Indie band The Futureheads opened the free event yesterday (22 March) with an acoustic set.

From now until 4 May acts including Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Alt-J and Molotov Jukebox will perform on the main stage every weekday between 5.30pm-6.30pm.

In addition there will be a number of secret, unannounced gigs from some of the industry’s biggest artists on fringe stages around the station.

This is the second year the station has hosted the Station Sessions Festival, produced in partnership with Place PR, Emerge Media and owner of St Pancras International Highspeed 1. All proceeds will go to The Prince's Trust.

For the finale of the event on Friday 4 May, organisers will be partnering with Camden Crawl to launch the north London festival.

Wendy Spinks, head of revenue development at HS1 said: "The station is busier than ever and it’s fantastic that so many of our customers will be able to enjoy high quality music for free in the coming weeks. This is a unique proposition with a proven track record as a great platform for new music. It creates a marvellous atmosphere for all visitors to the station, whether they’re travelling, dining or shopping."
