Try something new at London Calling

You may be familiar with some of the acts on the London Calling menu, but the list is largely populated by bands starting out and breaking through. One thing is certain, if you're at Amsterdam's Paradiso for London Calling, you're guaranteed to catch a whole bunch of next big things. The autumn 2017 line-up is actually a 25th anniversary special and includes the likes of raw and rootsy American acts like Hurray for the Riff Raff, Pinegrove and Big Thief, the shoegaze pop of Japanese Breakfast and the garage indie of Australia's Alex Lahey.
