PLEASE note this event takes please on SATURDAY 3 and SUNDAY 4 Jul (from 12-7pm) Gillett Square, Dalston
A jam-packed weekend of live music and dance workshops in Dalston's hippest square.
Over the weekend New York City’s Asphalt Orchestra will wind their way through the audience – a modern marching band like no other. London’s coolest experimental jazz band, Polar Bear, will take to the stage with music from new album Peepers. The wonderfully eccentric 12 piece baritone saxophone ensemble, Tokyo-chutei-iki, will perform. London-based Congolese band Zong Zing All Stars are guaranteed to get everyone moving. Jazz, hip-hop, funk and even a bit of spoken word are expertly woven together by London five piece, Benin City - BBC 6 Music’s Craig Charles’s ‘one to watch’. And Bristol’s Zun Zun Egui join the party with their hyptonic, joyful sound, which captures shades of Fela Kuti’s grooves and krautrock’s rhythms.
Learn to Hip Hop with Legendary Boy Blue Entertainment and dynamic b.supreme. Try your moves with champion same sex ballroom dancers The Sugar Dandies, bop to the vibrant Bollywood Vibes or shimmy with the infectious Tropical Isles.
