Urban festival revellers transform Shoreditch car park
A bland concrete space was transformed into an urban oasis on Sunday as street artists, athletes and musicians came together for Streetfest.
Rapper Devlin headlined the one-day Hearn Street festival, following in the footsteps of previous headliners Professor Green and Maverick Sabre.
Boasting the ‘biggest vocabulary in grime’, 23-year-old Devlin was joined by female rapper Lady Lesshur, and RnB Hip Hop girls Work It.
The day kicked off with street poets performaning and artists adorning the walls with a variety of aerosol illustrations and intricate stencilled designs whilst spectators looked on.
BMX stunt riders and skateboarders wowed crowds round the half pipe with their aerial acrobatics.
