A Brave New World is London’s boldest and most cutting-edge new world music festival showcasing both emerging and established artists from all four corners of the globe and bringing together rising stars and legends for one big party on 22 June at the Roundhouse.

Originators of Afrobeat and pioneers of the genre Fela Kuti’s original band Africa 70 will come together for an exclusive reunion; founding members Tony Allen, Dele Sosimi, Bukky Leo and Femi Elias, will deliver a masterclass in Afrobeat rhythms and percussion. The legacy continues, as rhythm runs strong in the Kuti DNA and the mighty Seun Kuti & the Egypt 80, who will perform their latest album Black Times nominated for a Grammy to the Roundhouse.

Joining them on the line-up is Palestinian band 47 Soul, renowned for inventing their own genre Shamstep which fuses hip-hop, electro and Middle Eastern rhythms with lyrics in both Arabic and English, along with London-based Hejira who will captivate audiences with their articulate lyrics and soulful arrangements.

In a complete takeover of one of the capital’s most legendary music venues, the one-day festival will see the Roundhouse come to life with music on multiple stages, both inside and out and on all levels.

From banging DJ sets on the terrace to a basement art exhibition run by British-based independent record label Soundway Records showcasing their incredible collection of album artwork from African, Caribbean, Latin and Asian artists spanning over five decades, to mouth-watering food pop-ups and craft beer stalls, it will be a cultural party you won’t forget anytime soon.
