‘not-to-be-missed progressive jazz bands from the burgeoning European scene.’ Downbeat Magazine

‘Inspired border-crossing idea’ The Guardian

In 2012 Match&Fuse grew into a significant presence on the European music scene.

Double-billed tours in the UK, France, Italy, Norway, Germany, Denmark and Ireland added to the huge success of the very first Match&Fuse Festival 2012 in London, UK.

This end-of-year-bash invites all to come and celebrate with great music fundraising for a very worthy cause. Special guests will pop up from across Europe and an open-stage jam featuring some of London’s finest musicians will end the night.

WaterAid enables the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water and sanitation. Together with improved hygiene, these basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods, forming the first essential step in overcoming poverty.



In essence, imagine a four-way cage match between Frank Zappa, Loose Tubes, Stravinsky and Meshuggah.

Jazzcore disco-house ensemble who take pride in defying convention; blending house beats and dub bass lines, with jazz inflected improvising and glitch

LAURA JURD QUARTET ft. Joonas Leppanen
Original compositions and traditional melodies fuse elements of European folk, Jazz and Classical traditions, creating a unique and distinctive soundworld.

They are joined by Finnish drummer/composer Joonas Leppanen, whose ensemble Big Blue is currently creating waves across the European jazz scene

Open Stage Xmas Party

The Match&Fuse night on Friday at The Vortex with WorldService Project + Pixel + Roller Trio is now SOLD OUT, rather excitingly
