Hackney Colliery Band


Saturday 22/06/24

Sunlight Stage

‘One of the greatest live bands that we have in this country’ (BBC Radio 2) hits the main stage for a powerful set of fun, accessible yet adventurous music. Bringing the party to the beach, this 9-piece juggernaut of brass, drums and electronics sounds like no brass band you’ve ever heard.


Since the release of their eponymous debut album in 2011, the East London collective have blown their way into the public consciousness with their genre-bending combination of brass, reeds, percussion and electronics, firmly establishing themselves as one of the most exciting live bands in the UK.


Hackney Colliery Band are also heading up the Opening Parade this year so come along to the East Point Pavilion at 11.30am on Saturday 22 June and MAKE SOME NOISE!
