In addition, Aloe Blacc’s headline show will feature special guests and emerging artists as part of Somerset House’s What Next project. What Next invites young people from across London to collaborate in workshops focusing on writing new music. Now in its third year, the project is being expanded with the launch of a new opportunity for four emerging young songwriters to develop their material with live musicians, mentor support, studio space and access to recording equipment and engineers. What Next is run by Somerset House in association with Rockschool, Bigga Fish, the University of Westminster and Metropolis Music.
