Village Underground is putting on a series of events throughout September to celebrate 15 years of independence - including shows from Paula Temple, Two Shell, Optimo, Channel One Soundsystem and more.

The London music venue will celebrate its fifteen years of independence during the month of September by hosting live performances, club nights, and concerts that represent the electronic genre.

Spanning 17 dates from Thursday, September 1 to Thursday, September 27 - the event series will feature music from across the electronic spectrum. Fans can expect house, bass music, afrobeats, and everything in between.

Then, on September 9, expect a fusion South African house, gqom, UK funky, and dancehall by up-and-coming superstars Mina & Bryte for their first ever UK headline show.

September 11 will see a spectacular Sunday show from Channel One Soundystem, and September 24 will see sets from Paula Temple, Samantha Togni and more.

Village Underground has announced its upcoming party series on social media, writing: "Join us to celebrate 15 years of independence, platforming new music and multi-disciplinary creators."

Ian Crawford (Live Programmer) and Neil Ellis (Club Programmer) say in a press statement: "Village Underground has been cultivating London's next generation of creatives for 15 years (way before we were even here, we're new!), to continue doing this we need to keep the door open for new audiences, relationships and innovation.

"From the Gqom sounds of Que DJ (Distruction Boyz) to the multi-faceted palettes of artists like SUCHI, Aletha and DEBONAIR, and from emerging new live artists such as Lunch Money Life, Kit Sebastian, Hatchie and Wu-Lu, together with many of our favourite promoters, partners and collectives, we are celebrating our 15 years while presenting the future of the venue as we hope to see it.

"For us, VU is a concept that is still in its early form, there is still so much to do and refine with our programming but we want to use our positions to promote a more diverse, equitable and fair industry through putting on the best events London has to offer."
