OnBlackheath

SE3 hosts its very own music festival, with family-friendly live music plus food and fun

There’s plenty of history on Blackheath – former hotspot for highway men and an urban oasis – but it wasn’t until 2014 that this expanse of common ground in south-east London hosted its first proper music festival. OnBlackheath returns this September for a fifth year, once again bringing together the worlds of music and food for some end-of-the-season festival action.

On the music front, there'll be the likes of Squeeze, Paloma Faith, Billy Bragg, Corinne Bailey Rae, De La Soul, Lightening Seeds and London Afrobeat Orchestra (performing Talking Heads) on the line up. 

Beyond the live acts, they'll be a food village where you can see pro cooks in action, and there'll be family fun of all varieties to get involved in. Find out more here.

While the line up changes every year, the ethos is the same and it's a feel good day out in a nice part of town. Being sponsored by John Lewis, you know it's never going to be too cutting edge, but as you would expect it is family friendly and well produced. They tend manage to pull off a respectable line up every year too!
