The gorgeous eighteenth-century courtyard of Somerset House hosts another of its annual summer gig series. With neoclassical beauty on all four sides, it takes a very special music line-up to live up to the setting. Luckily the Summer Series has got just that. Our highlights are Jessie Ware's mature R&B and First Aid Kit's penetrating folk, but over the course of the festival's 11 days there's something for all tastes.
Debonair design and accessible music – the considered festival experience.
