The millions of commuters, tourists and visitors to St Pancras International this summer are set to be entertained for free at a new music festival. Starting on 15 June with a performance by the BRIT and Mercury nominated band, Guillemots, the Station Sessions Festival opens at St. Pancras International, and runs for six weeks until 29 July.
The Station Sessions Festival is the only music festival of its kind in the UK - with new and emerging artists performing daily at the heart of London’s most iconic station. Over nearly 50 days, around 100 musicians will perform on a main stage and a series of fringe stages located around the station.
Guillemots will launch the festival on Wednesday 15 June, starting at 6.30pm, with tracks from their new album, Walk the River. After a break of nearly three years the band has returned in 2011 with a new tour and a number of festival appearances, including Glastonbury later this month.
With up to 1 million people travelling through St Pancras International every week, the Station Sessions Festival will reach more ‘festival goers’ than Glastonbury, the Isle of Wight, Reading and Leeds and V Festival put together.
There will be performances every evening on the main stage, Monday - Friday, between 6-.00pm-7.00pm, every Tuesday lunchtime between 12.30pm-1.30pm at the Sourced Market fringe stage, every Monday evening between 7.30pm-8.30pm at the Searcys fringe stage and then every Thursday evening at the Betjeman Arms fringe stage between 7.30pm-8.30pm.‘Like’ our Award Winning facebook page and be entered into a draw to win 1000 CDs including rare, signed and promotional copies here!
