If disco often gets a slightly cheesy rep, then a new event called Brixton Disco Festival is aiming to ditch all mentions of The Bee Gees and flares in favour of something altogether cooler.
Celebrating the credible end of the disco spectrum, this new all-dayer takes place on Saturday April 28th across various Brixton venues including the Ritzy, Electric Brixton and Windrush Square. Each will play host to a whole bunch of live artists, alongside DJs, a record fair, screenings and an exhibition at the Black Cultural Archive.
The bill includes sets from long-time Brit disco torchbearer Joey Negro, disco sages such as Ray Mang, Bill Brewster, Frank Broughton, Crazy P Soundsytem and record dealer-cum-party-rocker Nick The Record.
Bonafide disco royalty will be gracing us too, in the form of singer Jocelyn Brown – whose vocals have adorned both a million hits and bootlegs, and also graced the mic on the legendary last night of NYC's Paradise Garage.
And we forgot to mention: there’ll even be a roller disco. So rock down to (near) Electric Avenue this April.
Tickets for Brixton Disco Festival are available here.
