Pan Daijing & JASS to Perform at London’s Southbank Centre

Pan Daijing & JASS to Perform at London’s Southbank Centre

After a multi-million-pound refurbishment and with a new 2 am licence, the Queen Elizabeth Hall at London’s Southbank Centre will begin hosting electronic dance nights when it re-opens on April 9th.

Titled ‘Concrete Lates’ the inaugural event in the newly announced club night series, which has been curated by Boiler Room, will welcome Berlin-based techno artists, Pan Daijing & JASS.

The choice of music for the event has been inspired by German photographer Andreas Gurskly who will be showcasing a retrospective of his work at the adjacent Hayward Gallery complete with a specially commissioned soundtrack. Those attending either event will be granted access to both, however, Gurskly’s exhibit will close at 1 am.

Taking place in the foyers of the Southbank Centre the new building and events space will operate at 1,000 capacity and will host lives shows, gigs and electronic dance club nights.

Amy Lamé, London’s Night Czar said of the upcoming club nights;

It is brilliant that Southbank Centre is throwing open its doors and creating a new club night which will welcome some of the most celebrated DJs and live electronic acts.”

Whilst Bengi Unsal, Southbank Centre’s senior contemporary music programmer, said:

Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room have always been spaces for audiences to discover and enjoy music that’s cracking open the status quo.

Concrete Lates brings that bang up to date, with a programme of artists who are among the most celebrated and progressive musicians working in experimental electronics today, and giving a platform to incredible and often under-represented female talent.

The Southbank Centre was first opened 1967 by the Queen as classical music venue playing host to such names as Jacqueline du Pré, Daniel Barenboim and Leonard Bernstein through the years. 

The refurb of the famous London venue was supported by donations from the public as well as the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England.
