This exhibition, situated in the Terrace Rooms, South Wing, will be open throughout the event and admission is free. The spaces have limited capacity and therefore admission will be managed on a first come first served basis. 


Walt Disco
Walt Disco’s debut release Unlearning in 2022 picked up nominations for the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award and AIM Independent Album of the Year, while recent shows at SXSW, festivals across Europe and support stints with Primal Scream and Duran Duran have seen the Glasgow band reach new fanbases and cross genre divides. Their new LP The Warping, written on both sides of the Atlantic, marks a significant step forward from a band on the rise.

Baby’s Berserk
Following on from the critically acclaimed singles What I Mean (2020) and Toxic Kisses (2022), Baby’s Berserk’s highly anticipated self-titled full-length is now finally about to see the light. In the great tradition of Roxy Music, Throbbing Gristle and Malcolm McLaren, the band readily blend their sounds with fashion. If you’ve always wanted to see an electronic band with a punk attitude perform wearing a mix of haute couture and Flintstone-style rags, look no further.

The Lore of LOVERBOY

Somerset House presents the first exhibition on international fashion powerhouse Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, which celebrates 10 years of club to catwalk in 2024. 

One of Somerset House Studios’ original residents - whose studio is still based within our community of artists, makers and thinkers - LOVERBOY has been lauded for radically ripping up the fashion rulebook. Loved by the likes of Harry Styles and Tilda Swinton, LOVERBOY transcends disciplinary boundaries across art, design and music.
