Kew the Music began its life as Summer Swing at Kew Gardens and changed its name to Kew The Music in 2011. It is a series of concerts which take place annually and with the beautiful surrounds of Kew Gardens as their home it’s a festival atmosphere visitors never forget.

In 2018, to show the sheer breadth of the musical spectrum of this event, Jools Holland, The Gypsy Kings and 80s legends The Human League have been announced as headliners.

The Gypsy Kings

Nicolas Reyes & Tonnino Baliardo

The Human League

Jools Holland & his Rhythm And Blues Orchestra (featuring Gilson Lavis, and guest vocalists Ruby Turner & Louise Marshall)
