After making its debut last year, City Splash is making a grand return to Brockwell Park, Brixton, this May, and they’ve announced Stonebwoy as the headliner. In 2021, the Ghanaian Nickelodeon & BET Winner and four-time Best Reggae/Dancehall Act in Africa made the UK his own when he took over three cities: London, Birmingham and Manchester, for a star-studded three-city leg of his Anloga Junction album tour.
A raft of names will be joining Stonebwoy on the bill for the 1-day festival, including Mr. Eazi, Barrington Levy, Protege, Kranium, Sister Nancy, Luciano, and more.
City Splash is a one-day festival bringing the hottest carnival vibes to South London with the biggest artists in reggae, dancehall, afrobeats and more. The festival aims to help celebrate the impact and importance of Caribbean and African music on British culture, according to the organizers.
“Reggae, Dancehall and Afrobeats influence on youth culture in London runs deep, the genre’s heartbeat rhythm and lyrics about love, redemption and life deeply affect fashions, lifestyles, friendships and unify strangers internationally. We’re hyped to be bringing it again to South London May 2022,” the organizers said in a statement.
“We’re heading across South London this year to the beautiful Brockwell Park in Brixton! With better access for everyone and more transport links than before, we think it’s perfect for the 2nd edition of City Splash. Due to the site change, we will be able to bring you more stages filled with International and local artists, plus extra traders and food vendors for the perfect event,” the statement added
The maiden edition was the talk of the Summer with many people saying it was one of the best new events to hit London in a long time. City Splash festival takes place Sunday (May 29) at Brockwell Park, Brixton. For tickets and more info, head here.
