In one of London’s most spectacular settings, Summer Series at Somerset House with American Express will run this year from 10 – 20 July 2014.
London’s intimate live music festival will play host to a typically eclectic and impressive array of headline artists alongside hotly tipped acts.
Opening on the first night will be London-based trio, Daughter. Fronted by Elena Tonra, their haunting melodies will set the tone for a programme of beautifully atmospheric live gigs. Next up will be Dublin-quartet Kodaline who’ll continue proceedings with their powerful blend of emotive rock.
Taking to the stage on the third evening of Summer Series is angelic Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel with her ethereal tones.
On 13 July, the incomparably outrageous Australian collective The Cat Empire touch down for their Summer Series debut for an evening guaranteed to make everyone dance.
Summer Series will then welcome the almighty Kelis to the courtyard stage. Known for years of chart-dominating songs including the infamous ‘Milkshake’ and thrilling, boundary-pushing music, Kelis will be bringing her raw and soulful show with her glittering hits to Somerset House.
The following evening will see the biggest-selling new British act of 2013, Bastille, arrive for an intimate show in their home city.
On 16 July, London fans will be delighted to see Glaswegian rockers Franz Ferdinand headline the evening’s events with their exuberant and eclectic indie rock. Scottish synthpop trio Chvrches will continue the Summer Series’ proceedings on 17 July.
Hugely talented singer/songwriter of the moment Sam Smith will join the line-up for an epic evening on 18 July.
Next up, hotly tipped chart-toppers Clean Bandit will headline on 19 July. Having had huge success with their number one hit ‘Rather Be’, the four-piece will bring their addictive dance-pop delights to Somerset House.
Headlining the grand finale of the 2014 Summer Series will be insurmountable electro R&B adventurers Little Dragon.
