This week sees the Summer Series kick off at London's Somerset House.
Starting with nine-time Grammy winner Norah Jones on July 6, New York rockers The Candles have been drafted in to warm up proceedings, followed by national treasure David Rodigan in support of Damian "Jr Gong" Marley on the following night. Amongst recently announced support acts, Moses Sumney supports The Cinematic Orchestra, with British band Sloes also opening for shimmering synth-pop vets Goldfrapp.
At the midway point, a clear standout date sees The Robert Glasper Experiment roll into town with Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Laura Mvula and UK soul legend Omar, for what promises to be a jazz-tinged, soulful evening of surprises. Peep the full line-up below and check on ticket availability here.
