After last year’s stellar debut, Cross The Tracks, the Sunday fest specialising in jazz, funk and soul, is returning to Brockwell Park for a second year. And the line-up is looking pretty much pitch-perfect. Among the first names to be announced are disco heroes Sister Sledge, guitar-heavy Tuareg band Tinariwen, Afrofuturist crew Shabaka And The Ancestors and genre-hopping pianist Ashley Henry will all be performing, joined by ace DJs including Norman Jay, Gilles Peterson and Jazzie B. Other acts confirmed include Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Theon Cross, Pip Millet, Lynda Dawn and Aaron Taylor. Once again, you’ll be fuelled by more than 40 street food traders and some of the city’s finest craft beer brewers. This is one festival where absolutely no one is going home hungry.
It all takes place on Sunday June 6 – two days after Brockwell Park welcomes new indie-leaning fest Wide Awake, and one day after it hosts spangly pop bash Mighty Hoopla. Tickets are on sale now – you’ll want to grab ’em fast.
Cross The Tracks is at Brockwell Park on June 7. Check out Time Out's festival guide here.
