A new way
to discover music

31 Oct - 1 Nov

Sound Unbound

The Barbican
Classical Weekender

Sound Unbound is a weekend festival that releases classical music from its traditional confines: you can tap into any of the short sessions in our Conservatory, foyers or concert halls, engage in debates around the genre, take a pint in and live tweet the concert, or go all night with a Nonclassical DJ set and our Classical Overnighter.
