We'll have plenty of fun for the kids - including bouncy castles, art and craft workshops / hula hooping lessons and workshops, facepainting, glitterpainting and tattoos plus lots of stalls and yummy food!

HEADLINERS:
The Future Shape Of Sound June 2017
Crime Gospel, primitive Blues

Somewhere in the uncharted backstreets east of East London exists a forgotten orphaned modern day Dickensian dirt road where a raggity community of crack hookers, drug dealers, hobos jungling up in scrapped motors, chariot healers, and bewildered residents exist side by side with musicians and sky-pilots of different persuasions attending the street’s mosque, African and Amish community churches. In that road stands a building without a doorbell or a sign that houses producer Alex McGowan’s (aka Captain Future) Space Eko East Recording Studio, which some say is really just like another church: The Church of Rock’n’Roll.
