The Roundhouse has always tried to push boundaries throughout its illustrious history. During the 1960s it gained a reputation for putting on revolutionary, avant-garde theatre such as Evening with British Rubbish. In the 70s it held legendary raves and after parties, before closing in part of the 80s due to financial troubles. Eventually, in the mid-90s, the philanthropist Torquil Norman bought the Roundhouse. He saw the venue as an opportunity to promote the best of modern youth culture, and subsequently made it the space it is today.
Since opening in 1964 the Roundhouse has become a famous music venue, welcoming many legendary artists to perform there. Rock ‘n’ roll greats Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Ramones, The Clash and others have all played on its stage. In recent years, the Roundhouse has clung to its privileged lineups. Following its refurbishment in 2016, the Roundhouse has hosted the likes of James Brown, Jay-Z and Bob Dylan.
