About Sound Unbound
A free music festival of unexpected sounds in unexpected places – no ticket is necessary, just turn up and enjoy the music. Some sessions have limited capacity, and access is on a first-come, first-served basis

Music will burst from the Barbican and out across Culture Mile’s architectural gems with a line-up of artists for whom the boundaries between classical and contemporary, experimental and jazz are blurred – or never even existed in the first place.

From authentic medieval sounds to hypnotic minimalist masterpieces, there are over 100 sessions, installations and more to explore – and you can tap into any of them for free.
