Sound Tracks is a one day music festival around London, focussed on venues near to the London Overground, and even performances on the trains, with lots of bands and artists including The Wave Pictures, We Are Willow, Woodpecker Wooliams, Boats, and Tawiah. Entry to the venues is by a wristband which costs £15 - see links etc below. Tickets don't cover travel though - you also need to bring your Oyster card.
"Usually the East London Line is just a simple means of getting around. On May 11th 2013 it becomes a destination.
SOUND TRACKS is a one day city music festival with a difference. You can hop on and off the Overground and catch an incredible line-up of performances at an array of locations along the line, from Dalston Roof Park to the Bussey Building in Peckham, via Canada Water Library, the Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe and the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton. And, uniquely, you can watch musicians perform on the trains between them too.
After a hugely successful event in 2011, the line’s recent expansion down to Peckham and beyond means things are going to be bigger and better this year - awesome new venues are being arranged and art installations popping up in the city’s most interesting spaces."
