Here’s to 2020
On Saturday 16 February this year, Walthamstow Jazz Festival 2019 brought together legendary and cutting edge talent, with Cream drummer Ginger Baker headlining with his Jazz Confusion outfit, afrobeat originator Tony Allen, as well as the effortlessly cool Django Django, free jazz pioneer Evan Parker, Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, and rising stars such as Emma-Jean Thackray, Binker Golding, Project Karnak and others.
The festival took place at the beautiful Grade II Listed Walthamstow Assembly Hall, a short walk from Walthamstow Central Station.
