As if Hackney isn’t bursting at the seams with summer festivals, here comes another one. Not just your garden variety fan fest of music, but one with a different edge. Last year there was a vision, this year The Little London Fields Festival is born! a new independent, FREE Music and Arts Festival showcasing an array of fresh talents including an eclectic, alternative mix of Contemporary Art, cutting edge fashion design and dynamic new music from some of the best up and coming talent around.
And if that’s not enough, the festival will be complimented by hand picked local market food stalls, delicious ales and cocktails to complement the summer festival vibe. Little London Fields Festival is an accessible platform for some of the most talented artists whether it be music, fashion or the arts to play to a wider captive audience that otherwise would still be playing to a packed out pub, the festival is the gap between your packed out pub gig and a medium sized expensively ticketed festival, creating for London the magic of bigger Festival in a free and informal boutique cozy sized package.
London Fields is truly a Mecca of the best London has to offer. Nearby Broadway Market is lined with all manner of kooky shops, vintage stalls and amazing fresh food, the place is crammed with people from all walks of life who make the area so very special to all who come.
This well loved park unites the whole area and offers a shared space for all, playing host to everyone and everything from the local area as well as a few off-duty pop stars including the likes of Florence from Florence And The Machine, Lilly Allen, Pixie Geldof and Kate Moss who all come to take time out in the park.
The ethos of the festival is to create something special and unique for everyone hat reflects this beautiful local space and bring smiles all round. The festival will stage some of the best up coming bands and artists around such as Brighton band de jour Mirrors who will be treating the crowd to some of their rich, ripe and down right dirty Snyth-pop.
There will also be performances from the mesmerizing Robot Disaster and Don’t Wait Animate from up coming label Gash and with an extra special headliner to be announced shortly the day is set to kick off proceedings nicely.
Alongside all this Carhartt will be presenting a disco tent to shake your booty down to the likes to Cut n Shut Disco, Terri Walker, S.E.F and much much more. More line up to be announced shortly.
