The second year of the Beeb’s Electric Proms season is upon us and gets underway this evening in Camden.
Over the next five nights music and music-related films take over NW1. Here’s our preview.
Amongst tonight’s shows, Sigur Rós showcase their film Heima and its soundtrack album with an acoustic performance and a screening – a similar show is scheduled for the BFI at the start of November, and a nationwide release of the film is upcoming.
Meanwhile, Mark Ronson, the BBC Concert Orchestra and guests headline the Roundhouse, supported by The Coral and – we’re reliably informed – Noel Gallagher is expected to make an appearance there.
And Siouxsie Sioux will be strutting her stuff at the Electric Ballroom.
We’ll be covering the festival this year with a mix of reviews and blog entries from Camden.
But if you’re not in London, the BBC has laid on an even wider range of viewing and listening options this year. Interactive TV, the web, TV and radio all offer the shows either live and/or on demand after the event. Full details of which can be found at the Electric Proms website.
Do let us know what your highlights are.
