Safe digging before disco time.
Back for its second instalment, London’s Sunfall music festival sees a heady lineup takeover Brockwell Park on the 12th of August during the day, including Larry Heard’s first UK performance in over 20 years, Madlib, Roy Ayers and more. The festival then spreads across the city for nine night sessions.

Sunfall is also bringing back its independent record fair, showcasing the best of the city’s local labels alongside its daytime event.
“We wanted to make sure the things that people loved about Sunfall in its first year returned in year two. The record fair is a project we want to nurture. It’s a reminder of why we’re doing the festival in the first place, to support the music we love” says festival co-founder Andy Peyton.
18 imprints are selling their wares – including VF favourites 22a, YAM Records and Church – alongside DJs providing tunes to fuel your digging, with vinyl dealer Nick The Record, Hesseltime selector, plus secret guests amongst those lined-up to play.
If the idea of toting your precious purchases around a festival sounds like a recipe for disaster, you’re not alone. Sunfall will be offering a vinyl delivery service, so you can have your records safely delivered to your doorstep rather than shattered in pieces of heartbreak on the dance floor during a bass-fuelled foot stomp.
Each label will have their own delivery options, with prices running roughly the cost of shipping vinyl via 1st class Royal Mail post. If you’re not able to attend, you can catch Peckham radio station Balamii streaming sets from the fair live.
