The Adidas stage will host a frenzy of breakthrough and favourite artists, including headliners Ms. Dynamite and Goldie and performances by Amplify Dot, DJ Woody, plus more. Don’t miss the ‘Unsigned London’ stage hosted by Music is Remedy, as well as the Plug in to Perform stage, a platform for hot new electronic music acts.


Streetfest Art:

We can’t wait for an expressive display of colourful and vibrant art from international graffiti artists and tattooists. Representing the street art arena will be Clog2, InkTen, DEP, Noir, Zina and other artists.

Art curator, Secret Walls (formerly Secret Wars) will be fighting it out hard in their live graffiti battle between Captain Kris + Obit vs And + Gent. Secret Walls gives young artists a platform to showcase their creativity, whilst competing in a highly charged arena, armed with (just) pens and paints. This is the ultimate ‘fight club’.

Grinding, grabbing, ramps and pipes. Watch aerodynamic action from BMX riders, Voodoo Unicycles – extreme unicycling best described as BMX biking on one wheel, Game of S.K.A.T.E and an exhibit of British rollerblading from Kingdom.

Streetfest Dance:

Expect dance offs in the form of Hip-Hop, Street Dance and B.Boy styles plus a Run DMC style battle to end all battles. Shake a leg.
