After a storming debut in recent years, Funk The Format Festival will be taking over Hove Park again with another jaw-dropping lineup. This year, over 18s are promised an even bigger and better experience. Team FTF have been working hard to sign up top talent to make this year’s festival the best yet.
Previous year’s saw none other than Goldie and The Heritage Orchestra Ensemble headline this celebration of soul, hip-hop, funk, disco, reggae, jungle and jazz. The drum’n’bass legend performed cuts from his album ‘The Journey Man’ with incredible support from vocalists Natalie Duncan and Terri Walker.
Modern soul power house, Alice Russell was also snagged to continue the stellar lineup, and she was joined by many top acts, including Norman Jay MBE. The King Tafari Love Music Crew provided good feelings via their own brand of roots reggae and ska, and Rodney P and Skitz raised the roof in the Tropicana tent.
The festival crew are working hard to make the Funk The Format as accessible as they can – this year wheelchair users and deaf festival goers will have a great view from the raised disability viewing platform.
The FTF team have also made sure anyone who gets the munchies will be well catered for – with a selection of Indian, Mexican, Italian, and English food, with plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. This festival is sure to become a favourite, so make sure you come along and be part of its roots.
