London is set for another Scandi summer with the return of the pop-up festival Kopparberg Urban Forest, in Hackney Wick for five weeks from 10 June ’til 12 July.
Cider and street food
Entwine yourself in leafy canopies and wild flowers inspired by the Swedish pine forest that surrounds the cider brewery in the small town of Kopparberg. Sip on ciders and beers from the forest bar, or cool down to cocktails infused with cider at Kopparberg Urban Forest’s Frozen Fruit Cider Bar.
Feast on an eclectic selection of street food including Mama’s Jerk, Buffalo Joe’s, Hackney Pearl and Le Bun. We can’t wait!
Free gigs and music
If you haven’t got yourself tickets for the big festivals this summer, don’t worry: five weeks at Kopparberg Urban Forest will bring you a huge selection of free gigs from top bands, including Katy B, Miss Dynamite, Slow Club, Submotion, The Cuban Brothers, and music sets from Chromeo, DJ Yoda and Trevor Nelson. We’ve even heard there will be hip hop karaoke!
Kopparberg Urban Forest is working with local artists, carpenters and musicians from the local area, including a partnership with Hackney Wick’s Yard Theatre, selling the Hard Yard cocktail, that will see a £1 donated to the theatre with each drink.
Get yourself to the forest, who said London isn’t green?
Kopparberg Urban Forest | Launch night 10 June with Katy B headlining.
