London has long been a mecca for music fans of all kinds yet in recent years a combination of venue closures and extortionately priced gigs and festivals have made it all too difficult to stumble into a free gig and discover an amazing new band. Inspired by these challenges, Unsigned London aims to revitalise London’s undiscovered music scene for an exciting weekend of eclectic performances.
