Emerge Festival - Handel & Hendrix in London

Where is it?
On the top floor of a building that was once German composer George Frideric Handel’s abode lies legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix’s London digs. His revolutionary fusion of fierce guitar violence and melodic reverie changed music forever. Decked with ostrich feathers; shawls pinned to the walls; rugs piled high and a copy of Dylan‘s ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ said to be stained with Hendrix’s blood, this is the room where Jimi slept, partied and jammed.

What is it in a nutshell?
“Come on sugar let the good times roll…” Picture this: The year is 1966. Clubs are spilling into the streets. Psychedelic rock royalty – Jimi Hendrix – has just rolled into town and he’s holding a house party. Emerge will bring the swinging 60s magic and exclusive access to Hendrix’s first London pad for one night only. Expect DJs, dancing and drinks. Flares at the ready, it’s set to be wild.
