This Summer, we’re rounding off our 2015/16 season of gigs with the first ever LUME Festival. On Sunday 26th June we’re taking over IKLECTIK ARTLAB near Waterloo for a one-day celebration of all things LUME: original and improvised music from the UK and beyond, friendly vibes and good times.

We put the call out for artist submissions in January, and we had an overwhelming response. 135 artists took the time to fill out the form and send us their music! After three days of intensive listening and discussion, we've put together a day of fresh, cutting-edge new music that your ears won't be able to get enough of. We had a tough time narrowing it down, but the final lineup is as follows:

Ant Traditions (Manchester)

Kjær/Musson/Marshall (London)

Little Church (Birmingham)

Hot Beef Three (Leeds)

Blueblut (Austria)

Article XI (Manchester)

IKLECTIK ARTLAB is the perfect venue. The gorgeous inside room sounds great, plus there's a really excellent garden space that we could use for small performances. Hidden away in Paradise Yard (but very near Waterloo station), it’s an oasis in the heart of busy London.

Our core programme of LUME gigs this year is supported by Arts Council England, and there will be part of this funding left for the festival. There's enough to put on about three bands and have a nice evening. But after all the amazing music we've listened to, that’s not quite enough for us. We want to do more – and this is where you come in. With your help, we can put on everyone in the list above and pack the day full of music. We've also invited Gina Southgate to come and capture the day on canvas, and Alex Fiennes to record the performances!

To make this happen we need to hit a Kickstarter target of £3500, all of which will go towards artist fees and travel expenses. Help us get there by treating yourself to a plethora of exciting rewards including early bird festival tickets and exclusive LUME Festival merchandise: posters, stickers and even limited edition LUME Festival t-shirts. Make sure you've got your fix of new original/improvised music sorted for the next twelve months by becoming a LUME member for 2016/17. Join LUME founders Cath and Dee on a special trip to the London Aquarium as an homage to our power animal, the anglerfish. Or for those of you who seek a more exclusive, one-off experience: commission leading avant-jazz quartet and LUME house band Word Of Moth to compose a tune in your honour, perform it at the festival and record it for inclusion on their forthcoming debut album. Yes, that's a thing that could actually happen. Join us. Let's do this!

Risks and challenges

Once the project is fully funded, there will be minimal risks/challenges involved, as the venue and the artists are all already confirmed. If all the early bird Kickstarter tickets are sold, the event will be very close to selling out too.

Aside from that, the only risk might be the weather! Although we're keen to use the garden space for small performances, we'll need to have a contingency plan in place so that the whole event can happen inside if necessary.
