The London A Cappella Festival 2015 takes place January 29-31 at Cadogan Hall on Kings Place. It’s a different breed of music festival that ditches instrumentals and sees singers performing without any backing tracks – so it’s no surprise that the term A Cappella means ‘without instrumental accompaniment.’ Get it?

So if you are a fan of haunting, emotive and uplifting vocals that don’t rely on auto-tune or gimmicky beats, then this is the festival for you. There are also vocal workshops for budding or seasoned singers to partake, and to brush up on their skills.

The line-up offers the cream of A Cappella groups from all over the globe. The USA is being represented by the group Straight No Chaser, which is currently touring its latest album Happy Hour. Here’s a video for the album track I Want You Back:

They’re joined by UK groups The King’s Singers – a critically-acclaimed, double-Grammy winning sextet that hosts singing schools, and five-time Grammy winners The Swingles, whose next album Deep End is launching early 2015.

Here’s a break down of the other superb acts:

  • Anúna (Ireland)
  • Club for Five (Finland)
  • MICappella (Singapore)
  • Countermeasure (Canada)
  • Accent (various)
