Lankum announce largest indoor gig so far

Catch Lankum's biggest headline show at Eventim Apollo, London, on Oct 26. Tickets on sale Friday, pre-sale Wednesday. Don't miss out!

Lankum, the acclaimed Irish folk band, is set to play their biggest headline show to date at London’s Eventim Apollo (Hammersmith Apollo) on October 26th. This performance is particularly special as it will be their only remaining UK concert in 2024 outside of festival appearances.

The band, consisting of Ian Lynch, Daragh Lynch, Radie Peat, and Cormac MacDiarmada, has made significant strides in the music world following the release of their fourth album, False Lankum. This album, nominated for a Mercury Prize, has been praised for its innovative approach to traditional music, blending elements of folk with experimental and psychedelic sounds. While they were pipped to the Mercury post by the Ezra Collective, False Lankum went on to win countless Album of the Year accolades in 2023.

False Lankum draws from traditional songs and techniques but is rendered unique through its incorporation of experimental overtones and drones. This blend has become a hallmark of Lankum’s live performances, where their acoustic instrumentation and vocal harmonies create a captivating sonic landscape.

The announcement of their upcoming gig at the Eventim Apollo was accompanied by a thrilling and intense black-and-white video directed by Tom Clifford, offering fans a glimpse of what to expect from the band’s live show. The video, shot at the Roundhouse in London, captures the essence of Lankum’s performance style, emphasizing the fervent depth they bring to the stage.

For fans eager to experience Lankum’s largest headline show yet, tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am, with a pre-sale beginning on Wednesday at 10am. Tickets can be purchased through the Eventim Apollo website. This concert is a unique opportunity to see Lankum in an iconic venue, promising an evening of profound musical exploration and connection.
