There’s an unmistakable international flavour to this year’s Summer Series and Bomba Estéreo deserve to be your new favourite band. Hailing from Colombia, they’re the living, breathing embodiment of a fun night out.

Their music has been described as "electro tropical" and "psychedelic cumbia", taking in a global palette of sounds that run from pop to electro. Appropriately, according to founding member Simón Mejía and singer Li Saumet, the band's name is a Colombian term for "a really cool, awesome, bad ass party" and with A-listers like Will Smith or Sofi Tukker previously joining the Bomba posse for an infectious dancefloor collaboration, it feels like everyone wants to be on this invite list.

With a string of Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations under their belt, Bomba Estéreo were invited to tour as support for Arcade Fire’s Everything Now World Tour, which saw them pick up a whole new family of fans across Europe and the US. In 2018, the band reached the worldwide Top 500 most listened to artists on Spotify, so a return to London for their biggest headline date so far with a new record is big news.

Anticipating a set list filled to the brim with party vibes, we can’t wait to welcome Bomba Estéreo’s unique high energy fiesta to light up our Summer Series stage.
