Live music will return to Camden’s famous market following lockdown with an open-air series featuring artists including Miles Kane and Newton Faulkner.

Eight ticketed events have been announced for the Stables Market’s amphitheatre and will be free to the public with a capacity of 150.

The Camden Unlocked programme features semi-acoustic sets from Kane and Faulkner as well as Shaun Escoffery, Sons of Pitches, John Power, Mae Muller and the Puppini Sisters.

There will also be DJ sets from Don Letts, Solar Radio and Shiiine On. Outdoor performances were allowed to resume on July 10 with restricted audience numbers and social distancing, as lockdown measures ease across the UK.

Camden Market appointed Xfm founder and NME Radio station manager Sammy Jacob and live agent Neil O’Brien to produce the series.

People will be encouraged to wear face coverings and there will be hand sanitiser dispensers throughout the site. More details at camdenmarket.com/UNLOCKED
