Every Tuesday at the beautiful Curve Garden, from June to September with 3 amazing musical acts, delicious Latto's pizza and the incredible Curve Garden atmosphere. 



Modernising traditional dub influences, Mount Nakara bring soundsystem culture to the stage with an upbeat, bass heavy live performance. The result is a fresh take on UK roots music. Over the last 3 years the band have toured the south west, headlined a number of local festivals and shared the stage with the likes of Dizraeli, Dub Pistols, The Resonators and Yes Sir Boss.


Epic North London collective bring you a heavy dose of upbeat Balkan tunes destined to drag you from your seats. From high energy dance numbers to heart wrenching laments, from Bosnia to Bulgaria, we bring traditional styles fused together with new arrangements destined to move your feet and your soul. 


Lena Laki is an indie folk singer-songwriter based in London. Her songs capture the feeling of sweet surrender, melancholic and hopeful at once, as Lena’s warm, confident voice blends each time with the lamenting violin, and heartfelt melodies bring to life tales of eerie encounters and impossible separations.

Brave and original, haunting and instantly addictive, her music bears the ageless quality of an old favourite and the inventiveness of that independent folk.

Her Debut EP "Take Me With" was released in 2016 and has received acclaim from media. Gigslutz made her the "Discovery of the Week" in April 2016, hailing Lena as “One of those ultimately talented musicians it is essential to appreciate“, while Love is Pop declared Lena’s material as "nothing short of gorgeous."

“Discovery of The Week: Lena Laki is one of those ultimately talented musicians it is essential to appreciate. (...) "Take Me With" is a melancholic, beautifully self-aware and mature piece of work” (Gigslutz, UK, April 2016)
