This year that means the Barbican Music Stage is headlined by Reggae forefathers Toots and the Maytals and Desert-blues legends Tinariwen, with the likes of Funk outsider Doug Hream Blunt (with the Messengers), Sierra Leone’s Bubu icon Janka Nabay and Psychedelic collective The Heliocentrics, while you can also see dance and performance from the likes of Boy Blue Entertainment and the Walthamstow Youth Circus.
Set in the beautiful surroundings of Walthamstow’s Lloyd Park, two days of music, dance, film, spoken word, arts & crafts, food and family activities will be delivered in partnership with local organisations. The festival’s programme always features the best of local talent alongside established artists from around the globe.
