Summertime sculpture project Bold Tendencies will be running its fifth exhibition this year, and for the first time it will be running a live programme of both musical and non-musical events.

On the last Thursday of every month, “Real Gold”: will be co-hosting live music nights with the project, showcasing emerging London talent. Although the line-ups are still under wraps right now, judging by the calibre of performances of the launch (a 2000-strong rooftop party with Mr Wonderful, Tim&Barry and Matthew Stone at the decks), it should be unmissable.

Other experimental live performances will include the “Rite of Spring Project“ which brings together over 100 young instrumentalists to perform Stravinsky, and the chance to watch Bo Ningen scoring the anime film Cat Soup.

New Tate film commissions will also be a highlight of the programme, providing an outlet for artists for whom music is a huge part of what they do, although they aren’t primarily musicians.

Bold Tendencies is a non-profit community sculpture project, held at summertime on the top floors of a disused Peckham car park, which hopes to eventually become London’s first sculpture park.
