Combining a true love for all things funk & soul orientated, The Funk & Soul Weekender returns 12-14th May 2016 at Camber Sands Holiday Camp (East Sussex, England) with its roots firmly placed in big brass sounds, hip-hop beats and future soul; mixing tropical, afro beat and world performances with disco, the right kind of house and all things in between. 2017 promises to be the ideal weekend for soul lovers, blending good times with unmissable talent across 3 days.

Headlining is funk & soul great George Clinton, who’ll perform his electric live show with 16-piece Parliament Funkadelic in tow. Joining him are New Orleans’ Hot 8 Brass Band, hip-hop royalty The Sugarhill Gang, Good Times ambassador Norman Jay MBE, Crazy P Soundsystem, Mr. Scruff, Flamingods, Taylor McFerrin, United Vibrations, Nubiyan Twist, Omar, Akua Naru and Jordan Rakei.

Not only are The Funk & Soul Weekender developing the musical and festival experience, they are also proudly working alongside Mind, Lovespecs and Support Act in a bid push their feel good values as far as possible, creating more awareness and opportunities for the projects which need it most.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
