Each of the one-day festivals, which will run from March–May 2017, will transform the House’s unique Georgian Soho setting to reflect the distinct character of each co-curator.
Guests can expect to hear rising stars (and a few surprise special appearances) perform intimate acoustic gigs in the atmospheric Chapel of St Barnabas, and to dance to sets from renowned and emerging DJs, as well as much more besides.
The first event will be curated by Bestival, and will feature an intimate live gig set in the extraordinary chapel from emerging musicians including Will Varley, along with DJ sets from Rob da Bank, Felix from Basement Jaxx and DJ Shepdog & Serocee.
The Festival Embassy series continues with Eat Your Own Ears, which promises a special show from James Yorkston, a few exciting special live collaborations and a whole bunch of super-hot DJs.
This will be followed by the third micro-festival, Worldwide, which will feature a array of Brownswood Bubblers live including KidKatharsis, Yasmin Lacey, and Three Body Trio, as well as a live Worldwide Radio broadcast .
Festival-goers can purchase tickets for Festival Embassy through a ‘Pay it Forward’ scheme: for every ticket bought, one will be given to participants or graduates of the House’s Employment Academy.
Further tickets will be distributed via the referral agencies that work closely with the charity, and local Soho-based organisations that are also working to break the cycle of homelessness.
