After a month away to breathe and plan our next steps, we want to say thank you to our wonderful community who made this summer truly special.
Musical madness, immersive performances, and multi-disciplinary showcases of London's finest emerging artists.
Let's look back at some of the magical moments we created together!
Our First Festival
Farrago Festival, in July, was our biggest event to date and you guys came through to support in droves!
We came together in the sunshine to celebrate grassroots music, art and performance, with 15+ live music acts, visual art workshops, and a unique fashion/performance showcase.
Shoutout to the following communities for helping us make this happen; this was such a great start to the summer.
House of Donyi Fat Llama BurstLDN Groove Verse
Our First Conference - Amplify Your Music
Together, we created a space for London's independent artists to network, share and collaborate.
The best part: the event was totally free which meant that any artist could access it.
This was a truly special moment for Farrago as we dove much deeper into the industry than any of our previous events.
We'll definitely be doing this again some time, so stay in the loop!
Regular Music at Ninety One Living Room
All throughout the summer, we hosted weekly sessions in the sunshine of Brick Lane, showcasing 30+ artists from jazz to hip-hop.
Authentic musical vibes connecting with strangers on the streets - we love it!
Flash mobs, pop-ups, and fun vibes out in London.
With such a busy summer of back-to-back events, we needed to get creative and spread the word about the amazing events we had planned.
So what did we do? - Surprised commuters with an 8-piece brass band in Brixton underground station - Hosted a pop-up fashion show for the public to strut on the Millenium Bridge - Our first pop-up party in front of Tate Modern in promotion for Sound of London
Our First Multi-Day Event - Sound of London
Sound of London was our opportunity to tell a story about London's underground music scene. Through 4 events in 4 unique venues, collaborating with various communities to each showcase their own slice of the scene.
We're not going to lie: this one was pretty stressful from behind the scenes! A mad amount of logistics for what felt like such a short week!
But, as always, the artists' performances shone through and made this one of our community's highlights of our summer (stay tuned for performance videos and more).
Huge thank you to all our partners at this festival; without you there was no way we could try pull something like this off xD
Big, big thanks to Dunyadan Sesler, Five Points Project, Lotus Nova, Night Fund & Bodily Community
We're taking a step back from our events for the rest of this year, but we've got big plans in the works for 2024.
The community so far, which has grown rapidly around Farrago with over 3,000+ attendees, has been humbling, and we are inspired every single day by each of you.
Creativity is pouring out of the seams of the underground, and we are only just scratching the surface...
