A sensational night as BBC Radio 6’s Funk & Soul Show goes live, featuring a live set by LAC, and DJ, actor and funkster-about-town Craig Charles manning the decks.
Bringing afrobeat dancing into the 21st Century, festival favourites London Afrobeat Collective blend the best of Fela Kuti’s original philosophy with a world of diverse current sounds.

An incendiary live act with bass-heavy rhythms guaranteed to make you move. 2013 saw LAC take the festival circuit by storm, building on their stunning debut when Michael Eavis personally invited them to open the West Holts (formerly the Jazz World stage) at Glastonbury. The band has staged rip-roaring performances at Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Shambala, Standon Calling and Wilderness festivals, not to mention performing tracks with indie stars Bombay Bicycle Club at Bestival, Latitude, Reading and Glastonbury.

The Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open beforehand for delicious food and drinks.
