Each year we are diversifying the acts and extend our reach to make sure that all genres of music of black origin have a place at Black Music Festival. We want to continue to engage with and appeal to a wider audience to make the Bank Holiday weekend celebrations as inclusive as possible. We can’t wait to see it all come together.”
