Preview: East End Live

Maria Turauskis


Organised as a cross venture between the East London Film Festival and Old Spitalfields Independent Labels Market, East End Live is a new one-day festival coming this July. Featuring over 60 bands at 12 venues across Shoreditch and Bethnal Green, this multi-venue event is set to play host the cream of the East London music scene, along with a good dollop of happening international bands thrown in for good measure.

The talented and achingly cool line-up includes the likes of Toy, LOOM, Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs, The Monochrome Set, Wet Nuns and Sauna Youth, along with a host of up-and-coming acts and DJs including Heavenly Juxebox. Most exciting of all perhaps however is headline act Pere Ubu, who will perform their very own live soundtrack to cult 60s’ horror film Carnival of Souls – fusing both the music and film events together perfectly.

East End Live is scheduled for Saturday 13th July. Early bird ticket are sold out, but you can still purchase advanced tickets for £15, or £20 on the door. The wristband exchange will be at the Griffin Pub on Leonard Street, with many of the festival’s venues within walking distance of the exchange. Bands will be on from five, with DJs continuing the tunes until 5am.
