First pop-up music venue opening in London


May 25, 2010 | News

London's Finsbury Park is to become the home of the UK's first pop-up music venue, it has been announced.

Opening on May 28th, the Silver Bullet, which has the capacity for 175 people, will be situated in the park for seven months before moving to a new location, NME reported.

On its opening night, The Vanities, Foreign Office, and Safari will play live sets, while Mat Horne will DJ at the London venue.

Owner Tom Allerton said the pop-up nature of the venture would prevent visitors getting bored.

He told the publication: "Venues too readily become old and tired, with the same old bands and promoters turning up month after month. With our pop-up existence, we won't be around long enough for people to become bored."

Earlier this month, Leamington Spa's Assembly was named as Music Week's best venue, ahead of London venues.

It beat off competition from London's Shepherd's Bush Empire and the Lexington to claim the award.
