Boiler Room curates an evening of contemporary UK live music with performances by six rising stars, streamed from the Barbican Hall.

From brand-new emerging artists through to the Mercury-nominated, and spanning the sounds of R&B, hip hop, rap, soul and beyond, the line-up includes self-taught musician described as 50% water/50% music, BERWYN; formerly one-third of Hawk House, Demae who creates soothing soul celebrating black joy and empowerment; musician and producer Léa Sen whose soft vocals embellish acoustic guitar-based songs; artist, producer and multi-instrumentalist Mansur Brown who runs the label Amai Records; boundary-blurring rap goddess NAYANA IZ; and shining light in the UK’s music scene Ojerime, with her own brand of 90s R&B-inspired gems.
Connecting club culture to the wider world on screen and through parties, film and video, Boiler Room has played host to some of the best DJs and musicians in the world, and supported artists from the underground up.
