Mika calls for fancy dress at summer concert


Story by Jack Foley

POP favourite Mika has asked concert fans to make an effort and wear fantastical fancy dress at his sold out Summer Series gig at Somerset House on July 17.

Speaking about his plan, he said: “I want my fans to be part of the show at Somerset House, so I want as many people as possible to come dressed as ridiculously and fabulously as possible.

“All those coming in an outfit will be photographed and posted on my website in our gig gallery. Watch out for some other surprises too!”

The open air Summer Series concerts at Somerset House are a unique event in the summer’s live music calendar.

This year’s programme runs from July 12 to 21 and includes shows from Mogwai (in surround sound), Kasabian, Bert Jansch (with Beth Orton and Bernard Butler), Guillemots, Lily Allen, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Roots, Amy Winehouse and Hot Chip.
