Eurostar presents Traction | 14th July, 5pm-11pm @ Granary Square N1C | £20

To Do List can’t wait for Traction this Saturday, a one-day summer festival curated by DJ Gilles Peterson, featuring Sébastien Tellier, The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble (check out the video below…), Ghostpoet, Plugs, Benny Sings and Baloji & l’Orchestre de la Katuba.

As if that wasn’t enough, you can expect performances from Gilles Peterson himself, as well as unique collaborations between the musical artists and a host of creative performers.

Gilles Peterson Says:

Over the last few months I’ve been searching the continent to find pioneering musical acts to join the Traction line-up. It’s set to be an exciting day with six talented artists confirmed who will be helping us to put on an eclectic event this summer.

Traction is the very first event to take place in London’s newest creative quarter – Granary Square – a stone’s throw (we’re assured) from St Pancras International. The square sits at the heart of the 67-acre King’s Cross development, which combines new and restored historic buildings with an ambitious art programme featuring major commissions by internationally acclaimed artists.

At the time of writing, tickets are still available at www.eurostartraction.com or www.ticketmaster.co.uk.

And to get you in the mood, here’s a little video from one of the acts, The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble:
