Already craving an expertly curated, vaguely festival-shaped pilgrimage, but not quite ready to brave a day in the cold outdoors just yet? Well, BBC 6 Music’s resident musos have lined up a perfect, manageable event – and it’s a mere hop away on the Northern line!

Every year, the BBC 6 Music Festival descends on a different city, and in 2020 it’s our own fair capital (and Camden specifically) that’ll be playing host to its credible wares.

It’s bringing a gaggle of gigs to the borough from March 6 to 8: you can catch the likes of Mike Skinner, Michael Kiwanuka, Bombay Bicycle Club and Róisín Murphy taking to stages at the Roundhouse, Dingwalls, Electric Ballroom and Fest. Want some new music recommendations? It has those too, with slacker popstar Beabadoobee, north Londoners Sorry, Mercury-nominated noiseniks Black Midi and loads more also on the bill.

And on March 8, the Roundhouse’s main space will be dedicated to an International Women’s Day celebration featuring Kate Tempest, Kim Gordon, Anna Meredith, Savages’ Jehnny Beth and Nadine Shah.

You know that new year’s resolution you made to soak up more of the city’s culture? Here’s how to keep it up with ease.

Tickets for all events go on sale at 10am on Fri Jan 24. Head here for full line-ups and info.
