Tickets go on sale for the annual Summer Series of outdoor concerts reports

Richard Hawley, Jessie Ware and Band Of Horses are just some of the artists confirmed for this year's Summer Series, the annual series of open air concerts which runs from Thursday 11th to Sunday 21st July at Somerset House. Demand for tickets is usually high and the advice to music fans is to be ready when tickets go on sale to the general public at 9am this Friday 15 March 2013, and to book a hotel in London at the same time to avoid disappointment.

Speaking about his appearance on Sunday 14th July, Sheffield-born musician Richard Hawley said: “I've always hoped I might get a chance of playing [Somerset House or Greenwich Observatory] as they are both connected deeply with our country’s history.”

Further acts joining the line-up will be Londoners Alex Clare and Lianne La Havas, Swedish duo First Aid Kit, indie folk rock band Of Monsters and Men, Brit Awards Critics' Choice winner Tom Odell, and Los Angeles-based musical collective based Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros – the band fronted by American singer-songwriter Alex Ebert.

Newcomer Alex Clare, a 27-year-old former chef from Golders Green, begins the Somerset House Summer Series on Thursday 11th July while long-standing bands, Goldfrapp and Basement Jaxx, are the big name acts who will close the series by performing on the final weekend, appearing on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July respectively.

The Somerset House Summer Series is a highlight of spending summer in London and for anyone planning to visit London this summer, a comprehensive list of events can be found on where the London 2013 Annual from is available to download for free..
