My mixtape: Ólafur Arnalds

Monday, August 19, 2019 - 14:48

On 8 November we welcome the multi-instrumentalist, producer and BAFTA-winning composer Ólafur Arnalds as he takes over Southbank Centre with OPIA. A celebration of music and film, friendship and collaboration, OPIA has been curated by Arnalds and features a number of his favourite artists including Grandbrothers, Rhye, Poppy Ackroyd, Högni & Ensemble, Hania Rani and Josin.

Ahead of the event Arnalds gave us a taster of what to expect by putting together this special Spotify mixtape featuring a number of artists from his OPIA line-up, as he himself explains.

“In the spirit of collaboration and friendship that's at the heart of OPIA, I've chosen songs by the great artists playing the festivals, and some friends whose work I admire. These are some of the most interesting and inspiring artists I know. I'm very happy to get the opportunity to have so many of them under one roof in November in the first of, hopefully, many more OPIAs to come.”



Ólafur Arnalds presents OPIA, a celebration of music and film, featuring some of his favourite artists and performers, here at Southbank Centre on Friday 8 November.
