What is the Lambeth Live Explosion?

The LLE brings over fifty musicians together at each concert and helps support key developmental areas of live performance experience and confidence building. The focus at the LLE is on inclusivity and support for all in what has now become a celebratory sharing experience for musicians, their families and friends. Started in 2010, the LLE has offered this opportunity to hundreds of young musicians and has taken place in venues and festivals including the White Lion Streatham, Oval House, The Half Moon, Lambeth Country Show, Stockwell Festival and Southbank Centre.

Oliver Bayley, founder of Lambeth Live Explosion and director of live events for Lambeth Music Service said: “When we started the Lambeth Live Explosion there wasn’t a place where young musicians from different areas of Lambeth could regularly perform to each other in a non-formal environment. At the first concert, there were only a few acts but now with the inclusion of the many local out of school music projects, we get to work with lots of great young artists. The event is also about furthering young people’s access to music making opportunities and what better way than through sharing the experience of performing together!”
