Over the course of four days, AMP London is set to take over the capital with over 40 live acts filling 14 different venues, whilst being complemented with two days of talk and discussion. Over the past years, Annie Mac has brought some of the finest acts to primetime radio and festival stages across the world, whilst the latest iteration, being carefully curated by Mac herself, is an inaugural event with a stellar lineup.

AMP Sounds took over London throughout February 2018 and encompassed a selection of raves, showcase events, and big one-off shows featuring the best of AMP past and present. As the event’s successor, AMP London will prove a vital music event for 2019.

Just some of those featured on the line up include: Brits Critics Choice winner Sam Fender, BBC Sound of 2019 nominated Mahalia, hotly-tipped-for-2019 Puma Blue, Theophilus London (whose show will be a London exclusive), Australian Amyl & The Sniffers, grime’s finest Chip, as well as Jimothy Lacoste, Koffee, Kojey Radical, and, of course, Annie Mac herself. Showcasing a range of the finest upcoming and established artists across a multitude of genres, AMP London will encompass intimate underplays with all acts playing in venues far smaller than their usual tour stops (Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, XOYO and Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, for example).

AMP London is an accumulation of what we’ve done for years”, says Annie. “Prioritising music discovery and supporting bands and artists, AMP LONDON aims to celebrate and consolidate London’s globally renowned music scene, inspire conversations around music, and, ultimately create something that is culturally impactful and invigorating for music lovers of multiple genres.”

AMP London also boasts the (already sold out) Printworks rave and a closing party (from which all proceeds will be donated to London based charity, Art Against Knives), whilst other shows are set to have a secret line-up revealed later this month.

The daytime talks feature a discussion around the future and evolution of today’s music artists and industry, covering a variety of timely topics. The first, on Friday 28th March, will be dedicated to ‘The Industry’, while the second, on Saturday 29th March, will focus on ‘The Next Generation’ – both with feature panels of leading figures from the music industry and youth culture.

AMP London runs from 27th-30th March and you can get your hands on tickets here.
