This summer, The Nest Collective invites you to discover extraordinary music around the campfire.
Every week from May to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces under city skylines, and listen to amazing music by artists from all over the world.
We come together, in a simple way that people have done for thousands of years, around the fire, with food, drink, music and each other.
The performances are unamplified, allowing you to get up close and personal, and hear the artists’ music in a very intimate way.
