They will play live on the first floor of the Bussey Building on Saturday evening.
Peckham party guys Rigid Disco do their thing and Open Access Zone drop by from up the road in New Cross.
From Subtractive synthesis principles to live electronic performance fundamentals, CDR Knowledge will be offering PRMF attendee’s inspiration and insights into the world of music production, performance and culture on Friday May 13th.

Friends Of Ours comment: "We're so excited about bringing some of our favourite artists to Peckham to play alongside friends that make the local scene what it is. From the workshops we've got planned on the Friday, all-day dancing on the Saturday and the slightly more chilled plans for Sunday it's going to be a really fun weekend."
