Join us for a free music festival of unexpected sounds in unexpected places

Charterhouse SquareFestival
Sound Unbound

Music will burst from the Barbican and out across Culture Mile’s architectural gems with a line-up of artists for whom the boundaries between classical and contemporary, experimental and jazz are blurred – or never even existed in the first place.

Kick back to the music of Steve Reich on the Barbican Lakeside. Discover the symphony that changed music forever with Stephen Fry. Watch the Academy Award-winning film The Artist with music performed by a live orchestra. And hear the music of Philip Glass reimagined by electronica producer Max Cooper.

From authentic medieval sounds to hypnotic minimalist masterpieces, there are over 100 sessions, installations and more to explore – and you can tap into any of them for free.
