This spring and summer, Southbank Centre presents a line-up of pioneering musical minds from across the globe.  

In May, the Royal Festival Hall plays host to the world premiere of Actress x Stockhausen Sin {x} II - the latest large-scale work from British contemporary electronic artist Actress (Darren J. Cunningham), and his Artificial Intelligence recording and performance group, Young Paint. 

Founder of iconic label Mo’Wax, James Lavelle returns to Southbank Centre with an Easter weekend takeover, featuring a special performance from UNKLE and an exclusive Concrete Lates, headlined and curated by the trip-hop pioneer himself.

Hailed as one of the 20th century’s undisputed masters of the sarod, Amjad Ali Khan and sons Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash present an evening of new and timeless Indian classical music interpretations.
