Hackney Colliery Band

Band on the Wall - main venue

As one of the very first of the new wave of brass bands to appear, Hackney Colliery Band have consistently pushed the boundaries of what we think of as a ‘brass band’.

Best-known in their early days for their unlikely covers, including Toto’s Africa and Blackstreet’s No Diggity, HCB have nevertheless always had original music at their very core, producing four albums of almost entirely newly-penned music since 2011.

With their latest single, FLOOD, the first single from forthcoming Collaborations: Volume Two album, HCB continue to surprise, producing a fiery vocal-led diatribe on the state of the world in 2022, as they make a welcome return to the festival and bring mjf2022 to an effervescent close.

“One of the greatest live bands that we have in this country,” BBC Radio 2
