About the event
Filling London’s green spaces with music, unamplified, outdoors, around a fire. A unique path for discovering music and London’s hidden green spaces, The Nest Collective’s Campfire Club returns this summer, from May to September, taking you on a worldwide musical journey through the city, with a series of carefully curated, unamplified concerts.
Having searched far and wide for those rare outdoor spaces where open campfires are allowed, as well as the perfect balance of nature and seclusion, Campfire Club takes place each week on a Friday (plus the odd Thursday and Saturday) night, in one of the carefully mapped sites across the city, covering the four corners, including; Bethnal Green, Bow, Shoreditch, Islington, Kings Cross, Queens Park, Stockwell, Peckham, and Brockley.
Celebrating London’s wild sanctuaries, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Campfire Club is a quiet place to come together and listen.
The Nest Collective, founded by Mercury nominated artist Sam Lee, welcomes small audiences to gather together around a fire for an evening of intimate performances from world-renowned artists. This unique sonorous experience connects communities with each other, nature, music, and oral traditions, “tending the flame [of tradition], not worshipping the ashes” (Gustav Mahler).
Summer 2018’s season of events includes appearances by Piers Faccini, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Seckou Keita, The Embers Collective, London Contemporary Voices amongst many other inspiring artists.
Punctuating the season, on June 9th The Nest Collective's unplugged, family friendly, worldwide roots music festival, UnampliFire, returns to The Master Shipwrights House in Deptford. Journey to the banks of the River Thames for a day and night of non-stop unamplified music as this special and rarely visited venue, the oldest upstanding building of the former Deptford Royal Dockyard, "Hidden London at its delightful best" (The Telegraph), hosts four eclectic stages, indoors and out, as well as campfire sing-a-longs.
