On August 5 itself, a line-up of artists will perform on the main stage in Windrush Square as well as at the usual soundsystems along Coldharbour Lane and Atlantic Road.
And in the evening, the Electric Brixton will host the official after-party, with live streaming from the athletics final and a countdown to midnight. "We'll be ringing in Jamaican independence day at the Brixton Electric", said Lee Jasper.
The street festival was first held in August 2006 to mark 25 years since the Brixton riots and to show the vibrant, positive side of Brixton to the world. It is very much a community-led event, founded by Blacker Dread, who owns the Blacker Dread record store on Coldharbour Lane, and Ros Griffiths of the Brixton Bizness Cafe.
"The Splash is important to Brixton because the notion of multiculturalism has been under constant attack of late, notably by the Prime Minister himself", said Lee Jasper. "We want to celebrate Brixton's hyperdiversity. This is the world in one place. The cultural assets which that brings can be a real strong driver for the local economy. The Brixton Splash vision is to support this."
