This June 29th sees the launch of a pop-up exhibition, courtesy of Mumford & Sons and Gentlemen of the Road, following the release of the band’s ‘Johannesburg’ mini-album with Baaba Maal, The Very Best, and Cape Town’s favourites, Beatenberg which took place on the 17th June.

The pop-up will showcase the work of some of the best South African artists and photographers, whom Mumford & Sons were inspired by on their South African tour earlier this year. The band witnessed an explosion in live music performance and youth culture.

SEEN keenly anticipates live performances from Beatenberg and The Very Best, a Q&A with the makers of the documentary, South African wine tasting, DJ sets, and an evening of film by acclaimed South African directors, curated by Johannesburg independent cinema, The Bioscope. These exciting events will be scheduled throughout the pop-up’s duration, which will be open to fans right up to Mumford & Sons’ London Hyde Park show on the 8th July.

Johannesburg – a South African Experience at Lights of Soho, London is hosted in association with South African Tourism.
