For my Broadcast unit at University, my group and I decided to head down to Street Fest in Shoreditch and interview a number of people about East London and whether it's still up and coming of dying out. Street Fest was located in Hearn Street car park off Curtain Road. The event was home to a number of creatives who showcased their work, including graffiti artists, rappers, break dancers, djs, skateboarders, and more.
Street Fest brought together an electric mix of people from all over London to enjoy the urban event. Personal high points from the day included Lady Lykez, rapping, 'I Love My Butt', and an energetic set from Work It dj's, who delivered a mix of old skool hip-hop classics, dub and drum and bass, that got the crow.
We managed to interview a number of people who took part in Street Fest, whether they were performers, members of the public or people promoting their own brands and designs. Everyone we interviewed was more than happy to give their opinions on the event itself and East London.
Street Fest proved to be an exciting one of a kind event, that I would happily attend in the future.
