There’s no secret to the success of Somerset House’s annual gig series. Londoners love the venue for offering all the open-air excitement of a festival stage right in the centre of the capital, whilst artists enjoy playing to a captivated audience in a grand eighteenth-century courtyard, romantically close to the Thames. The line-up is always great – Grace Jones, Adele, Bloc Party and Amy Winehouse have all graced the stage – and this year isn’t a break from that tradition. Check out who features on 2014’s line-up below. All tickets go on sale on Friday March 21 at 9am.
