We’ll be taking over of East London’s coolest places to hangout. Our ‘block party’ which will start from 4pm will take place at Shutterbug. The bar which also supplies delicious crêpes also doubles up as gallery displaying the work of some of the city’s emerging creatives.
On the decks until 1am will be some of London’s hottest DJs including Amplified who will be in charge of taking you back to the sounds of the 90s from Hip Hop to New Jack Swing.
Complete with dancers, pizza and chalk murals no block party would be complete without a dance-off. Prizes will be given to the best dressed individual who captures the spirit of ‘Do The Right Thing’ as well as an exclusive dance off to the iconic “Fight The Power” by Public Enemy.
