31st August 2019
- Brick Lane Vintage Shopping
Brick Lane and its nearby streets are home to tons of vintage shops. You could probably spend a few hours here, digging through the racks and racks of funky items from way back when. Some shops repurpose and repair old items too, giving them new life. Try Rokit Vintage to start, and then wander around and find the other shops in the area. Head to Cheshire Street once you’ve conquered Brick Lane for more.
One of Shoreditch’s most famous structures, BoxPark is made of shipping containers and is home to pop up shops where you can get food, drinks and more. Many up-and-coming fashion designers have pop up shops here, plus you’ll find cool homeware stores and more…it just depends on the week, as there always seems to be something new.
- Check out the world famous street art
One of the most popular things to do in Shoreditch, for both locals and visitors, is to check out its street art. You can find it everywhere around Shoreditch if you just wander and keep your eyes open. World-famous street artists like Banksy and Nathan Bowen have left their marks here, as well as many up-and-coming artists. New art appears every day, and is often around corners and down alleyways that most people walk right by without noticing.
- Go on a Summer ALL DAY PARTY
Yes – get ready for Global 12! Event attractions include:
Global 12 Festival will take place right in the middle of Shoreditch from 12 noon on Saturday August 31st.
- Go rooftop hopping
Shoreditch has its fair share of gorgeous rooftops for eating, drinking, and even swimming, and most are open to the public.
Shakka – The British-Born singer, who does not shy away from his Dominican roots in his music, admitted that his live shows were not to be missed. Speaking to Metro.co.uk exclusively, the producer said: ‘People always tell me that my live shows are something people look forward to every year. It’s like carnival you can’t miss it and it’s humbling to hear people say stuff like that.’ The two time MOBO Award winner, who collaborated with Boy Better Know’s JME on hit track Say Nada which boast 7 million views on YouTube; reached 25 million views for the hit single “Man Down” and working with Roc Nation on Rihanna’s next project will be the headline for Global 12 Festival 2019.
Silvastone – He went on to be nominated as ‘Best African Act 2015’ in 3 separate popular UK awards including ‘Best African Act’ at the prestigious MOBO Awards.
Nelick – Having quickly seduced hip hop fans all over France, we are sure it won’t take long for his music to cross country borders and reach even more people around the world.
Div3tran – 2015 X Factor favourites Reggie ‘N’ Bollie will be sharing brand new music with Global 12 Festival under their new stage name Div3tran.
Lauren Cofie – She’s got a history in music of her own already; she was once in an all-female group called Speechless with her sisters and she’s also scored big-time hits with the clubs as she stepped into the solo-scene through songs like “Love Me Again” featuring H Two O and JME & “Tonight” produced by Carns Hill
Talitha – Her genre ranges from alternative RnB to pop and trap. Her latest official single “Over Here” was released in early 2019 and you can stream it on Spotify now.
Killtime – Having quickly seduced music fans all over Spain, we are sure it won’t take long for his music to be one of the highlights for Global 12 Festival 2019.
Bina. – She is an alternative R&B singer-songwriter from South-London. Her lyrics are described as raw and honest, narrating experiences of love, loss and lessons learnt through life. She delivers soulful vocals over mellow beats.
Italo Blue – – Having quickly built a strong fanbase in Italy, we are excited to see him in action this summer.
Cheryll – Stating the likes of Aaliyah and Ashanti as musical influences, her sweet, sultry sounds are definitely addictive, and we look forward to hearing what’s next from this fresh new talent.
Kai Rabai – Kai Rabai is a Singer, Songwriter and Producer from North London, an Old Soul who’s empathetic nature shows it’s self through his songwriting ability and soulful melodies. Kai is inspired vocally by the likes of D’Angelo, Miguel and Bilal, whilst taking on these vocal influences, he has managed to manufacture his own incredible sound with his unique voice and ability to create productions from the ground up.
Jay-Rico – Jay Rico is a versatile artist who does not like to box himself into one particular sound: the sound of Jay Rico is always changing. “The Truth” E.P which “Make It” was released on is not just presenting one sound, there are five tracks, but each is unique in its own way.
Geovarn – First catching our attention with the hazy “All Mine”, Geovarn — a talented producer, rapper and singer — seems set against limiting himself, drawing on a range of influences to present a fresh brand of rhythmic R&B. Effortlessly switching flows over looped synths and off-beat drum work.
July, Jones – Now fully focused on her solo career with influences ranging from the likes of Halsey, Banks, Lorde to 070 Shake, July Jones is fast becoming the model and singer to represent a new wave of multi-genre, super talented young artists emerging from the UK. Outside of her solo career she is a prolific writer and has co-written with many other artists including: 99 Souls, Steven Manovski (Sigala), Raiven, DePresno, Jesper Borgen (Allan Walker), Draper, MOTi, Camden Cox, JYYE, 1991, Amaya with various tracks gaining BBC Radio 1 playlist support along the way.
