Working closely with Africa Express team, Damon Albarn, Greater London Authority and the culture team at Waltham Forest led by Sam Hunt (Creative Director), we staged festival of solidarity on the day the UK was originally set to lead the EU.
We flew in 52 to artists from all around the world and produced a spectacular and joyful five-hour headline show taking place in this diverse borough to demonstrate loud and clear how collaboration can break down boundaries.
Artists on the line-up included Batida, Damon Albarn, Django Django, Ellie Rowsell (Wolf Alice), Gruff Rhys, Imarhan, Joan As Police Woman, Mista Silva, Moonchild Sanelly, Morena Leraba, Muzi, Onipa, Rokia Traoré, Sibot and The Good, The Bad & The Queen. Plus a surprise performance from Blur.
