International Music Day has been happening on the longest day of the year (21 June) since 1982. This is the flagship event from the Music Day UK campaign team for #MusicDay2017 and we have for the second time been invited by the team at the London Riviera pop-up venue to stage a takeover of The London Bridge City Summer Festival – which is simply in one of the most amazing locations you could possibly find in London!
We have a wonderful array of live music in The Scoop!

These guys are a London-based Ska-punk outfit with a passion for live shows, fast-paced skanking and man hugs. King Punch hail from London and present a rag tag collection of all they hold dear in music; a DIY spirit, punk energy, brass filled hooks and dirty guitars, all served up with a smile.
This seven-piece band are on fire at the moment and amidst their busy summer gig lineup we are lucky to have them grace the stage at The Scoop for this year's event. With a reputation for a raucous live show you can expect ska, swing, punk and a party.
Check out their energised sound over on their pages:
This Roots Rock Reggae five piece band was originally setup by Faada Ras in the early eighties and continue spreading good vibes and love through their music. With over 40 shows and festivals in their first year in their new formation, The Majestic are also adding 'hardest working' to their list of superlatives. Currently working on their live album, The Majestic continue to thrill audiences across the UK festival circuit.
KING SALAMI and the CUMBERLAND THREE
This is London’s greatest and most sensational Rhythm’n’Blues-Punk band. And this is a band that truly represents London, being a mongrel mix of Caribbean, France, Japan and Spain. With a repertoire influenced by many of the great songs of the ’50s and ’60s made to sound fresh and new to modern ears, you won’t be able to help but move your feet when the Cumberland Three are blasting out of your speakers.
SEEDS OF CREATION
This band were formed in the late 70s and has gone through many incarnations since. Seeds of Creation, play an intriguing blend of traditional Berber music with reggae, jazz and raw psychedelic sounds that will transport you from the east-end of London deep into the heart of the Sahara. This multicultural band create an absorbing, compulsively danceable sound, drawing on the band leader Seddik’s Berber roots. Their rich and original rmelodies and earth-grounded grooves have seen them play at all the world music festivals and venues in London.
This is an eclectic lineup to reflect the diversity that International Music Day thrives on – we would love to see you there!
