For those who love music but hate camping, these multi-venue urban festivals showcase music and art without the mud and creepy-crawlies
In dark times, disco offers a seductive, defiant escapism. In its second year, this festival will explore that wider cultural resonance in film screenings and Q&As, before partying late in venues around Brixton’s Windrush Square, which will be turned into an open-air roller disco. Joey Negro, Horse Meat Disco and dance music archivists Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton are on the bill, which also includes sets from Merseyside’s king of the edit, Greg Wilson, Evelyn “Champagne” King and a four-hour, back-to-back from the evergreen Francois Kervorkian and Lucky Cloud’s Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy.
