Following three successful years, and with a rep to contend with, STREETFEST is back this weekend with a one-day urban powered extravaganza! Purveyors and supporters of urban culture in the UK, Streetfest uniquely combines a kaleidoscope of interactive entertainment through music, live performance art, film, fashion and sports all under one roof.
The event will see a whole host of artists in attendance with a collection of over 20 taking part in live demos, battles and screenings throughout the day, presenting their creative vision and style. Blam, probably best known for his Oscar the Grouch character in Shoreditch (council have cleaned up efficiently!), has contributed to projects with The Royal Albert Hall. Also sharing walls, canvases and digital space will be Andy Council, Candy Flo, Elfin, Jess Douglas, Richt, Sainty and 45RPM.
On the main stage Secret Wars, the worlds premier live art battle will be stating the rules and setting the clock; two teams, 90mins, black paint on white walls, no sketching, an invisible middle line with artists either side - overseen by judges and the audience and using a decibel reader!
Alsong the live art they will be featuring some of the UK’s top collectives including; music, film, Dance plus, in-line skate, BMX, Fixed Gear and skateboard demonstrations plus their very own street market. As always this is not an event to be missed.
The full lineup of artists and all the other planned events can be seen over on the Streetfest website and tickets are £10 from Ticketweb and are on sale now.
