Event Details

As part of this year’s festival, Brockley Max will be hosting a FREE PARTY AT LEWISHAM’S LEGENDARY FOX & FIRKIN ON SUNDAY 29TH MAY 2022 featuring a host of live acts and djs who have appeared at the festival over the years.

 

 Veteran blues/country singer CERI JAMES

Ceri has been playing and organising Brockley Max events for almost 20 years. Starting around 2004 at Moonbow Jakes cafe. He helped compile a CD of Brockley based artists/musicians in 2006 called Brockley Max Trax II 2006. Various other events have included a singer/songwriter night in 2016 and an event at the cafe on Hilly Fields during the pandemic.

 

Lewisham-based militant rock and roots reggae band, THE FOUR FATHERS

The Four Fathers have been proud to be involved in several Brockley Max events since forming in 2014, playing at ‘Art in the Park’ in 2015 and on the opening night in 2017, and organising two festival events in 2018 and 2019 at the Chandos and at Brockley Social Club. Lead singer Andy Worthington, who was involved in the earliest ‘Art in the Park’ events, and who also promoted his book ’The Battle of the Beanfield’ at an event in 2005, recalls how the creation of the festival was extraordinarily helpful in bringing Brockley’s artists and creative people together.

 

And also from Lewisham, ‘cosmic’ country band, THE TRUE BELIEVERS fronted by musical comedian Steve Gribbin and local legend Alice Renouf. The True Believers have been part of Brockley Max since we formed in 2016, and have played every year since. It’s such a great Festival celebrating the best of Brockley & Lewisham, a real good vibe to it. We especially enjoyed playing The Opening Night gigs in 2016, 2017 and 2018, including one where a torrential downpour made our gig into a Dangerous Sport!  We loved playing in the Front Garden last year, our answer to The Beatles on The Rooftop. There’s something about music played outdoors that is magical, and this did not disappoint. There was a great atmosphere, a beautiful sunny day & loads of people in our street, even a small child dancing! The very essence of Brockley Max!!

 

Local singer/songwriter PRVNA 

“Loved playing Brockley Max just before the pandemic happened, real good vibes – excited to be back this summer!”

And coming all the way from Memphis Tennessee for the party, energetic southern rapper, COLDWAY who last appeared at the festival in 2019.   My first time traveling internationally was to travel to London to perform at the Brockley Max Festival. I felt so welcomed by the community and it continues to be one of the best experiences I’ve had.

 

Felix’s Rock Choir (FRC) sprung from Felix’s School of Rock (FSOR) in 2007 – originally something for young rockers’ parents to do. They’ve performed over 100 songs at over 100 pubs, clubs, schools and special events doing mostly singalong friendly Rock, Pop & Soul. FRC has enjoyed appearing at Brockley Max many times.

 

The celebrations will be rounded off with funk tunes from  DJ mR tiDy, one of South London’s longest standing vinyl DJ’s who’s deejayed for Brockley Max festival numerous times over the years. 

 

With more acts to be announced, the BROCKLEY MAX 21ST BIRTHDAY PARTY will have something for everyone.  For updates please visit https://foxfirkin.com or check out the full programme at www.brockleymax.co.uk
