ICMP is delighted to have celebrated the end of the latest academic year with our OUTRO end of year party. 

This year’s event featured fifteen artists and bands from our current crop of brilliant musical talent who took to the stage at the iconic Nambucca venue in Archway, North London. 

The event took place in August and was one of the first opportunities for our students, tutors and the rest of the ICMP community to come together to perform and hear live music after many months of restrictions. 

Following a call-out to students in March, the bands/artists were all auditioned live at ICMP in front of a panel of judges made up of James Brister, Carla Monroe, and Mark Roberts.


Jonathan Whiskerd, ICMP's Head of Undergraduate Programmes, said: "It was an absolute pleasure to attend this event and to - finally - get to hear students perform live again!"

"I was so impressed by the depth and breadth of talent on show. It was brilliant to see so many students there in support: the atmosphere was fantastic."

For me, attending these events is the most rewarding aspect of working at ICMP and on this occasion, I got to meet many students I had only ever spoken to online!"

"It was wonderful to be in a live environment again and to be reminded of the buzzing creative community we have at ICMP." 


Commenting on the night, ICMP band Hello Amnesia said: "We're as ready we'd ever be to take a step to a bigger stage and were really excited to play."

The full lineup of artists included:

Blab • Bous • Conor Houston • Edenveil • Edidion • Fabrizio Toccaceli and the Touchskys • Hello Amnesia • Laertis • Leadmetoland • Macie Nyah • Maisie • Phill Vidler • Rookes • So Sha

Congratulations to all the performers and thanks to the attendees and well done to everyone who has been studying with us this year.
