Brixton Jamm is back. Simple as that. From July 19th, one of the capital’s most popular spots will be fully open for endless hours of unrestricted fun. Think anything from cutting-edge live music to a camp night out, bottomless brunch, or boozy game shows. Along the way, there will be sets from Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, Prosumer, The 2 Bears, Session Victim, DJ Luck & MC Neat, Craig Charles, Melvo Baptiste, Jungle Cakes, and much more are all lined up between now and the end of summer.
The reopening week will be huge. A year after converting its outdoor spaces into the fantastic Brixton Courtyard and leading the industry with its Socially Distanced Socials, the shackles are finally off. Every day from 6 pm to 2 am, the music will flow from the cutting edge sound system out on to packed dance floors both inside and out. This much anticipated new chapter opens on Monday 19th July with a Summer of Love featuring DJs spinning all things funk, soul, house, disco, and more. Starting in the courtyard before moving into the club, there will also be resident Caribbean connoisseurs Only Jerkin’ serving their special fried chicken and vegan alternatives with cocktail jugs, beer buckets, Prosecco, and more, all on offer.
Of course, Brixton Jamm is also famous for leading the way when it comes to musical brunches and has a whole new line-up of mouthwatering events this summer. Highlights include the new Studio 54 Bottomless Brunch with the Some Voices Choir performing a live and unique 70’s disco set inspired by New York’s iconic club for stars and stargazers. This glittery event will involve 75 minutes of bottomless Prosecco, food from the incredible Only Jerkin’ and a disco DJ set on the beach whilst you dine.
Meanwhile, the launch of the UKG Mega Bucket Bottomless Brunch includes a bucket of Only Jerkin’s ‘Triple-Dipped Fried Chicken’ wings with seasoned fries plus acts on rotation such as DJ Luck & MC Neat and So Solid’s Twin MCs. A Carnival Brunch with bottomless rum punch will take place on the August weekend where Notting Hill Carnival normally falls and a new I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! themed Drag Brunch hosted by That’s Drag will include puppets, X-rated content and bush tucker trials. The music-driven Brunch on the Beach & Brunch in the Courtyard play out across the stunning outdoor spaces with outlandish fun, games & prizes hosted by festival crew House of Dinosaur. A full hip-hop experience with the Hip Hop LDN Brunch brings energetic hosts and a plethora of entertainment including temporary Sharpie tattoo artists, Magic Circle certified Magicians, Dancers and beatboxers for a fully immersive party.
Tuesday 20th July is Garage, Wings & Tings with the legends that are DJ Luck & MC Neat and plenty of rum punch and BBQ wings to keep you fueled throughout the night. Wednesday 21st, and Friday 23rd July, is The Abba vs Fleetwood Mac Disco Party with resident DJs serving up the ultimate tribute party for fans of these two pop icons. Thursday 22nd July is Brixton Jamm Reopening Week Social with residents shining across the Courtyard, Beach and Club!. Saturday 24th July marks the return of Shut The Front Door with Harrison BDP, Scottish party, label, and DJ collective Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, high energy disco queen Sophie Lloyd, and up and comer Ariane V serving up cutting edge electronic sounds from house to techno, bass to garage. All this will be served up on the sun-trap terrace with cocktails and street food before things move indoors as the night progresses.
After that mega-opening week comes a full program of carefully curated events including Heatwave Brixton with the likes of The 2 Bears and Route 94, Shut The Front Door with Prosumer and Session Victim, Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club, Kitsuné, The Big Disco with Friendly Fires, Jungle Cakes with Benny Page, Ed Solo, Deekline and Ray Keith and much more.
Once a month throughout summer, the much loved Drag Bingo will be back to serve up the most hilarious and unique experience right in the heart of Brixton with the best fried chicken in town from Only Jerkin’. On separate monthly dates, House of Dinosaur: Bangers vs Clangers Quiz will offer the Champions League of music-related quizzery with tournaments, mashups and megamixes.
The venue’s weekly foodie events and shindigs will continue with Bottomless Wings & Fries every Monday and Anti-Tuesday Social Club on Tuesdays where Brixton Jamm will be knocking 50% off your food and drink bills! Wednesdays offer an unpretentious, no-fuss opportunity to drop your favourite tracks at Open Decks Social, Thursdays see the launch of the brand new Thursday Jazz Club on 29th July with special guest DJs joining the dots between UK Jazz, Neo-Soul and Future Beats. Every Friday Jamm Hot will return with straight-up Friday Vibes, happy hours, and nice beats.
