Serpentine Sessions: Regina Spektor to play inaugural event

Regina Spektor

Story by Jack Foley

THIS summer (2009) sees the very first Serpentine Sessions to be held in London’s Hyde Park.

Regina Spektor, Bon Iver and Tindersticks are to headline this unique and intimate series of concerts, which take place in a specially designed area of the royal park, on June 29, 30 and July 1.

Unlike other London outdoor events, these concerts will be very intimate, as there is a capacity of just 3,000 per night. Tickets will be limited.

The Serpentine Sessions were established to support artists on independent record labels and allow concert-goers to enjoy prestigious, hard-to-see acts in a stunning location where the focus is the music.

More exciting acts will be announced soon, including the main stage support, and the three acoustic acts per night, who will also be playing on the smaller bandstand stage.

All bands are playing at different times, so concert-goers have the chance to see every act playing.
