The Jazz Café unveils its first music festival – and here's how to get tickets



The event takes place at Burgess Park in Camberwell.

Jazz fans, it's time to get into the groove. London's The Jazz Café has announced its first festival. Jazz Café Festival takes place on 15 September at Burgess Park, Camberwell. The line-up includes Nils Frahm, Earl Sweatshirt, Eliza and Buena Vista All Stars. 

Jazz Café Festival will showcase sounds across R&B, soul, house and, of course, jazz. The event takes place across four stages, and runs from the day to night. 

Berlin-based composer Nils Frahm will headline. The German musician is known for his blend of classical and electronic music to create intimate and powerful soundscapes, often incorporating elements like upright pianos, synthesizers, and drum machines alongside his grand piano. Nils releases his latest album "Day" on 1 March.

Rapper Earl Sweatshirt emerged at 16 with the critically acclaimed mixtape "Earl," bringing a dark and honest voice to hip-hop. Often delving into themes of alienation, depression, and self-discovery, his raps are as poetic as they are raw. Earl Sweatshirt's sound has evolved over time, with collaborations with producer The Alchemist (who is also performing) adding a smooth, jazzy feel to his later work. 

Formed in 1996, the Buena Vista All Stars were a revival project that brought together legendary Cuban musicians. Led by American guitarist Ry Cooder, their self-titled 1997 album became a global hit, sparking renewed interest in Cuban music. The accompanying documentary by Wim Wenders further solidified their fame. Though the original group disbanded in 2015, their legacy lives on.

Catch Habibi Funk, which is Berlin-based but plays music from the Arab world. The line-up also includes funk star Moonchild Sanelly, Syrian folk musician Omar Souleyman, and Japanese house artist Soichi Terada. Plus, Baby Rose, BXKS, Cherise, Crazy P Soundsystem, Gilles Peterson, Minna, Qendresa and Rapsody.

During the Jazz Café Festival, guests will be able to explore a tropical plant room, dine out at food trucks and sip on crafted cocktails. Look out for the secret stage, too – details have not yet been announced. 

If you can't wait, check out the Jazz Café's latest line-up. The Camden venue is welcoming Jazz Jamaica on 16 March, Bien on 18 March, Black Milk on 20 March, DJ Muggs on 21 March, Ella Eyre on 22 March, Rodrigo Alarcon on 24 March, Feux on 26 March and Zoe Kypri on 31 March.
