A brand new venue is heading to Central London this summer, Outernet Live.
The new venue is said to be the largest live music space to be built in central London since the 1940s housing up to 2000 people.
Outernet Live will take over a space underneath The Now Building on the corner of Oxford Circus and Charing Cross Road, an area famed for past performances from the likes of Elton John, David Bowie, and The Rolling Stones.

“This area of London has an amazing tradition of brilliant venues but many of them have sadly gone,” said Philip O’Ferrall, CEO and President Outernet Global.
“It’s absolutely vital that artists and fans have a place to go in the centre of our city to perform and enjoy live music and we will welcome many other types of events to our venue as well.”
The team behind Outernet Live will also take over the now-closed 12 Bar Club in Highbury & Islington with an increased capacity of 350 people.

“We have two amazing venues that sit at the heart of London’s first music, media and culture district. Launching Outernet Live is going to be very special as we combine a world-class venue with the power of the wider Outernet campus,” said Outernet Live founders Robert Butters and Karrie Goldberg.
The 2,000 capacity venue is also set to feature 23,000 sq ft of floor-to-ceiling LED screens with the ‘world’s largest warp screens’ in an immersive media experience, according to the venue.
The venue is now open for bookings to kick the summer off. Find out more about Outernet Live here.
