It’s time to get your groove on at this year’s Brixton Disco Festival. Medya Gungor reports
If all of the “back-to-normal” September socialising hasn’t got the better of you yet and you’re still keen to cut some shapes this weekend, Brixton Disco Festival has a serious line-up in store.
After completely selling out their Saturday event, the festival announced an additional date this Friday 8 October for all those who missed out on Saturday tickets.
Starting with a pre-party at Brixton Village from 6pm on Friday, DJ Paulette will be spinning outdoors in support of the Brixton Village Lates Soundsystem, alongside residents the Handson Family and Mathias Linzatti.
With the intention of creating space for Black artists in electronic music genres and beyond, they will be showcasing London’s rising talent including DJ and producer Usher Lavelle.
Once the crowd have warmed up and enjoyed the tasty offers from Brixton Village’s restaurants, Electric Brixton opens its doors from 10.30pm to welcome the one and only Todd Terje in a rare London appearance.
Terje made his name with a string of remixes and re-edits in the mid 2000s, his breakthrough to wider success came with the huge crossover success of Inspector Norse in 2012, propelling him to headline shows around the world.
In support of Terje, Natasha Diggs will be making her first post-lockdown London appearance. The NYC based DJ and producer has built an incredible following through her online streams, creating waves with her diverse music stylings.
DJ Paulette will return to round the evening off at Electric Brixton, with her dynamic and uplifting ability to instinctively read and flip a room.
Her award-winning PR work for Talkin Loud, Mercury Records and work overseas with Radio FG (France) have earned her gold records, awards and much international recognition and respect.
As if Friday’s event wasn’t looking impressive enough, Saturday looks to be even crazier as the festival is spread across multiple venues in Brixton including Electric Brixton, Prince of Wales’ Rooftop & Club, Brixton Village and even the classic Ritzy Upstairs.
Disco heads can look forward to being truly ‘Lost in Music’ as the likes of Dimitri From Paris take to the stage, along with Crazy P, Jocelyn Brown and Mighty Mouse from 3pm through to the early hours of the morning.
We can also expect to see a fantastic range of supporting artists and praise the organisers for the wide range of performers they have involved across the weekend.
There are some final resale tickets still available for both Friday and Saturday, so if you’ve got the itch to get down to funky town this weekend, we suggest securing these quickly!
