Eat Your Own Ears has built an enviable reputation for identifying potential talent, building the live profiles of the emerging artists it promotes. EYOE put on the first London shows for Animal Collective, Caribou, Franz Ferdinand, Four Tet and many Mercury nominated acts such as The xx, Anthony and the Johnsons, Bat For Lashes, The Horrors, Florence and the Machine, Anna Calvi, Metronomy and Django Django to name but a few.

Featured in Hajjaj's My Rock Stars video installation, Bumi is a contemporary British Nigerian singer-songwriter whose acoustic and evocative style is inspired by her multicultural heritage. Her richly textured sound combines jazz, high-life rhythms, Afro-beat grooves, reggae and blues, infused with folk and delivered with soul.

Born in Glasgow and based in London, Bumi has captivated audiences with standout live performances at the likes of Union Chapel, WOW (Women of the World) at the Royal Festival Hall, Ronnie Scott's, the Royal Opera House and the London Palladium.

After you’ve been on the rink, sit back, warm up and enjoy a drink in the Skate Lounge, where you can continue to enjoy the atmosphere and music, or head to the Fortnum’s Lodge bar, where a range of cocktails are on offer throughout the evening.
