San Fermin Tickets

San Fermin Tickets

San Fermin Steals the Indie Scene

Classical music melds with hipster Brooklyn indie rock on San Fermin's haunting self-titled debut. It's possible that the only thing better than listening to this perfect record at home with headphones on is seeing them take the stage live with an eight-piece live ensemble - it will blow your socks off.


San Fermin, the band fronted by Ellis Ludwig-Leone, is ready to show 2014 how it's done, with shows lined up in early 2014 from Brooklyn all the way south to New Orleans. You can expect more chances to score San Fermin tickets in the future as they work out their schedule and become part of the lineup for more popular festivals, like the Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta.


Ludwig-Leone was classically trained at Yale and wrote his debut album while holed up in a studio in the mountains of Canada. He completed the whole album in six weeks and had his friend Allen Tate, along with Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, help out on vocals. He was in many bands in high school and college, but he didn't make music the center of his career until he was finishing up at Yale. Also notable: he worked with prominent composer Nico Muhly, known for his work with Sufjan Stevens, Grizzly Bear and Antony and the Johnsons, on a number of different film scores and operas. Their label, Downtown Records, has released other awesome acts, such as Cyndi Lauper, the Cold War Kids, Eagles of Death Metal and David Gray, just to name a few.


Although backed by other talented musicians, San Fermin is primarily the work of composer and songwriter Ludwig-Leone, who hails from Brooklyn, New York. A dazzling blend of rock, chamber-pop and modern classical composition, the unique sound of the band's music appeals to a variety of audiences. Ludwig-Leone's songwriting focuses on issues ranging from youth and nostalgia to anxiety and heartache, and he somehow manages to blend them all together into original sentiments.


During his studies of musical composition at Yale, he dabbled in performances with a handful of bands and teamed up with Nico Muhly to help compose a few different projects, but his real breakthrough didn't come until he fully committed himself to his work after college. His first album, "San Fermin," gained him considerable praise from music critics across the country, from Paul Krugman of the New York Times to indie music review site Pitchfork to NPR.

Hit Albums

"San Fermin", the self-titled debut album, was released in September 2013. The album received attention from notable publications around the country, including Pitchfork's declaration of the lead single, "Sonsick", as being "deliciously infectious" and NPR, who called the record "one of the year's most surprising, ambitious and evocative records." The album is acollection of individual songs and a cohesive, thematic record that plays seamlessly from start to finish. He composed the lyrics and arrangements in full before bringing in collaborators to enhance the tracks with orchestrations and vocals.

Show Experience

Ludwig-Leone is joined onstage by an entire eight-piece live ensemble that knows how to deliver gloriously epic operatic and electronic break beats complete with horns, strings and other bells and whistles in songs that NPR declares are "as easy to love as they are to admire." San Fermin tickets are in high demand ever since The New Yorker lauded the band's onstage performances, so be sure to grab your tickets early.
