ABOUT THE VENUE:
The Chronic Love Foundation CLF Art Café, runs over 5 floors of Block A of The Bussey Building. A 120-year-old multi-level warehouse space (that the CLF helped name, save and are still known as), hosting leading events in music, theatre, dance, film, art, and more. From grass roots to cutting edge, Bestival to Secret Sundaze, The South London Soul Train to The Royal Court Theatre, Fred Wesley and The New J.B.s to Disclosure via MJ Cole, The Fatback Band, Nathaniel Ratliff & The Night Sweats - the list goes on and on and on...
Best of all, the venue is down to earth without pretence. From the smiling happy security at late night events, to the mirror-free ever evolving large yet intimate Interior, where different artists and promoters turn the venue into anything from an Alice In Wonderland Themed Forest to a spectacular 3D visually immersive space.
