NEWS: Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul Festival announces Phase 2 line-up

When: 12th – 14th July 2024

Where: Moseley Park and Pool, Moseley, Birmingham, England

Back at the beginning of December, the Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul Festival announced the first wave of acts to appear at the 2024 event, including Sunday night’s headliners Kool & the Gang.

This highly celebrated event, which is returning for its 15th annual edition, has now revealed details of Phase 2 of this year’s line-up.

Joining Kool & the Gang at the top of the bill will be no less than the legendary British electronic music duo, Leftfield; the revered London producer, composer and drummer Yussef Dayes; and The Blackbyrds, the longstanding and hugely successful American rhythm and blues and jazz-funk fusion group.

Other acts who will be heading to the delightful surroundings of Moseley Park and Pool come the second weekend of July will include Ryan Hope (one third of Gabriels), multi-instrumentalist corto.alto, Jorja Smith labelmates Bricknasty, Canadian hip hop collective Super Duty Tough Work, London-based soul ensemble Wonder 45, and Luke Una, plus leading West Midlanders Leftfoot (hosting their own stage), Neone The Wonderer, The Atlantic Players, Ella More, Isla Wolfe, and Alex Polack.

John Fell, Mostly Jazz’s Festival Manager, said: “With one of the most influential electronic acts, Leftfield, opening on Friday, the BRIT nominated Yussef Dayes with us on Saturday, with the legendary R&B/funk pioneers Kool and The Gang closing on Sunday, we have one of the most varied Mostly Jazz line-ups so far.

“And we still have a couple of special guests to announce yet – so keep an eye out for news on those soon.”
