Band will kick off six weeks of live music at the heart of the station
Guillemots are set to launch a new summer music festival at London St Pancras International railway station.
The Birmingham-based indie rockers will perform tracks from their last album ‘Walk The River’ tomorrow (June 15) at 6pm as part of a unique new programme of events that will see live music staged every day in the revamped station.
The Station Sessions takes place for the next six weeks of the summer, and will see around 100 bands and artists perform across various stages throughout the station. Acts will perform each weekday from 6-7pm Monday to Friday on the main stage, every Tuesday lunchtime between 12.30-1.30pm at the Sourced Market fringe stage, every Monday evening between 7.30-8.30pm at the Searcy’s fringe stage and then every Thursday evening at the Betjeman Arms fringe stage.
Organisers predict that with up to a million people traveling through St Pancras each week, the Station Sessions festival will find a bigger audience than Glastonbury, the Isle Of Wight, Reading and Leeds and the V Festival combined.
The event is taking place in support of the Prince’s Trust, with its spokesman Julian Barrell saying: “Funds raised at this incredibly exciting event will help The Prince’s Trust to change young lives here in the UK. With youth unemployment high and the jobs market uncertain, there has never been a better time to help us get disadvantaged young people into work, education or training.”
Line-ups are still being confirmed, but visit Station Sessions for updates.
