About Upstart Crow



The UK’s Only Songwriter Festival Returns to Spitalfields

After its successful launch in 2014, and an even bigger follow-up performance last year, Upstart Crow Festival returns to Spitalfields for its fifth year on Sunday 30 September 2018. At the tail end of the summer’s festival season, UCF presents eight hours of original live music by up-and-coming acts at the UK’s only festival dedicated to songwriting.

Behind Upstart Crow is a collective of singer songwriters who wanted to create a festival that celebrates exceptional songwriting and magnetic performances. Hand-picked from London’s vibrant music scene and beyond, this year’s festival presents 13 + acts from a variety of genres, ensuring there will be something for everyone.

The Upstart Crow team are working on this years line-up which will be announced over the coming weeks.

The festival is FREE and runs from 12-8pm under the canopy in Bishops Square, Spitalfields
