Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival 2021 move dates

Festival Crowd Header

Birmingham’s Mostly Jazz Funk and Soul Festival is back this August with a top-flight line-up of big names, classic artists and brand new regional talent

The festival has moved dates in working around the ever changing Covid roadmap, going from July to now across the weekend of Friday 20 and Sunday 22 August 2021.

Mostly Jazz Funk and Soul opens with a headline set from The Cinematic Orchestra who last headlined the event 10 years ago. They’re joined by Maribou State (DJ set), the Mercury Prize nominated jazz/ electronic/ psych/ trio The Comet Is Coming, and the equally lauded Nubya Garcia, whose debut album, Source, featured prominently in numerous end-of-year polls.

Day two finds 1970s British funk heroes Cymande, the crowd-pleasing Craig Charles, the always entertaining The Cuban Brothers, and the powerfully voiced Hannah Williams and The Affirmations taking to the stage. The festival concludes on Sunday in spectacular fashion with Mr Jukes and Barney The Artist (a new collaboration featuring Bombay Bicycle Club’s Jack Steadman), and Hot Chip’s unique DJ-meets-performance concept, Hot Chip Megamix. US R&B legend Jocelyn Brown and New York disco hitmakers Odyssey also appear.
