Streetfest at Gillett Square on Saturday 15 September 2018

Gillett Square, the East London creative hub, is hosting the tenth Streetfest: the UK’s premier urban culture festival, bursting with street art, dance, fashion, sport, food, and of course, music. 🎶 🍔

For ten years Streetfest has pulled together the newest and most iconic talents from London’s vibrant underground culture, and this weekend, there’s to be a huge party to celebrate one decade since its inception.

For one day only, people of all ages can enter the festival for free and see an impressive Selectors Assemble takeover of the main stage, with scene originators from the Plastic People club days and new talents taking to the decks.

Up-and-coming influencers will also be featured on the ‘On The Rise’ stage, which will see nine fantastic new acts handpicked by local music champions Music is Remedy.

Elsewhere, choose the street dance you want to see, as well as the S-K-A-T-E tourna-ment that’s running throughout the day! Make sure you catch the live work of Paint Freaks, who will be turning Gillett Square into a veritable museum of graffiti and murals.

Future is Primitive: premier @ House of Vans / Friday 9th September 2016


Doors: 19:00

@ House of Vans, Arches, 228-232 Station Approach Road, London SE1 8SW

Free entry


The UK and European premiere of Japanese film maker Katsuya Nonaka’s skateboard and shakuhachi documentary Future is Primitive is set to screen at House Of Vans London on Friday 9th September’s edition of #SkateFryDays.

In Future is Primitive, Nonaka talks to leading skaters from all around the world, as well as Japanese and non-Japanese players of the traditional bamboo flute, the shakuhachi.

Although these are two seemingly very different activities, both are now encountering changing status and a rise in popularity. A new version of the shakuhachi is being manufactured which is easier to play alongside Western orchestral instruments and skateboarding has just been confirmed as being a recognised sport in 2020’s Tokyo Olympics.

Alongside the screening, Katsuya Nonaka will be participating in a Q&A with Daphne Greca from Brixton’s Baddest skate shop.
