LEAF PRESENTS Tickets
LEAF is excited to announce some new additions to the bill for the first London Electronic Arts Festival this November. To celebrate the inaugural LEAF event, Duke Dumont, Le Youth and Monki will play the opening party in association with Bugged Out at the LEAF HUB in the Shoreditch Electric Light Station.
One of 2013’s breakout successes, Duke Dumont will be joined by Le Youth and Monki, bringing his own unique West Coast sound to London, to kick things off at the LEAF HUB on 7th November and ensure the first ever LEAF begins with a bang.
Closing the festival, LEAF is proud to present Beardyman at The Oval Space on 10th November, the innovative musician, performer and consummate showman who will bring his Beardytron to London, following a rapt reception at TED earlier this year.
In between these two shows, Chris Liebing will play an extended set at a secret east London warehouse location at a party in partnership with London Warehouse Events and Diplo will headline a show at The Oval Space, Bethnal Green following straight after the sold out Major Lazer show at O2 Academy Brixton. The event will start at midnight and run through to 4.30am.
* PLEASE NOTE VENUE CHANGE: OMAR SOULEYMAN WILL NOW BE APPEARING AT THE LAUNDRY, E2 ON SUNDAY 10 NOVEMBER AND NOT AT THE OVAL SPACE AS PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED
Tickets for all these events are on sale now on Aloud.com
Celebrating the cultural significance of electronic music, LEAF will focus on how the genre has influenced visual art, film and live music. At the festival hub, there will be keynote talks from the legendary Giorgio Moroder, New Order in conversation about the recording of their 1989 Technique album and William Orbit on the science of sound. Also at the LEAF HUB will be an exclusive event for badge holders with Boiler Room, presenting Eats Everything, MK and Rob da Bank – all appearing on the platform for the very first time.
LEAF is created and curated by Bestival founder and BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank, and music pioneer and International Music Summit creator Ben Turner, in partnership with SJM Concerts, the UK’s leading independent concert promoter. The event is partnered with Point Blank – the award-winning music production school based in East London, an epicentre of music and technology innovation, and a natural home for LEAF.
Across the capital, LEAF will stage shows in some of London’s most revered live music venues and warehouse spaces including Diplo at The Oval Space on 9 November, and Trentemoller at The Forum. There will be additional events of all shapes and sizes, largely in the surrounding east London area, including a performance by The Bloody Beetroots at Village Underground on 7 November, as well as a DJ set by Giorgio Moroder at Oval Space, which is a UK exclusive. This will be his first appearance in the UK since his work on the Daft Punk album and his now legendary DJ set for Red Bull Music Academy in New York this summer.
Entry to the LEAF HUB is via a four-day pass or a day pass, with stand-alone ticketed events.
"London has defined a genre. It may not have invented electronic music, but it gave it a global focal point for decades. Its influence from DJ-s to parties, flyers to technology platforms has been pivotal to the durability and the inventiveness of this scene. LEAF aims to bring all of this together for the very first time in the capital. This is our way of giving something.
