The Ether Festival, taking place at the Southbank Centre, is this year celebrating its tenth anniversary.

At Ether you'll have the chance to enjoy experimental music-based art at its best, brought to you by some of the world's top underground artists - together with a sprinkling of higher profile names.

The music is creatively blended with other art forms, and a decent amount of cutting-edge tech will be utilised too.

Besides the myriad of performances taking place, the month-long extravaganza also includes movie screenings, art installations, discussions, and more.

Ether's unpredictable and entertaining shows make it a unique event on the capital's arts calendar.
