After the success of last year’s event, Borderless is returning for a second-year run at the Battersea Arts Centre.

Covering a wide range of global sounds, including afrobeat, jazz, R&B, funk and electronic, the festival will feature performances from Fatima & The Eglo Live Band, Soweto Kinch, Kate Simko, London Electronic Orchestra, Jodie Abacus, Trim and more in a series of events that will run throughout May.

The festival told us: “This second series of Borderless upholds and encourages diversity through a lineup of killer artists from various disciplines and sounds that have been exciting us the last 6 months. We can’t wait to be back in the Council Chamber room, rarely will we get the chance to see such high calibre acts in such an intimate setting.”

We asked the guys over at the festival to put together a playlist featuring songs from those performing to get ready. You can buy tickets here.
