Somerset House concerts in London: Guillemots, Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse and more

The Summer Series at Somerset House in London and the annual open air concerts in the courtyard will be taking place Thursday 12 - Saturday 21 July 2007. The lineup includes bands Kasabian, Guillemots, Hot Chip, Mika, Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse and more.

Somerset House is an 18th century Neoclassical palace and is located between The Strand and the Thames in central London. The idea of going to a live open air event in the courtyard there seems like a nice night out - especially if it's one of those hot steamy nights in July when the best place to be is outside.

It's great to see that Guillemots are playing. If you haven't read the interview already, be sure to check out my interview with Guillemots drummer Greig Stewart. It was interesting to hear about Guillemots' new studio, what Greig gets up to on a typical day on tour and other fun facts about him and the band.
