TheirStories: PLANNINGTOROCK & Krishna Istha in conversation

TheirStories returns to the calendar at The Standard, London for the start of their A/W ‘23 season, with a very special in-conversation with seminal queer singer-songwriter, producer, composer, DJ and director Jam Rahuoja Rostron, better-known as PLANNINGTOROCK. PLANNINGTOROCK's influence on the musical landscape over the last two decades cannot be underestimated, especially for LGBTQ+ artists. After four acclaimed studio albums, they are an internationally recognised force in queering dance music, collaborating with artists such as The Knife, Peaches, Christine & The Queens, Robyn & Romy (The XX), as well as soundtracking Chanel’s AW20 fashion show alongside Michel Gaubert.

Interviewing Jam will be groundbreaking screenwriter, comedian, theatre-maker and longtime friend Krishna Istha.

Doors 4pm
Talk starts at 4.30pm
