UK: Curated in collaboration between The Columbo Group and NVS Group, Sunfall is a celebration of underground music set to take place in London on August 12.

Live music will remain central to the program, with the festival featuring a UK exclusive performance from legendary Chicago producer Larry Heard (aka Mr Fingers), in his first London show in 20 years.

“Larry’s performance at Dimensions last year is still being talked about, so we’re over the moon to have him locked for his first UK live performance in over 20 years,” said festival programmer Noah Ball. “His live show is something else. We also can’t wait for a Theo Parrish extended set, on a great sound system and Floating Points solo live show, which is directed more at the dance floor than the previous live set up.”

Additional names announced for Sunfall thus far are: Antal, Beautiful Swimmers, Ben Ufo, The Black Madonna, Derrick May, Floating Points (Live), Gilles Peterson, Haai, Helena Hauff, Jackmaster, Jay Electronica, Madlib, Moses Boyd, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Move D, Mafalda, Palms Trax, Peggy Gou, Princess Nokia, Romare (Live), Roy Ayers (Live), Shanti Celeste, and Theo Parrish.

Andy Peyton of The Columbo Group added: “After the success of last year, we can’t wait to go back to Brockwell Park with an incredible line-up. We’re proud that the work we did to create great sound in a central London festival paid off, and are committed to surpass those levels again.”
