    LONDONS NUMBER ONE STREET CULTURE FESTIVAL IS BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND BRINGING YOU A HOT MIX OF LIVE INTERACTIVE ART, EXCITING NEW MUSIC TALENT,
    STREET RIPPING URBAN SPORTS AND TONS MORE!

    BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND SUNDAY 29TH MAY 2011

    SHOREDITCH
    EAST LONDON

    TICKET PRICE £10

    Following three successful years, and with a rep to contend with, STREETFEST is back 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.

    First up we see a collection of over 20 artists and designers taking part in live demos, battles and screenings throughout the day, present- ing their creative vision and style.

    We are proud to announce Inkie, globally respected as one of the most notorious graffiti writers in UK history to emerge out of the 80’s Bristol scene, will be painting alongside Remi Rough, who has been breaking boundaries for the past 24 years. He was recently invited to talk about the underground history of UK graffiti as part of the Tate’s Street Art exhibition and series.

    Transcending the traditional and somewhat idealised vision of a graffiti writer, 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. Trust us this takes crowd participation to new levels!

    Next up we have contributors Lovenskate, Bicycle Union and Kingdom hitting up the 32ft in-built ramp, where you can watch in awe as urban sports talent from the world’s of skate, in-line and bmx, flip and trick their way through all day competitions. Dance entertainment is provided by The Supreme ladies, who will be conducting a high-energy b-girl hip hop dance competition.

    The show doesn’t stop here! Streetfest’s alternative experience has a banging plethora of aural delights and we are excited to announce that The Nextmen will be headlining this year’s festival. This eclectic duo continue to be stalwarts of the UK music scene, consistently carving up shiny gems from London’s urban backdrop. We’re also featuring the heavy bass charms of the Urban Nerds (Rattus Rattus & Klose One), not shy of getting a party started, their unabated warehouse events and club nights have pushed boundaries and decibels to sell out events with their mash-up of dubstep, electro and grime.

    The one-man mixing machine Thristian bPm, currently holds residency at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival. Always on the hunt to discover new hip-hop sounds, he divides his time with sessions for Platform Magazine’s Boiler Room and he will unashamedly throw down sounds that will mix-up, make shapes and spin on its head. If you’re feeling leftfield and want to step outside, Greeds and Phresh Mentality will be performing spoken words in the Yard.

    The big man with big tunes DJ Motive has made a name for himself smashing up all types of parties, and this will be no different! Marcus Nasty, Rinse FM DJ and founder of the N.A.S.T.Y Crew (Kano, Jammer, D Double E) will step to the decks with UK House and old skool grime. With more names to be added to the lineup you can expect an epic block party of bashment sounds!

    Tickets go on sale from 4th April on Ticketweb...go get one and get involved!

    Keep your eyes peeled for future line up announcements and for latest newsby keeping up with the Streetfest Twitter and also by visiting their website… http://www.streetfest.net

    StreetFest are proud to announce a huge addition to the 2011 line up with GHOSTPOET.



    Having migrated from the capital of the West Midlands – Coventry – to the southerly climes of London, the eclectic, cultured sounds of Ghostpoet look set to leave a mark firmly on 2011.
    The softly spoken 24 year-old has already won over BBC Radio 1’s foremost taste maker Gilles Peterson and his Brownswood Recordings with a handful of off-kilter, loopy electronic ditties blessed with his delightfully rambling musings on modern life.
    Born and raised somewhere between London, Coventry, Nigeria and Dominica, Obaro admits that his heritage is important to him, but that it hasn’t consciously affected his musical career: “My parents enjoyed listening to music around the house but never really encouraged it as a career. I kind of pursued listening to various sounds late into the night when the house was asleep”.
    Don’t sleep on this young, inventive, British artist - he’s destined for future greatness.

    StreetFest is hyped to announce that Wretch 32, the new don of UK hip-hop, will be performing at this year’s urban extravaganza!

    The metaphor man, as fellow Brit rapper Devlin calls him - whose way with words and ear for a tough, infectious beat is guaranteed to bring dazzling lyricism and poetic resonance to East London’s summer event.

    Hailing from Tottenham, the 26 year-old has been a name to conjure within underground circles for a while, but now, signed to Ministry Of
    Sound/Levels Recordings and with his first major label single under his belt, his chart topping success is proving to be a place he may just stay!

    Offering a uniquely British vision, Wretch 32’s view of the modern world is full of pathos and humour, biting commentaries offset by moments of levity. Buoyed by the success of So Solid Crew and Dizzee Rascal, Wretch 32 admired the sound of the east London grime scene, and still does, especially the sort that has broken through commercially of late. He pinpoints their sound as having a “gritty polish – it’s slickly produced but it’s still got edge”.

    From bling-*obsessed bad boy who’d think nothing of spending hundreds of pound’s on a pair of Prada shoes, to the conscious rapper who these days gives talks to school kids about the right way to live. His debut album will detail his journey “It will be like a soundtrack to my life”.

    Purveyors and supporters of urban culture in the UK, Streetfest, are keen to share that Wretch 32 is the next key spitter and lyrical big-*hitter. This event uniquely combines a kaleidoscope of interactive entertainment through music, live performance art, film, fashion, dance, spoken word and sports all under one roof.


    StreetFest have also joined up with Adidas to give you out there the chance to win a pair of ltd edition Adidas StreetFest trainers.
