'Classical clubbing' comes to Bermondsey Street tunnel

Yellow Lounge says that it will bring "some of the greatest international talent" to unusual performance spaces.

On Wednesday 20 July young artists Milos Karadaglic (guitar) and Danielle de Niese (soprano) will open Yellow Lounge London in a railway arch at London Bridge Station.

Established in on Berlin club scene for many years and recently started in Amsterdam, Yellow Lounge creates new ways to engage with classical music in a variety of unusual urban spaces, combining live performance with DJ and VJ sets.

"Classical music is too good to be locked up in the concert hall or behind glass in a museum," says Mike Bartlett, head of Decca Classics UK.

"There are great spaces out there and a new setting opens your mind to see and hear things differently. Yellow Lounge is a chance for people to explore and to be curious about music they may not have experienced before."

Following the launch in the Yellow Arch at Bermondsey Street Tunnel, Yellow Lounge London will continue in a variety of new performance spaces.

• Yellow Lounge on Wednesday 20 July – doors 7pm; tickets 6 on the door – details at www.yellowlounge.co.uk
