Back for its third year, Carling Live 24 will once again be getting music fans geared
up for the arduous festival season ahead with 24 hours of near-non-stop music across the capital.
The all-night and all-next-dayer kicks off at 7pm on Friday, 28 April, at Brixton Academy and then takes in another six London venues before finishing up in Shepherd's Bush Empire at 7pm on the Saturday.
Kaiser Chiefs, Razorlight, Ian Brown, The Ordinary Boys, Dirty Pretty Things, Larrikin Love, Goldie Lookin' Chain and The Cuban Brothers are headlining the seven back-to-back events, with support acts also due to be added. Click here for the lineup details.
Ordinary Boy/celebrity anomaly, Preston, said: "The last shows we played in london were mental. It will be different playing in the afternoon but we have a really up for it crowd compared to most bands in the capital so we are really looking forward to it."
Fans can pick and choose from the seven gigs, which take place in Islington, Camden, Brixton, Shepherd's Bush, Hammersmith, and King's Cross, or invest in a railcard and take them all on.
One of the event's organisers, Martin Coyle, said: "This year we have designed the whole event to ensure that gig-goers can travel from venue to venue throughout the 24 hours and catch every single headline band. Carling Live 24 is going to be one legendary day and we are sure there will be a few stories to tell afterwards!"
Tickets go on sale here from 14 March and are expected to cost about £15-£20 each with discounts for the whole lot. A similar event is expected to be announced for Manchester although no news as yet on what date.
