Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti once said ‘music is the weapon’: you’ll need armour to withstand the full sonic force of London Afrobeat Collective. This unstoppable band was personally invited to play at Glastonbury by Michael Eavis and they are renowned for their high-energy festival shows. They channel the spirit of Afrobeat with bass-heavy rhythms, raw funk and Latin beats guaranteed to make you move.
