Lianne La Havas has been revealed as the special guest headliner for one-day jazz, funk and soul festival Cross The Tracks this September. The charismatic soul singer (whose eponymous 2020 album made our Top 20 Albums of last year) heads the bill in place of Khruangbin who could no longer make the rescheduled event. 

Joining La Havas in the second wave of artists announced are Sons Of Kemet, led by Shabaka Hutchings, Sasha Keable, SEED Ensemble, and Kofi Stone. They'll be heading to London's Brockwell Park alongside The Cinematic Orchestra, Jordan Rakei, Sister Sledge, Nubya Garcia, Gilles Peterson, Greentea Peng, and more, all of which were revealed in the initial lineup. 

The festival whose 2020 edition was disrupted by the pandemic looks to establish itself as London's leading event for worldwide sounds, with a 2021 lineup that surpasses it's predecessor. 

And the proof is in the pudding: there's only 10% of tickets remaining for the day festival, so get on it. Check out the full lineup and announcement below:
