The fifth Brixton Come Together community festival takes place over the weekend of 30 September to 2 October.

Organisers plan a programme of live music, DJs, workshops, talks, films, , carnival-style events and Latin America street food from Comida Fest.

Community stalls will highlight local issues and campaigns, particularly gentrification.

Venues across Brixton will host events, including the Hootananny on Friday 30 September in association with Movimientos with a line-up of international live acts and DJs headed by cumbia and Catalan rumba from Joan Garriga (La Troba Kung-Fú) and Madjid Fahem (from Manu Chao’s La Ventura band). Also flying in from Catalonia will be Sandunguera, with authentic street rumbas. To connect with the local scene, there will be guests and DJs from the Come Together family. Free before 10pm; £5 after; £2 membership fee after 11pm. 9pm to 3am.

Saturday 1 October will see the festival take over Windrush Square from noon to 8pm.

On Sunday 2 October Come Together moves to Jamm with an after party at Club 414.
