Afrika Bambaataa, Norman Jay, Mr Scruff and DJ Yoda will also play at the event on 13-15 May

The full line-up has now been announced for the very first Soundcrash Funk & Soul Weekender, which takes place at Pontins holiday camp, in Camber Sands, East Sussex on 13-15 May. It's brought to you, as the name subtly hints, by Soundcrash, who've been successfully promoting funk and hip-hop parties in London for over 10 years.

Heading the bill is soul, jazz and funk legend Roy Ayers, who'll be playing live, as will Tru Thoughts' purveyors of all things downtempo and funkified Quantic, the nine-piece Gentlemen's Dub Club, live hip-hop crew The Mouse Outfit and the Renegade Brass Band.

DJ-wise, attendees will be able to catch sets from hip-hop and electro pioneer Afrika Bambaataa, national treasures Norman Jay and Mr Scruff, Radio 6 Music's in-house funkateer Craig Charles, Ninja Tune hero DJ Vadim, Afrobeat specialist Tony Allen, and Latin jazz guru Snowboy. Oh, and cut-n-paste maestro and turntablist DJ Yoda, AKA iDJ's very own hip-hop correspondent back in the day!

As well as the big names above, there are way too many more underground/up-and-coming artists and DJs to list here, so for the full line-up - or to buy tickets, which can be yours for as little as £129pp including chalet accommodation - hit up the weekender website.

Below, you can see the promo video from a couple of months back (note the video pre-dates the final line-up that was announced today).
