PureGold builds on the musical successes that Goldsmiths alumni have enjoyed in recent years.
This includes the Mercury Prize for James Blake, a chart-topping album for Katy B and an Olivier Award for War Horse and Curious Incident composer Adrian Sutton.
For the 5th year running, we return to London’s Southbank Centre for our PureGold launch. With two stages featuring bands and singer-songwriters, choral and piano works, jazz, multi-keyboards and sitar, cutting edge digital manipulation and new instrument devices, plus up-and-coming artists currently featured on the NX Records mixtape.
Free event, from 4pm in The Clore Ballroom on Bank Holiday Monday 2 May. For listings of the rest of the events in the Music Department and PureGold, see the events feed below.
Previous artists and musicians who have performed at the PureGold festival include: Ultraísta vocalist FEMME, two of The Guardian's bands of the day, Bat and Ball and Semi Precious.
PureGold events continue from May to July at The Albany (Deptford) and on the Goldsmiths campus in New Cross, south east London.
PureGold forms part of a summer of Goldsmiths Degree Shows across the capital, including exhibitions and shows from the Departments of Art, Theatre and Performance, and Design.
