Taking place on 26 May, the event will host more than 40 street food and drink traders, a craft beer fair, creatives market, workshops and panel talks. The six daytime stages at Brockwell Park will host a lineup of genres including drum & bass, techno, hip hop, and grime. Artists include Ghetts, D Double E, Flowdan, Shy FX and Fabio & Grooverider and The Outlook Orchestra.
NVS Group founder and MD Noah Ball said, “Clubs are a vital part of this city’s vibrant music scene and we wanted to create a festival where music lovers can enjoy music outdoors in the summer sun, while placing equal focus on the city’s treasured club spaces. Project 6 is about community, supporting venues, artists, labels, collectives and bringing people together celebrating the music we love.”
The nightime sessions include Fabric hosting a three-room takeover each curated by Chanel Tres, Hudson Mohawke and Rustie. Village Underground will host a jungle night, while drum and bass DJ Lenzman’s label, The North Quarter hosts a session at Phonox. DJ Calibre heads to Venue MOT, while Flexout takes over the Steel Yard with Fabio & Grooverider, Charli Brix, QZB, Amoss and others.
