SUNFALL FESTIVAL returns to South London’s Brockwell Park this summer with an exciting line-up featuring some of the biggest names in electronic music.
After making its critically acclaimed debut in 2016, the festival has cemented its status as the place to be this August for any discerning music lover. Brought to us by the same people behind XOYO, The Nest and Phonox as well as famous Croatian festivals Dimensions and Outlook, organisers have once again secured a stellar bill designed to reflect the melting pot of sounds currently coming out of London. Spanning an array of genres and styles such as jazz, electronica, hip hop, house, techno, drum & bass, dubstep, soul and disco, Sunfall is a place to revel in different scenes and sounds over one action-packed day and night.
Exactly like last year, this summer’s event will be split into two halves – attendees will party together by day in Brockwell Park before branching out across London’s many intimate venues for the festival’s infamous late night club sessions. This year’s day highlights include an appearance from Glasgow’s very own Jackmaster, now a household name all over the world; a live set from the ambitious and forward-thinking Floating Points and appearances from house and techno pioneers Theo Parrish and Larry Heard; the latter of whom will be playing his first live show in London in over 20 years.
Elsewhere on the line-up, hip-hop fans will be thrilled by the prospect of catching the ever elusive Jay Electronica and Madlib; the latter being one of the most prolific producers of the last twenty years and the creative mind behind some of the genre’s most revered tracks. Music fans will also be given the opportunity to witness a real life music legend in the flesh when Roy Ayers, aka ‘The Godfather of Neo-Soul’, takes to the stage for one of the day’s most highly anticipated sets.
Those hoping to continue the party into the early hours will have a selection of carefully curated after parties to choose from. Spread across some of London’s most revered venues, the night-time events will feature an exciting array of festival performers alongside some of the city’s best underground talent. Unique to Sunfall, this popular aspect of the festival has been designed to shine a light on London’s deeply eclectic and diverse nightlife culture.
This year’s late night session, running from 10pm till late, will feature a Worldwide takeover at the Jazz Café with appearances from Yussef Kamal, Romare and Gilles Peterson. Elsewhere, Croatia’s Dimensions Festival have curated a highly anticipated event over at Brixton Electric which will see sets from Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers, Amp Fiddler & Palms Trax while Village Underground will be taken over by a Number Mastermix featuring Glasgow’s Jackmaster and Denis Sulta alongside DJ Bone, Jayda G and more.
Bigger and better than ever before, Sunfall Festival takes place on 12th August. Day and Night tickets are currently available over at Resident Advisor.
