From the creative mind that brought you Street Feast, come the latest project from Dominic Cools-Lartigue called Fairground. Launching on the 12th of April and running for 10 weeks, the festival aims to showcase some of the best music acts, street food, restauranteurs, thinkers and entrepreneurs in the capital.
Taking over a disused office block in Haggerston, it will incorporate different themes and experiences on each three levels to create a truly distinct weekend every week. The first floor will be a live event space, with brand takeovers from the likes of WAH! Nails, Run Dem Crew and Field Day delivering some of the freshest talent on the music scene.
The second floor entitled 'The Grandad Lounge' will be a relaxed hang out space, welcoming guest speakers, workshops, master-classes, talks and interviews and other creatively minded people.
And finally, the top floor will serve as the 'Fairground Diner', hosting a changing roster of left-field restaurants and chefs for residencies ranging from just a weekend to a whole month. Expect big names from the street food world, with the likes of Yum Bun and Baba G making an appearance.
A new and exciting approach to your conventional festival, this is just further proof that London is slowly but surely becoming the festival hub of the UK, with an increasing amount of fresh and distinct experiences that are long overdue.
