SUNDAY PAPERS LIVE – CULTURE
With an aim to bring the magic back to live music, Sofar have a reputation for invite-only secret shows in living rooms across London. This makes them ideal Culture Section partners for the giant living room that is Sunday Papers Live, and for this Special Edition culture section they bring with them London indie pop four-piece Anteros, who have quickly established a fervent fan base of music lovers and critics alike.
Founded in London and based… all over the place, Sofar Sounds is a global movement that brings the magic back to live music by hosting secret gigs in intimate and unique spaces for emerging and developing artists in front of passionate music fans, capturing shows in video and distributing across their channels.
As an international, mostly volunteer-led community, Sofar is about providing authentic cultural experiences and creating a sense of community around people’s love for music in cities all around the world. Sofar’s community – founded on openness, compassion and mutual respect – now spans over 310 cities in 60 countries around the world and runs about 500 shows per months (of which about 70 are taking place just in London).
