Young Fathers

Part of M.I.A.'s Meltdown

The award-winning trio, Young Fathers, bring their raw energy and unique sound to a show especially created for Meltdown.

Multi-nominated winners of the Scottish Album of the Year award, along with the Mercury Prize for DEAD in 2014, Young Fathers have awed audiences around the world with their energetic live show.

Now they perform tracks from their critically praised albums and test the concrete of the People’s Palace to their limits.

The show is followed by an after party on The Clore Ballroom at Royal Festival Hall.

Southbank Centre's Voicelab is looking for 20 singers aged 18 – 25 to perform in Young Fathers' gig. We're creating a choir of confident young singers to take to the stage and be part of this unique show. To find out more, apply here by Sunday 14 May.
