ABOUT:

An unprecedented celebration of the African roots in music and culture, the acclaimed Back2Black festival travels from Rio de Janeiro to London this summer with a heavy mix of funk, reggae, dub, hip hop, samba, and blues.

Featuring three stages of live music and an eclectic line-up of more than twenty Brazilian, UK and international artists, including host Gilberto Gil, plus Macy Gray, Roots Manuva, Luiz Melodia, Arnaldo Antunes, Edgard Scandurra, Criolo, Emicida, Mart'nalia, Marcelo D2 and many more, the London festival will be held at Old Billingsgate Market in East London, transformed for the occasion by Brazilian visual artists.
