It’s another thumbs-up for SE15.

Peckham continues its transformation into a major music mecca with the first ever Peckham Rye Music Festival, a “celebration of the local music scene,” which currently boasts record stores Yam Records and Rye Wax, the Peckham Independent Label Fair, and more.

Taking place May 13-15, eight of the area’s now practically-famous venues are on board, with Bussey Building/The CLF Art Cafe and Canavan’s Peckham Pool Club (aka a classic Peckham night out) already announced.

The line-up represents UK artists including Benji B, Wbeeza, Mickey Pearce, Leif, Bass Clef and West Norwood Cassette Library, with non-UK offerings from Kassem Mosse and Mix Mup, who will perform as MM/KM. There will also be workshops and seminars hosted by the CDR crew.

“The festival will bring together the artists, labels and record shops that have created a fresh and exciting vibe in our corner of london as well as headline acts from across the globe. It is a truly independent festival, run by a core-team of friends, across peckham’s independent venues,” reads the website.

Tickets are available to buy from their website.

Last year, plans to develop luxury flats overlooking the Bussey Building and Rye Wax venues were put on hold following a public backlash.
