A performance at last years Sound Unbound playing the trumpet.

Sound Unbound

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

Music will burst from the concert hall 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. Soak up ambient sounds in Farringdon’s super-club fabric. Embark on a musical walking trail around the historic backstreets of Smithfield. And let the soothing sounds of Gregorian chant wash over you in the intimate chapel of The Charterhouse.

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.
