Rescheduled from 18.02.2022. All tickets for the previous date remain valid.

London-based seven-piece Cable Street Collective spent 2021 writing and recording new material, before a Summer jam-packed with festivals.

Their sound mixes African-influenced guitars and beats with soulful female vocals, socially conscious lyrics and western melodies, creating an idiosyncratic alt-pop sound that’s all their own. Their sets are guaranteed to get everyone to their feet.

Recent releases showcase the direction of the new album – Latest release, Speaking in Tongues, features friend of the band Gregg Kofi Brown of the legendary Afro-rock group Osibisa.

Cable Street Collective initially broke through onto the festival circuit with the release of their first EP, The Best of Times, in 2014, and have since built up a stellar reputation as a live band. Their latest recordings are songs that have been road-tested extensively, with back-to-back summers tearing up the likes of Boomtown, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi), as well as those mentioned below.

In 2019, building on the critical hype and radio play (on the likes of BBC Radio 6Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio, among others) generated by their second EP, they toured extensively – playing at Glastonbury, and Shambala as well as a whole host of smaller festivals and venues up and down the country.

Their sound mixes African-influenced guitars and beats with soulful female vocals, socially conscious lyrics and western melodies, creating an idiosyncratic alt-pop sound that’s all their own. Their sets are guaranteed to get everyone to their feet.

Support from local multi-talented, multi-lingual, multi-instrumentalist Ffredi Blino.
