A Festival Of Street Food And Reggae Vibes Is Coming To Peckham

Rye I oughta…

This year’s London festival calendar is shaping up nicely. With Arcadia officially kicking off the season last weekend, Jam on Rye is one of the newcomers to the city’s lineup this year.

A one-day party in Peckham Rye Park this coming bank holiday Monday, this sweet new fest has been curated by the street food connoisseurs at KERB, who for the first time will be pairing sweet beats with their cheap eats – and tickets are on sale now.


There’ll be three stages of reggae, afrobeat and new wave jazz, featuring David Rodigan, Horace Andy (Live), Mungo’s HiFi, Nubiyan Twist, Theon Cross and Soothsayers; plus performances curated by Peckham Levels.

Manning the grills, it’ll be a culinary contest between such street food legends as White Men Can’t Jerk, Only Jerkin’, BBQ Dreamz, Indian Street Kitchen, The Grilling Greek, Wandercrust, Bokit’la, Club Mexicana, Baggio Burger, Breddos Tacos, Nonna’s Gelato and South East Cakery.

Best to turn up hungry, then. You’ll be spoilt for choice: see you on the Rye.

It all goes off on Monday, May 28, 11am – 10pm. Tickets are £30 from Fever.
