Emerge Festival is the coolest event of the year for culture vultures and night owls.
Taking place on the last weekend in September (Friday 27 and Saturday 28), Emerge Festival will showcase some of the UK’s best upcoming talent inside the city’s most iconic museums and heritage spaces.
With just one ticket, festival goers have access to dozens of events in over 40 different venues – and tickets start from just £15.
There are all sorts of exciting events happening throughout the duration of the festival, including the first ever silent disco on Tower Bridge, a pop-up exhibit from The Vagina Museum at The Jewish Museum, and of course a late-night DJ set from London soul collective Jungle inside the Natural History Museum’s iconic Hintze Hall.
Taking place on Saturday 28, the DJ set will be proceeded by a fascinating collaboration with Lost Lectures. With talks from leading scientists and celebrated creatives, they’ll cover topics such as the communication that makes us human and debunking the dodo. There’ll also be a special performance from Bellatrix, twice World beatboxing champion, because why on earth not!
Once your mind has been blown and the beats have been boxed, you’ll be boogying beneath Hope the whale with a drink in your hand, or dancing in the moonlight beside Luke Jerram’s gorgeous ‘Museum of the Moon’ installation.
Doors will open at 6.50pm, with talks starting at 7.10pm. Jungle will kick off their set at 9.30pm, but we recommend arriving as early as possible if you want guaranteed entry!
🚨 And there’s a nice bonus if you’re over 30, as Emerge are offering you 50% off Friday tickets. ID will be required. 🚨
