We’ve found some of London’s best upcoming concerts to get you dancing in aisles and singing along – or musing at the back thoughtfully, if you must.

This little roundup of London’s upcoming gigs will be sure to leave you with all those good music vibes – don’t forget to grab your tickets while you still can!

1. Declan McKenna & Girli at Heaven
The Arches, May 23rd

This 18-year old singer-songwriter shot to fame when he won Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging Talent Competition and now his talents promise an evening of catchy pop in Charing Cross. Supporting Declan McKenna will be pop, punk and rap artist Girli. Book your tickets here.

2. Broken Social Scene
O2 Academy Brixton, May 24th

The Canadian indie-rock super-group are touring for the first time in ages, bringing their expansive sound to our side of the pond on May 24th. Their performances can vary from 6 to 19 members, so there’s no guessing how many Scenesters you’ll be seeing, but expect soaring, shifting tunes from their critically-loved noughties output, and choice previews from their upcoming album. Book your tickets here

3. Hauschka and Poppy Ackroyd at Village Underground
Village Underground, May 30th

The piano genius and experimental musician Hauschka is joined by classically trained musician Poppy Ackroyd to deliver a gig unlike any other. With music manipulation, violins, pianos and two extremely talented musicians at the helm, this is not an evening to be missed. Book your tickets to the show here.

4. Kate Nash Made of Bricks 10th Anniversary
O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, August 9th

Remember singing along to Foundations while (probably) wearing something stripy and necking cider by a skate park? Then spend an evening getting BITT-AHHH with Kate Nash at the 10th anniversary of her album Made of Bricks. She’s added one more performance to her list of sold out dates at The Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Get your tickets here.
