Bakar announces UK headline tour

The Camden newcomer’s debut mixtape ‘BADKID’ is out now.

Camden-based newcomer Bakar released his brilliant debut mixtape ‘BADKID’ last month, and has now announced he’s set to take it on his first UK headline tour later this year.

We called the mixtape “an intriguing entrance which presents a genre-bending new artist as tied to indie-rock as he is to hip-hop and grime.”

Bakar himself described ‘BADKID’ as “a voice for the alternative. For the kids that what to do what they want. No restrictions.”

The new tour begins in Leeds on 29th September, and finishes up with a hometown show at The Dome on 9th October.
