The streets of Shoreditch will once again play host to the Rivington Street Festival on Sunday June 23 after its successful Jubilee celebration last year.
Bars, cafes, clubs, fashion boutiques and galleries along the street will throw open their doors to offer performances from the best local musicians, poets and comedians, art exhibitions and film screenings.
Two open air stages will also feature live music and the artisan market specialists TogetherTheyCome are hosting a selection of fashion, jewellery and original prints, while spoken word artists Remedy will capture the minds of the audience with their inspiring thoughts.
Among the many fascinating stories featuring at the festival is Chima Anya, a half Nigerian, half Romanian doctor who also completed a PhD in hip-hop and whose accent makes for an intriguing performance.
Other must-see acts include the energetic beatboxer Bass 6, rave-lovers Boglewaltz and one of the UK’s most in demand DJs Rock The Belles.
The all-encompassing family friendly festival starts at midday and the daytime programme finishes at 10pm.
The party will continue inside the lively bars of Shoreditch with performances from some of the best unsigned local acts.
