The first instalment of the Cross The Tracks lineup includes Sampa The Great who melts R&B, hip hop and Afro into her own unique form of jazz-funk, as well as the one and only Roy Ayers, plus electronic funk, soul artist Romare. Continuing into its third year, the festival returns to deliver an unrivalled festival experience in a gorgeous British setting with food traders, a craft beer market, a creative market and workshops.
This year’s headliners are Texan Thai-funk trio Khruangbin, soul, funk and dub connoisseur Norman Jay MBE and British-Irish-Bangladeshi singer-songwriter Joy Crookes. Across its six stages American Patrice Rushen who brought a new sense of sophistication to disco in the eighties will perform, joined by American rapper and soul star Mereba and the iconic gravelly tones of Macy Gray whose ‘I Try’ remains a stone-cold classic.
The festival takes place on Sunday 5th June, 2022 at Brockwell Park, London.
