Featuring three stages of live music and an eclectic line-up of more than 20 Brazilian, UK and international artists, including host Gilberto Gil, the London festival is held at Old Billingsgate Market in East London, transformed for the occasion by Brazilian visual artist and director Bia Lessa.

The festival will also include talks, debates, exhibitions, drumming displays and workshops involving young musicians from East London and the Pracatum School from Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.
