The Southbank Centre have announced pioneering DJ and producer Honey Dijon will be taking over its venues for two exceptional evenings of live music and club nights on Saturday 9th September and Saturday 16th September.
Taking inspiration from Honey Dijon’s own roots in the Black and Queer community, Honeyverse will feature the finest DJ talent who are taking the international music scene by storm and pushing the decks to new limits.
Opening Honeyverse in the Royal Festival Hall on Saturday 9th September, Honey Dijon will give the world premiere ‘The Honey Dijon Experience’. Featuring the Radiant Baby Orchestra, the show will feature Honey Dijon performing a live DJ set of her own songs and favourite tunes remixed with the live orchestra. Later that evening, in the Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer, Honey Dijon will headline a club night featuring South London producer and DJ Aqwea. Also on the bill, Ugandan DJ and member of the Nyege Nyege collective, Kampire, will share her unique, genre-bending sounds.
The following weekend, Saturday 16th September, Alewya performs a live set in the Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of a double bill. She returns to the Southbank Centre after appearing in Grace Jones’ Meltdown last summer where she captured audiences with her sultry vocals and cosmic beats. Also performing will be the Cakes da killa, one of New York’s most trailblazing rappers.
Going late into the night in the Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer for the second club night of Honeyverse, Honey Dijon will be joined in the booth by Red Pig Flower and Gayance.
Speaking on Honeyverse, Honey Dijon states: ‘Discovery, Love, Joy. These are the tools of my creative practice and it gives me great pleasure to share with all of you the music and artists that inspired me in the curation of Honeyverse. So please join me for two exciting weekends full of cutting edge fun and an incredible and varied array of talent at Southbank Centre.’
Tickets for Honey Dijon’s Honeyverse will be on general sale Thursday 25 May at 10:00am here.
