Preview: London Electronic Arts Festival

The London Electronic Arts Festival is a major new city-wide event for London, showcasing its innovative heritage in electronic music. Through a series of talks, technology masterclasses, installations, screenings, parties and performances, LEAF aims to reclaim the legacy of London as a pioneering figure in electronic music.

The festival is created by Bestival founder and BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank, and music pioneer and International Music Summit creator Ben Turner, in partnership with SJM Concerts. Celebrating the cultural significance of electronic music, LEAF will focus on how the genre has influenced visual art, film and live music.

Across the capital, LEAF will stage shows in a host of live music venues and warehouse spaces including Major Lazer at Brixton Academy on 7 November, and Trentemoller at The Forum. There will be additional events of all shapes and sizes, largely in the surrounding east London area, including a performance by The Bloody Beetroots at Village Underground on 7 November, as well as a DJ set by Giorgio Moroder at Oval Space.
