Boiler Room Announces a Trio of Festivals in London, New York City and Barcelona
Despite the UK lockdown being pushed back by another month, Boiler Room announces a trio of festivals in London, New York City and Barcelona later in 2021 — an evolution of its stand-out debut edition in 2019, supported by Absolut, Ballantine’s, Beefeater & Jameson.
This triad of events continue to deliver Boiler Room’s core mission: giving as much space to emerging artists as established names. No headliners.

The different festival event dates are as follows:
New York City — 10 September
Boiler Room Festival commences in New York City on Friday 10 September with a day-into-night takeover in Brooklyn. The programme will feature some of NYC’s most vital artists, DJs and collectives, alongside special guest live performances and a video installation commissioned by 4:3 — Boiler Room’s platform for underground film.
London — 13 – 16 October
From Wednesday 13 to Saturday 16 October, Boiler Room Festival returns to London following its stand-out debut edition in 2019. The ambitious programme will unfold over four nights, shifting focus to explore four scenes and sounds: Jazz Mind, Rap Fantasy, System Sound, Club.
Wednesday kicks things off with live music and jazz-influenced sounds whilst Thursday brings together the varying styles of rap and mic culture under one roof; both days held at South London’s Bussey Building. The festival then moves to Northern twilight zone The Cause for sound system clashes and forward-facing club music on Friday and Saturday nights respectively.
Barcelona — 26 – 27 November
Staged over two nights—26 – 27 November, Boiler Room Festival Barcelona will feature the city’s most essential artists, DJs and collectives – as well as special guest live performances and video installations.
