Here's what fans need to know about the legendary North London venue.
Next month, Camden continues its world-renowned reputation for shining a light on new bands and artists. Jigsaw Festival is right around the corner and we’re absolutely buzzing for it.
What’s Jigsaw Festival then?
Hot hot hot on the heels of their wildly successful season of Spotlight shows back in January, Camden’s most stylish live venue Camden Assembly is giving the music world another month-long festival of live music.
At a time of year when traditionally live music in the capital can take a bit of nosedive as both artists and hedonists alike head to the fields for their summer festivities, Camden Assembly is deliberately bucking the trend thanks to this perfectly crafted line up, performing nightly throughout all of August.
The venue and their team are quickly establishing themselves as one of London’s leading new music tastemakers, pairing up with some of the best music brands and curators to bring the finest emerging talent currently hitching a lift this side of the M25.
James Anniballi – the talent booker at Camden Assembly told us;
“We created Jigsaw festival as a stepping stone for acts on the way to major festivals next summer. It’s a taster of being part of a huge line-up but all housed under one roof and for the chance to see them up close for a low ticket price too.
Looking forward to Indigo Lo, Ginger and the Ghost, Pupils of the Clock, Cold Callers, Nakala, Tiana Major9, Xam Volo”
So what better way to take a break from the melting streets of the heatwave than to grab a freezing cold beer or craft ale in the Camden Assembly’s bar and discovering truly the best new acts touring the UK today?
Jigsaw kicks off in style on 1st August with TicketWeb X Jigsaw Presents. A special free entry night to start the festival with a bang, featuring performances from:
