In a true demonstration to the world that ‘London is open’, Africa Express: The Circus, will see musical legends, emerging artists, vocalists, DJs and producers from across Africa, the West, and indeed Waltham Forest coming together for a one-off show. On 29 March, artists including Batida, Damon Albarn, Django Django, Ellie Rowsell (Wolf Alice), and Joan As Police Woman will collaborate in a live musical performance in a big top circus tent on Wanstead Flats, Leytonstone, where Africa Express co-founder, Damon Albarn grew up. Waltham Forest are working to ensure that local residents of this year’s London Borough of Culture have access to priority tickets.
