We would like to share with you the vision and ambition for this major two-day live music festival in Southwark.
We want to engage local people in as many aspects of creating the event as possible. This is a festival that is to be designed by the community, for the community.
As a member of the Southwark community, we want you to be involved.
The launch event will give you an opportunity to find out all about the plans and tell us what you think - including the premiere of a little film that we've been working on.
We want to get in the party mood so refreshments will be provided and we will be treated to performances from local artist Infecta and DJ Sasha Marley.
The proposal has already gained a groundswell of support from many local community groups as well as music icons with a connection to the Borough.
‘As part of our bid for the LBOC we are looking at opportunities to celebrate the huge diversity of talent across Southwark. We know Southwark has a huge appetite for music and many talented musicians and international artists. We are excited by events that the whole community can enjoy that showcases some of our local talent and we look forward to working with "This Side Up" festival to see how we can bring it to Southwark.’
Cllr Johnson Situ, Cabinet Member for Business, Culture and Social Regeneration.
