in both established and more innovative, unexpected venues.
