Exciting, dynamic, eclectic and innovative – all words that describe today’s Rivington Street Festival. This will be the ultimate street party played out in one day-long event. It’s spread out across two stages and 10 individual venues all housing their own unique music and arts programmes along the length and breadth of Rivington Street.
The festival gives an opportunity for lesser known artists a chance to strut their stuff alongside the better known performers, and the line-up is comprised mainly of local unsigned musicians and DJs. Examples of the day’s talent include the leader of reggae resurgence Reggae Roast, experimental collective The Alternative Dubstep Orchestra (the name says it all), energetic beatboxer Bass 6, DJs like the fun-loving music-making team Livin Proof and countless more artists across a vast mix of genres.
It’s not just music on show though. Spoken word group, Remedy, will be complementing the music with their own performances, and the creative market ‘Togethertheycome’ will provide a wealth of artisan products, including fashion, jewellery and art prints.
Entrance to this (free) event is first-come-first-served, so if you’d like a day of fantastic music hosted along the lively and diverse Rivington Street, make sure you get in quick! (Words: Conori Bell-Bhuiyan)
