Nia Archives reveals plans to perform on train heading to Glastonbury

Rock

Nia Archives has announced that she will be performing a DJ set on her way to Glastonbury 2024.

The producer, DJ and songwriter will be holding a performance on a train ride on the way to the Worthy Farm festival later this month, making it possibly her most unconventional set to date.

Set to depart from Paddington train station in London on June 26, Nia has joined forces with Uber to travel to the site in style, and play a brief set for fans.

On the train, a carriage will be transformed into a music venue, and is set to be completed with a bespoke festival lighting rig and a full sound system. The en-route performance will arrive before she takes to the stage at the iconic UK live event, performing at the West Holts stage.

Seats for the train journey will be free of charge, and festival goers looking to claim their ticket can apply at the new website splityouruberridewithnia.com. After registering with the site, entrants will be entered into the draw. Winners will be announced on June 13 and those successful in their applications will be provided with refreshments from Uber Eats before embarking on the trip.

“Buzzin’ to be heading back to ma fave place on earth, Glastonbury,” Nia said of the new announcement (via Clash Music). “Never thought I’d be DJing in a carriage, but am sooo excited to start the party with ravers on the Uber train.”

Nia Archives was part of the second wave of artists announced for the 2024 edition of the West Holts stage at Glasto, and confirmed in April alongside Alogte Oho and His Sounds of Joy, Balming Tiger, The Skatalites, Jalen Ngonda and Matthew Halsall.

The first wave of acts confirmed for the stage featured Jungle, Jessie Ware and Justice as headliners, as well as Danny Brown, Black Pumas, Britany Howard, Sugababes and Squid.

As for the producer, earlier this year the 24-year-old dropped her latest studio release ‘Silence Is Loud’. The debut album was given a glowing four-star review by NME, with Kyann-Sian Williams writing: “She exudes confidence and no longer hides her voice behind her wicked production skills.

“With each project, Nia waters the seeds of ideas and concepts she has planted throughout her discography. And, on her debut album, they all blossomed into a rich, self-reflective record that shows the artist beyond the beats.”
