DJ SPOONY’s Garage Classical began just five years ago with the seamless partnership between DJ Spoony and composer KATIE CHATBURN. After a huge welcome by UK fans and a string of successful live shows, the stunning combination of classical and garage music made its way to the mainstream.
Fast forward to October 2019, DJ SPOONY wowed the nation with the release of the album Garage Classical, teamed with Chatburn and the 36-piece Ignition Orchestra. The same month, he brought his high-octane Garage Classical show to London’s iconic venue, The Royal Albert Hall, in a celebration of the garage era.
Packed full of re-imagined classics such as ‘Flowers’, ‘21 Seconds’ and ‘Sweet Like Chocolate’, Garage Classical features vocals from iconic artists such as Sugababes, Paloma Faith, Lily Allen, Emeli Sandé, Raleigh Ritchie and many more.
The popularity of garage since its inception over 20 years ago, when it swept over the airwaves, clubs, charts and streets of Britain, has stayed strong. DJ SPOONY is one of the key players, keeping the genre alive and inspiring a new generation of garage artists.
Now, DJ Spoony Presents Garage Classical is coming to Kew Gardens, bringing music fans a high-energy show and a re-ignited passion for garage, but with a classical twist…
Also announced for 2022’s Kew The Music are: VAN MORRISON, JAMES BLUNT, WILL YOUNG + JAMES MORRISON, BANANARAMA and GIPSY KINGS. The week-long series of concerts will take place between 5th – 10th July 2022.
The perfect destination for a summer’s afternoon of music and relaxing on a picnic blanket, guests are welcome to bring their own food and drink, or to enjoy refreshments at the open-air bars and tasty street food stalls. For music lovers of all generations, a sensational summer at Kew awaits.
