Peckham Rye Music Festival debuts in May 2016
It’s not just about Walthamstow, you know.
Peckham Rye is preparing to host a massive multi-venue, three-day festival in May, to celebrate the local music scene.
The Peckham Rye Music Festival is set over more than ten venues and features live music, labels and record shops and music workshops for young people – with guidance from the BBC’s presenters and producers.
More than 40 acts from across the globe will perform, including Juan Atkins, MM/KM (Kassem Mosse & Mix Mup), Leif, Seb Wildblood, Benji B, DJ Qu and Lakuti.
They join forces with fresh acts in The Bussey Building, CLF Art Cafe, Rye Wax, The White Horse and many more venues.
Dial Records boss and Smallville affiliate Lawrence will perform an exclusive London show centring around material from his album on Mule Musiq alongside much-loved classics.
Lakuti – one of the founding members of Süd Electronic night, from Berlin to the Bussey to recreate a bit of the old magic. Lakuti has previously played at Fabric, The End, Plastic People, Rex Club in Paris and many more.
Young people will get the opportunity to be involved in artist workshops and music production seminars, which will take place during the day on Friday 13 May.
The festival is also working with Reprezent Radio and Balamii Radio to provide workshops in radio production, featuring input and guidance from a host of BBC presenters and producers.
Peckham Rye Music Festival organisers said: “We’re so excited about bringing some of our favourite artists to Peckham to play alongside friends that make the local scene what it is. From the workshops we’ve got planned on the Friday, all-day dancing on the Saturday and the slightly more chilled plans for Sunday, it’s going to be a really fun weekend.”
