Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett has announced that he will be launching his second live music venue in London, which is set to open in February 2020. Called Lafayette @ Goods Way, the venue promises to host live music performances, as well as club nights and “bespoke one-off events.”
Lovett previously opened his first live music venue Omeara @ Flat Irons Square in 2016 and, with the opening of another space, he is aiming to revitalize London’s live music scene, following the recent closing of venues around the city.
Lafayette, which will be larger than Omeara’s 320-capacity space and will be situated in London’s King’s Cross, will be booked by Communion, the same live promotions team behind Omeara’s bookings. Lovett is a co-founder of Communion Music.
