Glastonbury’s Block9 announce London music project plans
Block9 have revealed plans to launch a music project that will open in London in 2018 before touring around Europe
Block9, the team behind Glastonbury venues the Genosys, NYC Downlow and London Underground have announced plans to launch a music and art project in London that will eventually tour internationally.
“We’re planning a brand new, stand-alone structure that can arrive in a city centre location, and is a piece of artwork in its own right from the outside, as well as a whole other world inside,” co-founder Stephen Gallagher tells DJ Mag. “Creatively it’s early doors, but it takes the size and scale of the NYC Downlow, Genosys and London Underground, and mashes all of those together to make the mother****r of all experiences.”
Speaking about venture he said, “We’d love it to be on the Southbank, or the Royal Docks [in the London Borough of Newham]. That’s an area that is going through a massive change at the moment, which fits the stuff that we do.”
Gallagher also told DJ Mag that Block9 are looking to take the installation to other UK cities, across Europe and possibly even to Burning Man in Nevada.
