Dalston Music Festival in Gillett Square – Ticket Giveaway

Dalston Music Festival is set to once again bring music to the East London streets of Hackney for it’s second year of running, popping up for the day at 1pm in Gillett Square on 9th July, and running through to 6am in nearby venues.

Tucked away from the mover and shaker bustle of that is Kingsland road, the days itinerary consists of getting down to some jams in the square while having a beer or two and eating to your hearts content – a dream Saturday!

Providing the music by day are the likes of the Soul Jazz Recording Soundsystem ft Oxman, Ruby Rushton, and Newton Dunbar. Weather permitting, it’ll sure to be a classy affair of bare foot happiness. Later in the day at 6pm the party will spill into eight venues, each just round the corner from Gillett Square, putting on different musical flavours to check out over the course of the evening.

Have a look at the full line up and listing below!
