Temple Funk Collective brought the house down at Bestival 2014 – a New Orleans-style 8-piece brass band riot, taking their lead from the Louisiana legends and adding gypsy, jungle and hip hop.

While growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, Bukky Leo was spotted practicing his first saxophone by the great original afrobeat drummer Tony Allen. He was immediately ushered into Tony’s newly formed band “Mighty Iroko’s”. Bukky went on to play with the great Fela Kuti, where the seeds of Afrobeat were being sewn.

Then on LEVEL 2 – Let’s make it FUNKY! WELL FUNKY!! Rare Funk 45 super sharp shooters DJ SNOWBOY & PERRY LOUIS take aim and fire up the Dance Floor for another red hot, positive all night session in funk, soul, rare groove + More.
