Dalston’s homegrown, multi-venue fest Land of Kings returns, bringing together all the nooks and crannies of the neighbourhood for a day/night takeover.  Presenting heroes local and adopted, the programme toasts the E8 manor, ever-endowed with more music and arts venues than pretty much any corner of the capital.  Alongside Dalston mainstays, festivities sprawl across everything from galleries and underground bunkers, to ocakbasi basements, car parks-cum-block parties and rooftop gigs, transforming the high street’s humdrum.  Record labels, art collectives, promoters and local eateries all weigh-in, for a 16-hour stomp around Kingsland.


For one day, the Kingdom is yours..
