Hackney Live Lounge





Hackney Live Lounge is a live stream project by Rising Tide and Hackney Live showcasing local emerging young artists aged 16 to 19 to an online audience on Friday 29th September at 7pm.

The performances are the results of a week of activities that included an artist masterclass by Mercury nominated artist TY and a social media master class by local ‘university for street entrepreneurs’ Urban MBA.

Hackney Live Lounge continues the ethos to help emerging artists to extend their reach to new audiences and deepen their relationships with their fan-base.

The event is streamed live via all key social media platforms, and offers viewers the chance to interact with the show. The format will be understated, conveying a feeling of having your own personal concert in your living room.

All artists are from the local Hackney area and range from soulful soloists to experimental electronica. Hackney Music Service and Hackney Empire have also given additional artistic support.

Hackney Live Lounge is funded by Hackney Council and is part of the Discover
Young Hackney 2017 youth arts festival.
