The UK Meeting of Styles festival comes to London – Full Press Details are here.
Sandwiched between the tracks on the north side of the overground between Shoreditch High Street and Whitechapel station you will glimpse an organic space filled with activity, and surrounded by painted walls. Imagine spending 3 days in a garden oasis, in the middle of the city, immersed in live painting and music, and all for free.
On the Spring bank holiday 28th – 30th of May, Endoftheline supported by Relentless presents the 7th annual International Meeting of Styles in London, with paint sponsorship from Loop Colors . This unique graffiti & music festival returns to the Nomadic Community Gardens site, off Brick Lane and Cheshire Street, for a third time.
Witness the awesome spectacle of live painting from 50+ painters, character artists & writers, collaborating on walls around the garden throughout the weekend. Artists will be painting wall eading from Brick Lane to the site so just follow the sound of aerosol cans.
No Meeting of Styles event would be complete without some diverse musical treats, this year we’ve got Ghosttown & the lyrical genius Dabbla, DJ’s Maj Duckworth, Sugai, & Super Scratch Sunday, plus Blabbamouf will perform on Saturday, Trackside Burners (Itch FM) will be in attendance, and we’ll be announcing special musical appearances and the Full Lineup to be released in the coming weeks.
As always expect to be kept very satisfied with food, drink & more all on site. Every year EndoftheLine make a donation to the Nomadic Community Gardens as a thank you for their ongoing support so we ask you to dig deep and help further fund this community led project.
EndoftheLine will be hosting a popup Rockwell House Bar, with tasty refreshing tipples on hand to keep you hydrated and happy. This year we have amazing support from Auchentoshan American Oak, the premium single malt whiskey supporting our event & launch with more to be announced.
Roving Cafe London, the ‘inhouse’ cafe, will serve up delicious hot food, sumptuous baked cakes & fresh coffee served from a vintage Italian truck underneath the mythical beast that stands at the entrance of the garden. On the BBQ will be the Dry Rub Club who’ll be cooking up flavoursome, marinaded delights, so make sure to bring your appetites.
A mini market of stalls will feature; art & clothing, and you can also bag yourself some Meeting of Styles merchandise, EndoftheLine apparel, we’re also joined by Vapez Club. If you or your kids feel like getting creative there will be workshops running so you can have a go at painting, in 2015 these were hosted Brave Arts who is stepping up to the plate again. As it’s the long weekend festivities will spill over to the Monday when the Nomadic Community Gardens will host their monthly party, and the majority of the Meeting of Styles walls should be completed.
