In pictures: EE sponsors live busking series at Boxpark

Music events company Acoustic Live UK and venue Boxpark have collaborated to produce #Buskthebox, a series of free musical performances sponsored by wi-fi provider EE.


The events, which will continue throughout the summer, are being held at pop-up venue Boxpark in Shoreditch, east London. A variety of big names have performed so far, including Jeremy Passion, Bluey Robinson and Jake Quickenden.

The stage has been fashioned from a shipping container while the audience can enjoy the music from deck chairs on the grass. The events take place every Sunday from 1-4pm, with the next due to take place on 10 August.

Boxpark is also offering a competition for an artiste or group to perform at the weekly event by auditioning via a 15-second Instagram video clip.

On 17 August, earphones company and partner of #Buskinthebox Bass Buds will be hosting a takeover of the event. The afternoon will feature a pop-up nail-bar, an ice cream parlour from Hardy's and a set from DJ Scottie B. Merchandise from Bass Buds will also be on sale.

Rough Copy, runners up from ITV's The X Factor, have been booked to headline the event, with support confirmed from Jerome Thomas & The Soulnotes, Zoe Kypri, Ella Marie and Tom Kane.
