This summer, The Nest Collective invites you to discover extraordinary music around the campfire.
Every week from May to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces under city skylines and listen to amazing music by artists from all over the world.
We come together in the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, around the fire with food, drink, music and each other. The performances are unamplified, allowing you to get up close and personal and hear the artists’ music in a very intimate way.
What the audience said:

“Walking into a wonderland of nature with beautiful music and people, it made me feel wonderfully elated.” – Jane S

Rob Luft Quintet
Rob Luft is an award-winning 25-year-old musician from London, and has been described as one of the UK’s most prominent and talented young contemporary jazz guitarists. Praised by The Times ‘to achieve great things in the future’, Rob was the recipient of the 2016 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize in association with Edition Records, and he also received the 2nd Prize in The 2016 Montreux Jazz Guitar Competition. His debut album, “Riser”, was released in July 2017, to widespread critical acclaim from the European jazz media.
“A very sophisticated debut, but given Luft’s old-soul achievements since his early teens, we should have heard it coming” – the Guardian

His works are a generous spirited cultural collaboration that allows his original compositions to come to life while paying homage to the N. Indian classical tradition he loves.
