Lots of news for you with just over a week to go – hope you’re as excited as we are! First up, we’ve just released our programme – have a look here!
Super game designer VJ Yourself has excelled himself in putting together this rather neat game for us. Go on, see how many hipsters you can squash! And maybe win some tickets, if you haven’t got yours already…Play now!
We’re finally ready to announce the lineup for the Travelling Stage! Yes, 40 versions of your new favourite band, right here.
More and more highlights! Check them out here:
Brunel Museum (ROTHERHITHE)
From 6.30pm – 9.30pm Brunel’s unique Victorian brick shaft will host a series of acoustic performances from a hand-picked lineup of musicians including Woodpecker Wooliams and HK119. Illustrators Amelie Hegardt, Laurence Owen, Somang Lee, Helena Lyons and Sahar Ghanbari will be adding a visual dimension with animations, colours and shapes to create what will be a spectacular multi-sensory experience within this underground space.
Dalston Eastern Curve Garden
Sound Tracks returns to this hidden green getaway to provide an oasis of music, food and drink. Catch amazing intimate sets from the likes of We are Willow, Dulwich Ukulele Club and Theo Bard. Bring your kids to get stuck into a workshop on the sounds of the city, Future Makers‘ fascinating ‘Eye Live Here’
This landmark Georgian building has a secluded walled herb garden at the rear that will play host to one of Sam Zealey’s entrancing sculptures, accompanied by Royal College of Music’s Arbellio Quartet performing modern masterpieces from Debussy and Arvo Part.
Dalston Oxfam Shop
Fashion and music come together to enliven your charity shopping experience: Our guest stylist Stevie Westgarth will be transforming this cult shop using treasures dug up from its plenteous stores while acts like Dooks provide the tunes.
Sound Tracks’ After Party is hosted by wormfood + anomalous visuals. 2 of London’s most brilliant underground organisations will bring you a night of spectacular music, visuals and installations to end the festival with some bumps for eyes and ears.

While some among us may have gone a bit off the rails this weekend, you’ll be pleased to know Sound Tracks is still bang on course. In fact, tickets for this year’s event are on sale RIGHT NOW, for the rather generous early-bird price of just a tenner. Be quick though, as the price will be a-rising soon…
Until then, take a look at a couple more of the delightful venues we’ll be alighting at in May…

Sound Tracks 2013 is hurtling towards us like a runaway Class 378 Capitalstar, and we’re getting pretty damn excited about it. The East London Line’s recent extension has allowed us to take Sound Tracks into new territory and sample the delights of Peckham and beyond, and we’ve got a HUGE range of events planned in our favourite spots north of the river too. We’ll have more for you later, but here are some of the highlights.

Get your Oyster cards topped up quick! That’s right, Sound Tracks rolls back into town this May and is sure to provide 2013′s most unique festival experience.
2011′s event was a huge success, with over thirty acts performing in Dalston, Shoreditch and New Cross, as well as on the actual trains running between each venue. There’d never been an event quite like it in London before, and we couldn’t wait to do it all again.
Unfortunately we had to give last year a miss because of some big international Sports Day that proved rather popular, and clogged up East London for a long period. However, we’re back for 2013 and, thanks to the expansion of the East London Line into Peckham and beyond, we’re going to be even bigger and better this time around. More details will be announced very soon, but the date for your diaries is 11 May 2013.
If you weren’t on board in 2011 then take a look at the video below to see what you missed, and don’t forget to give us a thumbs up on Facebook (and a follow on Twitter). We’ll be spreading exciting news on both very soon…
