The West End Live 2016 with MasterCard will be held on the 18th and 19th of June in 2016. The event will take place in Trafalgar Square, and will feature performances from some of the biggest names in the music industry. Now in its 12th year, the West End Live extravaganza is one of the biggest musical showcases of the year. The event attracts crowds of more than 500,000 people over a two-day weekend, making it one of the largest events of its type in the world.
The event is organised by the City Council of Westminster and the Official London Theatre. Even the Mayor of London lends his support to this massive celebration.
