Orchestral “celebration of bass music” announced for Barbican in London

London’s Barbican will host an “orchestral celebration of bass music” to celebrate 15 years of the UKF platform. 

OrchestRAVE will take place on Saturday 20th July 2024, and feature the Guildhall Session Orchestra alongside drum & bass selector Raiser. Tickets are priced at £34.50, and available to buy now.

On the night orchestra and DJ will be supported by live percussion and rhythm sections. Music from luminaries such as The Prodigy and Hybrid Minds will feature on the set list, alongside reinterpretations of tracks by the likes of Nero, Flux Pavilion, Camo & Crooked, Koven, Mefjus, K Motionz, Goddard and Emily Makis.

In 2023, The Barbican hosted the critically acclaimed OrchestraRAM showcase, a collaboration with Andy C’s seminal record label, RAM, which marked its 40th anniversary at the event. The same year the venue also welcomed the likes of Touching Bass and northern England queer-led DIY collective Gut Level.
