London Guitar Festival

New players. New music. New experiences

The 15th edition of London Guitar Festival brings you a wonderful series of concerts, album launches, the Final of London International Guitar Competition 2019, our Young Artist and Aspire Platforms, new commissions, plenty of workshops and Q&A and panel discussions. The guitar is unique in its appeal to people of all ages, musical tastes and economic means; immerse yourself in that most colourful and versatile of instruments: the guitar.

This year’s breathtaking line-up includes Venus and the Guitar with a unique all female Flamenco show around Antonia Jimenez and a day around female composers for guitar with Errollyn Wallen and Laura Snowden. Master guitarist David Russell returns to highlight the Big Night of the Guitar on 26 October, which also features last year’s LIGC winner Emmanuel Sowicz.

Finally, don’t forget to bring your guitar and take part yourself in our workshops and masterclasses with David Russell, Antonia Jimenez as well as free workshops Girls Rock and Composing for Guitar for girls and young women.
