Sunfall Festival 2017 – Preview

Sunfall festival returns to South London’s Brockwell park for a second year of music across one day and one night, bringing together all corners of the musical landscape, and cementing its position as the place to be for any discerning music lover this summer.

Brought to us once again by the team behind some of London’s most important clubs and international festivals, Sunfall Festival returns on the 12th August 2017 with an ever diverse spectrum of music on offer. Like last year, the festival will branch out across London for the night events, showcasing artists from the festival in some of the most intimate venues around the city. There are few events this summer that will showcase as vast a selection of styles, tying together influences from around the world that make London the melting pot of musical styles that it has become.

Sunfall 2016 crowd

We covered the 2016 edition of Sunfall and we’re not sure quite how last year could be topped, but somehow the lineup has gone over and above what we could have expected, from flagship homegrown talent to genuine icons of not just genres but of popular music in general. Highlights this year include a live set from Floating Points, DJ sets from Worldwide FM/ Brownswood head honcho Gilles Peterson, house and techno pioneers Larry Heard and Theo Parrish, an appearance by Stones Throw stalwart and loop digger extraordinaire Madlib, and a chance to see genuine musical legend with a live performance from Roy Ayers.

This years Sunfall night sessions throws up the opportunity to extend the party and see some of the festivals performers combine with the best underground talent and some of London’s most exciting promoters to take us through to the early hours. An idea unique to Sunfall, this careful curation of evening events gives festival goers the chance to experience exactly what makes London the hub of nightlife culture that it has become. This year features a Worldwide takeover at the Jazz Café featuring Gilles Peterson, Romare, and Yussef Kamaal, Rhythm Section all night at the wonderful Bianca Road Brewery in Peckham, and a Dimensions Festival curated event at Brixton Electric featuring Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers, Amp Fiddler & Palms Trax.

After last years festival, the Sunfall team laid down a marker to other festivals around the capital. This is how it can be done, and it works. If the 2017 edition can prove to go even bigger and better, then Sunfall will undoubtedly cement itself as the festival of choice for music in London, and finally one that it deserves.
