Visions Of Trees
Due to open on September 15, XOYO is a unique new events space, set up as an alternative platform and venue for London’s live music, club and arts scene. XOYO is the conversion of an old printing works, the insides of which have been purpose built. In a prime London location – literally yards from Old St tube – it will accommodate the very best in club nights, gigs and special events.
From independent live promoters perspective like Eat Your Own Ears and Upset the Rhythm, to giants like SJM and Live Nation, XOYO is a welcomed addition to the live circuit with its mid-sized live room – capacity: 450 – it’s perfect for upcoming shows from the likes of Mount Kimbie, Dan Deacon, Monarchy, Errors and No Age.
Tom Baker of Eat Your Own Ears and Field Day says of the venue: “I am really excited about hosting Eat Your Own Ears gigs at XOYO, London has been crying out for a new multi-room venue.
