Boiler Room's first venture into music festivals in the UK will launch in October

Boiler Room has confirmed plans to launch a new music festival in London later this year.

Set to take place across four days at Peckham's Copeland Park - which houses the Bussey Building and Rye Wax amongst other spaces - Boiler Room Festival, organisers say, will take the focus away from headliners, celebrating emerging artists and underground music and culture from London.

The festival's four days will each cover different musical scenes with programming given over to jazz, rap, bass music and club music. The event will be streamed live via Boiler Room, while there are also events set to take place across other London venues during the festival. Details on those events are yet to be announced.

"With our first ever Boiler Room Festival we wanted to represent some of the most exciting music movements and underground scenes in the UK right now," says Boiler Room CEO Blaise Bellville. "Partnering with the emerging DJs, artists and collectives who are shaping contemporary club culture, and giving them the biggest stage we can."

Tickets for the festival, which runs from October 9-12, will go on sale this Thursday (June 6). The line-up is due to be announced soon. For more information, head here.
