Festival2Funky Virtual 2020 - Highlights

Festival2Funky Virtual 2020 - Highlights

Now in its seventh year, Festival2Funky our annual celebration of Black music and arts, went Virtual.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, we were unable to run our Festival2Funky as we normally would, therefore we decided to stream this online. 

The weekend was a success and saw many artists, dj's, dancers, artists and industry professionals taking part. Not to mention the vast number of people who watched, danced and sang along all from the comfort of there own homes. 

This is the first time we have delivered a festival in this way and although we had a few technical issues, we learnt allot from the experience and enjoyed hearing your feedback and comments. 

You can now check out the festival highlights through the following links:
