Live: Afropunk Fest London, Landing Firmly

As the wet weather continues throughout the UK, Afropunk Fest London lands and with improvements to boot. This year they took over new event space Printworks in Canada Water, London with two music stages, two marketplaces, a food court and various art installations. A great choice of venue with its industrial setting and in particular the upper-level with its edgy factory aesthetic. Afropunk’s second visit to London was already feeling like a well-needed alternative to the mainstream festival season, especially with its moral thread of protest for injustice.

Review: 32 Londoners. Don Letts on Joe Strummer.

Nicola Greenbrook took a captivating trip on the Coca-Cola London Eye to hear Don Letts open his mind (and heart) about the iconic Joe Strummer. Music for the people by the people.
