Amplifier announced to play ‘Space Rocks’ in September

The award-winning Space Rocks is delighted to announce that BBC Sky at Night presenter Chris Lintott, acclaimed violinist Anna Phoebe and one of the UK’s most innovative rock bands, Amplifier, as the first live acts for the evening’s space-inspired live music set in the evening.

Space Rocks returns to indigo at The O2 on the 21 September 2019. A day-long festival of space exploration presented in association with the European Space Agency (ESA), it will once again be hosted by renowned science broadcaster Dallas Campbell, who will be introducing some of the most inspirational and talented people from the worlds of space exploration, art, music, and film for a unique celebration of the great beyond. Already confirmed for the event are ESA astronaut Tim Peake, Planetary scientist & BBC2’s Astronauts winner Suzie Imber and ESA rocket scientist Kate Underhill.


Genre-defying Amplifier has been described as progressive rock, space rock, psychedelic rock and alternative rock just to name a few. One thing we do know is that this is a band that do not sit still, always innovating and pushing the boundaries of their music and their listeners. Sci-fi and science fanatics, since their debut EP “The Astronaut Dismantles HAL” was released in 1999 (a reference to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey) they have released six albums and three more EPs and continue to play festivals and headline shows to their fanatical fan base through Europe and beyond.

Launched in 2018 at indigo at The O2, Space Rocks has grown internationally and continues to build on its huge momentum with appearances at the Latitude Festival and at ESA’s own enormous Open Day at ESTEC in The Netherlands, where ESA design and test spacecraft. Tickets are available now from
