Read about the weekend festival on the Barbican website.

The ambitious weekend-long project celebrating classical music from the medieval era to the present day returns 18-19 May and, for the first time, will be completely free. A Culture Mile event programmed by the Barbican, the festival will explore unexpected spaces across Culture Mile, which stretches from Farringdon to Moorgate in the north-west of the Square Mile, celebrating fantastic music alongside the history and heritage of the area. 

Sound Unbound has previously enjoyed two hugely successful editions in 2015 and 2017. The weekender gives everyone the chance to explore new sounds and rediscover familiar ones, from medieval to modern, in a relaxed festival environment. The weekend features artists for whom the boundaries between classical music and contemporary, experimental music and jazz have been blurred – or never even existed in the first place. With multiple concerts taking place simultaneously, each festival-goer will be able to pick and choose from a vast range of performances and create their own unique version of Sound Unbound.
