The Brixton Festival Brings it’s Own Vibe
The Sunday festival has become something on a vogue trend in recent years in the capital. Sound limitations and the strict conditions set by borough councils, has possibly led to a new breed of event catering to a different audience to that of say, Lovebox or SW4. The likes of Citadel and All Points East, have both ventured into this audience and now, South London’s Cross The Tracks is putting their name on the map.
Located in the Idyllic Brockwell Park, it’s a festival with a real identity beyond just the music. Championing a female-orientated line-up, the one day event looks to represent the culture surrounding their music of choice, which is excellent quality. Blurring the lines of Funk, Soul, Disco & Jazz comes an exquisite line up that celebrates the past while looking towards the future of the art-form. The event also features some of the best independent food traders in the country right now.
We’re hoping for clear skies and a soulful, authentic vibe. Here are our favourite acts that we expect to bring the latter in Spades..
Headlining the festival as part of her magnificent comeback in 2019, is the mercurial disco queen Chaka Khan. Obviously, go to here classics like ‘Feel For You’, but stay to here some of her epic new album live
Been on our radar for a while now, the South London prince of UK Soul music has been blending retro styles with a contemporary flare.
Another South London gem proving that south of the river, there’s a serious movement going on. More than just an artist, Poppy is a fantastic example of the youthful identity of 2019. Using her platform to speak on on issues of identity, gender and sexuality.
