At London's Alexandra Palace...

Kamasi Washington will headline Milestones Festival this summer.

The event is presented by Ronnie Scott's, the central London jazz club that turned 60 last year.

The one day festival takes place on July 26th, and will welcome Kamasi Washington as headliner.

The saxophone colossus has confirmed that his set will be his only UK performance in 2020, and it will undoubtedly be a highlight.

Other new additions include S.E.E.D. Ensemble, Reuben James, and Mark Mavuma, while DJs include Femi Koleoso (Ezra Collective), Mike Vitti, and Women in Jazz.

Previous announcements include British jazz legend Courtney Pine, Soul II Soul guru Jazzie B, and Marcus Miller.

Tickets are on sale now.

Milestones Festival takes place on July 26th.
