Streetfest returns on May 6th for another spring-time event celebrating all aspects of inner city alternative culture.
Epic works by featured graffiti artists, live music showcases and BMX/skater ramps will all make the heart of urban London beat as Streetfest continues for its fourth year.
Having grown since it started in 2008, Streetfest has brought creative art forms and expressive individuals together in one space to celebrate, interact and enjoy many of London’s innovative works from independent street wear companies, to live illustrations and breakdancing.
From the afternoon into the evening, the atmosphere remains positive and progressive, allowing revellers to exchange ideas or simply de-stress, in an environment deep in the belly of the capital city, but tucked away from corporate and traditional surroundings.
Partners such as Secret Wars and Urban Nerds add to the credibility of this London hangout — an event improving on activities and size, each time, while artists who have performed at Streetfest include Ghostpoet and Wretch 32. This year’s headliner is mighty East End MC Devlin, who’ll also be joined by Lady Leshurr and DJ Wookie amongst others.
The eclectic mix of hipsters, B-boys, students, east-London fashionistas, and everyone in between, adds to the ambiance of the event — a platform that throws a middle finger up to conformity, and promotes visionary unity.
