Now in its third year, the Soundcrash Funk & Soul Weekender is stepping things up a gear. Having sold out their old site for the last two years, the festival is moving to the heart of Brighton this year, with a new site right on Brighton Beach. We’re sure that local music lovers are going to flock to this celebration of big brass, hip-hop, future soul, tropical, Afrobeat, disco, house, and everything funky in-between.
Having earlier announced some pretty tasty acts, including contemporary jazz legend Kamasi Washington, electronic music duo Maribou State, and renowned DJ Gilles Peterson, the festival have unveiled a host of exciting new names to entice you into attending. Highlights include the Craig Charles’ brilliant Funk and Soul Show, which is hugely popular in Brighto,; rising Ninja Tune star Jordan Rakei will be showcasing his inimitable soul and jazz with a live performance, while deep house fans will be hyped for an appearance from Marshall Jefferson.
The festival takes place from Friday 17th May – Sunday 19th May, although early-bird tickets have already flown out you can still get a weekend ticket from around £130, or day tickets for about £50, if you’re quick. Check the full line-up below:
