Brixton's jazz, funk and soul feast will move to September 5th for its second edition.
After an inevitable year out, the jazz, funk and soul day-to-night extravaganza is set to return with a later 2021 comeback date.
Following a lot of discussion and advice taken around the pandemic, vaccine rollouts and rapid testing, the festival will now move to the late summer date of September 5th to ensure the event can go ahead in full resounding glory.
Celebrating music legends and exciting new talent alike, the festival’s first edition saw thousands of revellers pack South London’s Brockwell Park. Returning with its no-bad-vibes, no-bad-music and no-plastic ethos, the feel-good event of the year is sure to be a 2021 highlight.
With an incredible mix of acts across the breaking and heritage, 2019’s edition saw Chaka Khan, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, OSHUNN, The Blackbyrds, Etta Bond, Steam Down Orchestra and more taking to the stage, festival-goers can expect a similarly legendary line-up. A fully rounded experience, the incredible music programming will sit alongside 40 street-food traders, panel talks, workshops, a vintage fair, a wellness tent, an independent creative market and much more for the fusion-festival’s 2021 edition.
Music lovers won’t have long to wait for confirmation, with a line up announcement expected very soon.
Cross The Tracks will once again be providing an allocation of free tickets to NHS workers to say a heartfelt thanks for their brave and incredible efforts during this crisis and all year round work.

Jack Robinson, Cross The Tracks organiser comments: “We are delighted to announce Cross The Tracks’ return with our new September date. The last year has been an incredibly tough one for festivals and the wider events industry, not to mention the many difficulties and heartbreak individuals and our NHS has faced. We cannot think of a better way to celebrate as the world begins to reopen. Building on our plans from 2020 we have no doubt it’s going to be a very special show and we cannot wait to warmly and safely welcome you through our gates this Summer.”
