Flat Iron Square is very pleased to share details of a weekly free music festival, running throughout the month of September.

Common Ground will launch on the 1st September at Flat Iron Square in SE1. The five family-friendly events, occurring every Saturday throughout September, will bring together a veritable slew of eclectic, cult, and under the radar talent across a number of different genres from folk and soul to reggae, Afrobeat and punk.

With the likes of the perennially buzzed about duo NOVA TWINS, Too Many T’s, and a set from Common Ground’s co-founder Beans-on-Toast who headlines the inaugural event on the 1st September, have a look at the extensive, current weekly line-ups –

Common Ground welcomes a fantastic array of DJs too; including the world renowned Chris Tofu (who runs Glastonbury’s weird and wonderful Shangri-La and also programmed the infamous Lost Vagueness), and Secret Garden Party Head Gardener, and Boomtown’s, AAA Badboy.

Proceeds from any donations made at each event will be donated to a different charity each week, including Help Refugees, RAW Foundation, and The Felix Project, with more to be announced closer to launch.

Soho Radio will broadcast live from the festival, with sessions and interviews with the artists.

The festival will run from midday to midnight at London’s favourite new event space, Flat Iron Square. Nestled on The Low Line just off Southwark Street, this community-minded hub of activity is the home to OMEARA and London’s finest
selection of street food traders who offer up eclectic dishes from across the globe, alongside some local favourites too.

The festival will also benefit from Flat Iron Square’s regular weekend-long Flea Market Flea at Flat Iron Square, which takes its inspiration from some of Europe’s finest in offering up a busy mix of vintage fashion, arts and crafts, antiques, and retro homeware.

The Flea will weave itself right through the Common Ground site until 6pm weekly.

Flat Iron Square recently earned itself the enviable reputation of the unofficial London party home of the World Cup for all nations this Summer, and Common Ground looks set to keep that party atmosphere alive in London’s favourite new neighbourhood.
