Outlook Festival is Europe’s leading festival of Sound System Culture. 2017 marks Outlook’s tenth anniversary and in collaboration with Southbank Centre they have created a bespoke musical – A 100 minute live mix celebrating some of the biggest tracks heard across the dancefloors on Sound Systems worldwide.
Taking over Southbank Centre’s 2500 capacity Royal Festival Hall, the 20-piece Outlook Orchestra will feature some of the UK’s finest musicians, and will include 2 drummers in an extended rhythm section plus large string and horn sections.
Joining the orchestra will be some of the scene’s biggest vocalists and mc’s from the worlds of hiphop, grime, reggae, garage, drum & bass and dubstep. Full list of vocalists to be announced very soon.
The Orchestra will be lead by BASCA award winning composer Tommy Evans, the creative driving force behind both Submotion Orchestra and Gentleman’s Dub Club. He will be assisted by trumpeter and arranger Matt Roberts who has performed/collaborated with Orlando Julius, The Gaslamp Killer, The Heliocentrics and many more.
