Roundhouse Rising is back in 2018 and has revealed the latest details of its line-up. London’s historic Roundhouse is a staple of the capital and has been part of the city’s musical soul but also a creative hub for young people. The 2018 festival will be supported by YouTube, who will be the headline partner for Roundhouse Rising and host of the Artist Toolkit Day in the YouTube Space London.
Roundhouse Rising festival is all about providing top quality shows, which are also affordable. 2018 will see the likes of Little Simz’ Welcome to Wonderland Part II but also a 1Xtra grime takeover, plus a sound clash, workshops, panels, talks and much more.
