Afrobeat comes to Hylands Park

London Afrobeat Collective bring the hypnotic grooves, pounding rhythms and soaring melodies to the main stage this July. Their take on Fela's blueprint remains traditional but includes modern injections of raw funk, latin and rock, all glued together by bold brass and dancefloor sweat. And not only were they personally invited by Michael Eavis to open the Glastonbury World Jazz Stage, but have played alongside Bombay Bicycle Club for main stage performances at Bestival, Reading and Latitude.
