Festival2Funky 2018 Call out to Artists and Volunteers

Now in its fifth year, Festival2Funky will be a fantastic celebration of Black music and arts, running from 21-27 May 2018.

This is an established 7 day festival, based at 2Funky Music Café in Leicester’s vibrant West End. 2Funky Arts is appealing to local MC’s, DJ’s, singers and musicians, to get in touch if they would like to take advantage of this platform, with £50 per performance available for selected artists. 2Funky Arts is also on the lookout for volunteers, to gain valuable experience through working on an exciting programme of events.

The festival will encompass Afrobeat, reggae, grime, gospel, jazz, soul, R&B, dub, jungle, UK Garage, bass and drum & bass. Exhilarating live performances and open mic sets, across these genres, will feature alongside masterclasses, graffiti workshops, DJ sets, urban comedy events, spoken word, after-parties and lots more!

A full schedule will be available in the run up to the festival, from www.2funkyarts.co.uk. To volunteer or perform as part of the festival, please contact Vijay Mistry at 2Funky Arts on [email protected].
