nabokov Arts Club | 28 Feb - 1 Mar 2014


The nabokov Arts Club at VAULT Festival presents LONDON, UNDERGROUND

Friday 28th February & Saturday 1st March 10:30pm - 3am


After  years of blowing up the biggest and best live arts club nights in London, we'll be celebrating our 5th birthday in style at VAULT festival. LONDON, UNDERGROUND is a celebration of the city's performance culture over two nights of live art featuring some of the most exciting performers in London today:

An explosive DJ set by the MYSTERY JETS

A world premiere free running and beatboxing immersive performance: 3RUN VS BELLATRIX

Live hip hop set from DIZRAELI & DOWNLOW

Three short plays by multiple award winners ELLA HICKSON, NICK PAYNE & TOM WELLS

Live funk, ska, dub and hip hop from KING PORTER STOMP

Immersive adventures, interactive performances, spoken word, comedy & more…

An extravaganza of live theatre, music, cabaret, comedy, poetry and visual art wrapped up in a big fat party, the nabokov Arts Club, previously featured in The Guardian, Time Out’s Hot Picks and Critics’ Choice, and The Independent’s ‘Best Nights Out’, showcases the best new work, first, from the most exciting emerging artists alongside some of the biggest names in the business.

A headline world premiere performance sees internationally renowned and multiple Guinness World Record holding freerunning crew 3RUN, previously featured in everything from Casino Royale to award winning commercials for Xbox, collaborate with female world beatboxing champion BELLATRIX for an electric immersive live show.

A huge musical line up features verbal majestics and brain-popping turntablism in a live hiphop set from DIZRAELI & DOWNLOW. Fresh from the release of 'Everyone's A Winner - The Mixtape', in the last 12 months the pair have been sharing stages in the UK and France with legends like The Pharcyde, Mos Def, Foreign Beggars, Beardyman and DJ Format, and constructing a live hiphop show unlike anything you've seen before.


And back by popular demand, 8 piece funk and ska outfit KING PORTER STOMP return with their unique blend of massive horns, heavy bass and socially aware lyrics.


Plus we'll have extra Arts Club performances of our roof-raising new writing-live music mash-up, SYMPHONY, featuring plays by  ELLA HICKSON, NICK PAYNE and TOM WELLS; rounding off its 2-week run at VAULT.

Meanwhile, in dark corners and secret tunnels, have immersive adventures and interactive experiences and discover an array of artists performing hidden acoustic sets and everything from comedy to spoken word. Check out our blog for details of more artists as they're announced.
