United Underground

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A rooftop party above Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre.

Music plus activism.

Hosted by Ctrl.Alt.Shift, British Underground, Southbank Centre and actor and musician Riz Ahmed/ Riz MC, United Underground is a mix of cutting-edge street culture, music, artwork, fanzines and film set against a backdrop of new-school activism.  

The event has been created to promote active engagement with new music and its potential as a catalyst for change.

On The Roof will be some of London's hotly tipped live acts, and best-loved underground club nights. We will also present an impressive lineup of speakers from across the cultural and campaigning spectrum, talking activism and their way of doing it – from film director Peter Kosminsky, gay rights campaigners from Baghdad, to Plane Stupid.

The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall will showcase a buzzing lineup of new short film talent gathered by Film London talent spotters, plus feature films from Andy Serkis and Eran Creevey in the Purcell Room. Also in the Front Room, Ctrl.Alt.Shift will be putting together a fanzine, in real time, documenting the night - with contributions from punters (pics taken on your phone, blogs, poetry) as well as pre-sourced contributions from activists and artists. 

This is a not-for-profit event. The idea is to showcase creative talent, throw an eclectic party, and encourage participation in fresh ways.
