Camberwell Fair: Summer sounds come to the Green
“After the stonking success of Camberwell Fair’s Summer Series Part 1 on Myatt’s Fields Park, we are thrilled to announce Part 2 on Camberwell Green from this Saturday 14 August! Over the next 6 weeks of August and September, Saturday afternoons will be filled with live music from the hottest global and local musicians, artists and bands on the green for everyone to enjoy!”
Camberwell Fair Summer Series has been created for local communities to enjoy live music for free, safely in their communities. All performances take place on Camberwell Green 3-6pm, so bring a picnic, get ready to dance and enjoy the best live music celebrating the vibrant and diverse cultures of Camberwell.
Saturday 14 August: Kicking off the series will be Sister Cookie with her dynamite sound and dose of funk-soul-blues medicine.
Saturday 21 August: Grupo Lokito take to the stage with a modern-day cocktail of music fusing Congolese grooves with the fire of Cuban music.
Saturday 28 August: A stellar line-up featuring WheelUP (Tru Thoughts), Tiawa (Tru Thoughts) and Chiminyo (Gearbox).
Saturday 4 September: Camberwell Fair Artists in Residence take over the Summer Series. Artists & Mentors K.O.G., Tawiah, Gaika and Shirley Tetteh have been working with 12 emerging artists as part of the programme supported by PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund to test new ideas, collaborate and develop their practice. South East London legend Joe Milli will close the party with a mix of afro, soul, house, funk and grime.
Saturday 11 September: things get even hotter on the green with The Heatwave vs Tash LC x Fehdah.
Saturday 18 September: Closing the Summer Series on Camberwell Green are The Dylema Collective, a talented collective of musicians put together by female lead Dylema that blend contemporary jazz, poetry and soulful harmonies.
NB: These events are intimate, pop-up performances for smaller audiences, given the impact of Covid-19 in our communities. There are no additional stages, stalls, food trucks or bars. Camberwell Fair organisers ask that any rubbish is taken away with you to ensure our green flag park is kept litter-free.
