DHP Family Hosts Two Surprise Mumford & Sons Shows at Oslo, Hackney

East London’s Oslo has once again proved it’s the favoured venue for the live music industry by playing host to two surprise Mumford & Sons shows.

The intimate 350 capacity venue in Hackney opened by DHP Family last year was handpicked as the place the band wanted to showcase material from their new album, Wilder Mind, due for release in May.

Fans were the first to know via an email, with tickets for the small London shows on March 9 and 10 selling out shortly after going on public sale at 9.30am each day just hours ahead of the band appearing on stage.

Anton Lockwood, DHP Family’s promotions director said: “It’s great to welcome Mumford & Sons to Oslo. The show last night (Monday 9 March) was a fantastic opportunity to see this stadium filling band air new material at close quarters. It’s brilliant to see Oslo attract such globally renowned artists and just goes to show that the venue is now considered the go-to, flagship venue of its size in London.”

DHP has already welcomed a host of established artists and upcoming names to Oslo since it opened in January 2014 including Temper Trap; TV on the Radio and Jessie J. The live music company has won kudos from  fans, artists, agents and promoters alike for making good on its promise to open the best equipped small venue for live music in London with its crystal clear sound rightly attracting the hottest line up of shows.

DHP Family, who also own Rock City, Rescue Rooms and Bodega in its home city of Nottingham as well as Thekla in Bristol, can justly claim its pedigree in running successful venues has been proved once again.
