Jon Hopkins is a London based electronic artist, producer and classically trained composer, whose solo and collaborative works have received widespread acclaim, as well as Grammy, Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello nominations. 

Hopkins has forged a reputation for music that marries the dance floor to the devotional, and for live performances that are visceral, generous and charged with a rapt, sensuous beauty. His output flows from rugged techno to transcendent choral music, from solo acoustic piano to psychedelic ambient.

Initially gaining exposure through his work with Brian Eno and Coldplay in the mid ‘20s, Hopkins gradually found his voice as a solo artist, blending intricately crafted beats with serene, meditative textures. He has many producer, remixer and film credits to his name (including Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones and Gareth Edwards’ classic indie sci-fi film Monsters, which earned an Ivor Novello nomination for Best Original Score) also the National Theatre Live production of Hamlet

The Singularity worldwide tour saw him perform sold out solo live shows and festival dates across the globe. This was followed by the Polarity tour which tethered together the two disparate elements of harsh and fragile in his music in concert halls across Europe, including Royal Albert Hall in November ’21. Festival appearances as far away as the USA New Zealand and Australia have since followed and 2023 saw select exclusive appearances across the globe, including Hopkins’ debut at the BBC Proms series, again at London’s Royal Albert Hall
