A celebration of all things Reggae is coming to Beckenham Park.
It started slightly later than we’ve grown accustomed to (not that you’d notice after the questionable weather) but festival season is well and truly underway in London. And, if you haven’t go any booked: 1. Why not? and 2. Let us turn your attention to City Splash 2021, an event celebrating the impact of Reggae on Britain.
City Splash takes place at Beckenham Park on September 12, and boasts a stacked lineup of over 40 artists across four stages. Guests will enjoy a genre-spanning lineup, from Dancehall to Grime to Dub to Jungle to Roots to Hip Hop, all with a common thread: a reggae influence.
Alongside the best in reggae sounds throughout the day, City Splash is set to host some of London’s top Caribbean street food vendors, in collaboration with London Jerk Fest. Munch down on jerk chicken, vegan ital stew, fried plantains and many more divine dishes. Plus, there’s plenty of rum, craft beer, stouts and spirits to wash down the grub and get you ready for some more dancing.
Talking of cutting shapes, you’ll be doing it aplenty to the star-studded lineup on show at City Splash. Legends of the game Barrington Levy, Lila Ike, Channel One, General Levy and more will pick up the microphones across four stages among the ancient woodland at the site.
City Splash Festival takes place from 12-9.30pm on September 12. Find it at Beckenham Place Park, BR3 5BS (Nearest stations are Beckenham Hill, Ravensbourne and Beckenham Junction).
