The London Remixed Festival returns for two days in London at Rich Mix, in the heart of Shoreditch
Following last year’s success, which saw the likes of Auntie Flo, Nubiyan Twist, and Dub Colossus take to the stage, the London Remixed Festival returns with an equally diverse programme.
Friday’s proceedings are headed up by John Fairhust, electro-swing/bass maestro Odjbox and Dj Chris Tofu. There are also panels and discussions going on throughout the day.
The Saturday sees three stages specially curated to satisfy the most adventurous of musical palates. The Tropicarnival – hosted by Movimentos and Wormfood – are bringing the beats with the ten-strong London Afrobeat Collective heading up the bill, with support from fusion specialists Nomad Collective and the Cuban rhythm crew Orchestra Bombo. Sam and the Womp (pictured) headline the riotous Polka Club, backed up by the New York Brass Band, with the Folk Ghetto headed up by Stompin’ Dave Allen and the exquisite klezmer group Don Kipper, who were recently awarded Best European Newcomers Valley Klezmer Festival.
Early bird tickets have all sold-out, but you can still get single day tickets and two-day passes through Skiddle.
