Community Festival

New music festival takes place across 11 Shoreditch venues from 3 to 5 November

BIKE shops, bakeries and butchers will be transformed into venues as a new music festival uses the local community to showcase the emerging music artists of the moment.

Called, appropriately enough, Community, the festival takes place between 3 and 5 November across 11 of Shoreditch’s top venues, as well as less conventional spaces, with some shows free.

Organisers, Festival Republic, have teamed up with some big names from the music industry, including Kerrang! and 4AD, to secure some of the hottest tipped DJs, producers and bands.

Venues include Cargo, Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, Ace Hotel, Red Gallery, The Courtyard Theatre, The Macbeth, The Old Blue Last, Village Underground, XOYO, Zigfrid Von Underbelly and Concrete.

Lianne LaHavas and Petite Meller (pictured) are top of the billing, along with Young Guns, Clean Kut Kid, Rat Boy and Skinny Girl Diet.

But be quick – some tickets have already sold out, and the free events are on a first-come-first-served basis. Click here for full line-up and tickets.
