Somewhere you should go… East in East: Euro 2012, Rich Mix

Fresh off a wonderful weekend of celebrations to honour our beloved Queen comes the next major event to put our loyalties to GB to the test – Euro 2012.  But with most sporting events, there’s no harm in showing love to another worthy team (cough, Spain) – while this particular fest is opting to pay homage to our comrades from the Eastern Bloc with 20 days and nights of live music, exhibitions, films and spoken-word, brought to you by the best Eastern European artists and musicians based in the capital.   There’s plenty of football of course, will all the matches being screened live starting with Poland v Greece on June 8th – but whatever the outcome, it’ll be worth sticking around after each game to check out acts like the  folksy Csergo Band & Monooka (June 8th),  party starters Stephunk T (pictured) & Charlotte Michelle (June 9th), mesmerising singer-songwriter Tanja Tzarkovska (June 12th) and the funky Radio Gagarin Crew (June 15th). Oh, and did we mention all these Eurocentric festivities were  FREE? One for the diary we think…

East in East runs until July 1st. For more info, visit www.richmix.org.uk/whats-on/festival/euro-2012-festival
