The legend says that everything started back in 1279 when the first Camberwell Fair took place. 700 years later, music lovers, foodies, and the local community can still enjoy a day-out on the borough’s green.
So, there’s no need to travel miles and miles out of London for a good and proper festival this July because, Wormfood, Pexmas, and Continental Drifts are bringing the party to Camberwell. On the 22nd, two stages, stands, games, and dozens of musicians will bring the South London Park to life.
Like every community event worthy of this name, there’s something to everyone’s liking. I mean, something quality. Let’s start from the Wormfood Stage… Directly from Manchester, The Mouse Outfit will bring their refined but realistic hip-hop, built on jazzy beats and Mancunian-related rhymes.
Then, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a quintessential South London artist: Afrikan Boy and his urban sound extending itself from grimes to West Africa. Also, from the Gulf of Guinea region, but mainly London based, Kakatsitsi will let their drums resonate throughout the park playing traditional rhythms and displaying their absolute musicianship.
Brighton based Lebeaux will offer a soulful and rhythmic set surely able to soothe yourself. Though, if you’re looking for more “brassy” and uptempo sounds, Tantz and Balaphonics will be there to let you shake your booty and thoughts away.
So, take the Saturday off, support Camberwell Fair and…let’s party like it’s 1279!
