Intended as a celebration of Dalston’s rich and diverse cultural tapestry, Land of Kings encompasses music, theatre, art and food, spread over multiple venues between April 28th & 29th. Now in its third year, it is a glowing testament to one of London’s thriving creative communities with the homegrown festival serving as an alternative royal knees-up to Prince William and Kate’s nuptials. Showcasing a wide-ranging program of events that span pulsating basement dens where revelers are treated to DJ sets from the likes of Romy XX, Hannah Holland and local talent Shut Up & Dance and rising MC Ghostpoet.

This year’s festival features an exclusive collaboration with Absolut Vodka and multi-media director, Saam Farahmand aptly called ‘Absolut Dalston’. Launching on Thursday, the 28th with a ‘shooting party’ where festival goers will be filmed dancing, with the footage being used as live, remixed visuals for the following night’s party. On Friday 29th, Saam curates a one-off, audio-visual DJ event with mash-up pioneers 2manyDJs for an almighty Land Of Kings rave.

Keeping in line with the royal theme, the Dalston Darlings will be celebrating the Wedding their way by hosting a daytime Royal Cafe atop the Dalston Roof Garden, for the space’s season premiere.  Looking out over the E8 skyline, the ladies will be serving guests high tea, gin cocktails and a BBQ.  Lovestruck couples have the opportunity  to wed on the day in a (not quite legally binding) ceremony. Elsewhere, Havana Club Paladar will debut a two-day London vs. Havana extravaganza, curated by Blacktronica’s Charlie Dark at MC Motors, a unique warehouse space set in the heart of Dalston, featuring rare films, secret story telling and fresh sounds from both cultures. And for the foodies, a brand new addition will be Yianni Papoutsis and his Meatwagon army. The award-winning burger maestros will be making their first public appearance since the runaway success of #Meateasy, by bringing their own special something to the celebration.
