The Outlook Orchestra

Dance to the biggest tracks in Outlook's 10th anniversary concert, introduced by Mary Anne Hobbs. Outlook Festival is Europe's leading festival of sound system culture.

In collaboration with Southbank Centre, they're celebrating their 10th year with a bespoke musical project – a 100 minute live mix celebrating some of your favourite tracks that have played at sound systems worldwide.

The 20-piece Outlook Orchestra features some of the UK's finest musicians, and includes two drummers in an extended rhythm section, along with large string and horn sections.

The Orchestra is joined by Pharoahe Monch, Congo Natty, Dawn Penn, Foreign Beggars, Newham Generals, General Levy, Flowdan, Killa P, Jehst, Ruby Wood (Submotion Orchestra), Jenna G, Nancy & Phoebe, MC Jila (Gentlemen's Dub Club), and special guests to be announced. There's also live effects and dub mixing from Adrian Sherwood & Mad Professor.

The orchestra is lead by BASCA award-winning composer Tommy Evans, the creative force behind both Submotion Orchestra and Gentleman's Dub Club. He is assisted by trumpeter and arranger Matt Roberts, who has performed and collaborated with the likes of Orlando Julius, The Gaslamp Killer and The Heliocentrics.
