Westfield Kicks-Off Festival Season With a Month Of Outdoor Music Events

Westfield is proud celebrate its fourth year of the Westfield Presents Programme with an exciting run of free events to celebrate music, art, sport and tech between June and September. Perfectly timed with the start of festival season across the UK, Westfield is kicking off with a month-long series of music events this June.

Music Month will transform both Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City into a hub of exciting musical events and festivals. Ranging from a Levi Roots Reggae Weekend to DJ training sessions - there’s something for all age groups and musical tastes.

Prior to this year, Westfield Presents Programme was solely for musical entertainment, but summer 2018 marks the start of the programme of specific months dedicated to themes within sports and culture.

For anyone who is creative, passionate about music or would just like to relax in the sunshine – Westfield’s Music Month will provide the perfect summer’s day out.

The line up 

Westfield will launch Music Month by celebrating strong female talent in the industry by partnering up with the Mayor of London’s ‘Sounds like London’ campaign which aims to support the capital’s grassroots music scene.

The Chestnut Plaza stage at Westfield Stratford City will play host to up-and-coming artists on 2ndJune, with the acts and headliners to be revealed. 

Carnival is coming to Westfield Stratford City’s Levi Roots Reggae Weekend on the 9th and 10th June, promising two days filled with cultural musical performances, DJ sets, children’s entertainment, prize giveaways and tasty food and drink stalls to get taste buds tingling.

London based radio station Westside Radio will be searching for London’s best up-and-coming urban artist at Westfield Stratford City on the 17th June. The winner of the Westside Radio Urban Talent Westfield Kicks-Off Festival Season With a Month Of Outdoor Music EventsSearch will walk away with studio time and their track aired on local radio. The station is also taking over the outdoor stages with competitions and training sessions for budding DJs wanting to put their skills to the test. 

Westfield London will play host to two VIP events with special guest performers (to be announced) on both Friday 22nd June and Saturday 30th June. These up-and-coming artists have been chosen to represent London’s unparalleled, diverse music scene and will launch the centre's new performance space, The Pavilion on Westfield Square.

Myf Ryan, Westfield UK & Europe’s Chief Marketing Officer said: “We wanted to offer a selection of fantastic acts and interactive activities in our outdoor spaces across both centres. Westfield Presents will throw Westfield into centre stage throughout the summer and we are excited to kick off with Music Month. The diversity and range of our events is something we are particularly proud of, there really is something for everyone.”
