This year’s award-winning line-up includes Michael Kiwanuka, nominated for two Brit Awards in 2020 and whose album was hailed as “one of the greatest of the decade” by The Guardian. The London singer-songwriter has established himself as one of the UK’s most gifted and unpredictable of artists with the release of his compelling and broadly acclaimed self-titled third album last year. Fans can expect a night of revelatory, triumphant sounds from Kiwanuka, perfect in the serene surrounding on a summer evening in the capital, making him a truly outstanding addition to this year’s line-up on 9th August.

This show was rescheduled from 11th August 2020.

With his acoustic sound and timelessly soulful voice, British singer/songwriter Michael Kiwanuka emerged to acclaim in 2011 combining folk, indie rock, and R&B with traditions borrowed from his Ugandan heritage. Drawing favourable comparisons to Curtis Mayfield, Terry Callier, and Van Morrison, Kiwanuka earned a Mercury Prize nomination for his debut album, 2012's Home Again, and won the BBC's Sound of 2012. He further cemented his reputation as a gifted and rootsy performer with his sophomore album, 2016's Love & Hate, which went gold, landing at number one in the UK.
