Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2017

blogmedia-79135.jpg

The Worldwide Awards are back for another year. Returning to London’s KOKO once again, it’s an evening dedicated to championing the best in underground music. As ever, it’s about celebrating the best of 2016 while shining a light on the acts coming through for the year ahead.

SATURDAY 21ST JANUARY 2017

The Worldwide Awards are about showcasing special one-off collaborations, beefed up DJ sets and everything in between. As an event, it’s one-of-a-kind, running for eight hours; a musical marathon hosted and curated by Gilles himself, showing the same reverence for club bangers as for jazz opuses.

Last year’s winners included Kamasi Washington and Anderson .Paak (who performed on the night), while it was the debut year for the super band – led by ascendent drummer and beatmaker Moses Boyd – who provided the backdrop for acts through the night like Eska and Little Simz. 2017 sees the super band back in the mix, along with a live stream for the people at home.

Line-up announcements coming in the run up to the event.

Noname
Previous Chance The Rapper and Mick Jenkins collaborator and female MC of the moment Noname is set to bring the fresh, poignancy of her critically acclaimed project “Telefone” to the Camden Stage.

Event Review: We Out Here Festival (Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire; Thursday 15th to Sunday 18 August 2019)
