Born & Bred is true to its name. It’s devoted to what makes the London music scene so special. Throughout the first weekend of June, Haggerston Park in Shoreditch will be hammered by a mash-up of grime, hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass, house, techno, and garage. It brings together young artists and established icons of all rave-dance genres. It’s at once a tribute to all the sounds that owe their volume to the City, and an invitation to the world of hip hop. Saturday 4th sees iLoveMakonnen headlining, bringing American R&B to Haggerston Park, while AJ Tracey keeps the grime local, performing tracks from the Alex Moran EP. This contrast shows what Born & Bred is all about, and that’s just two of the acts on one of the days. Sunday 4th sees Azealia Banks take over from iLoveMakonnen with her unique brand of effortless rapping and rapid beats. Then there’s Novelist. Calibre. Geko. Koreless. The line-up promises to honour all things dance. And just like last year, it promises grimy fun from early morning into the evening.
London is world famous for its music events and festivals – it’s almost impossible to pick one from the lot. This year Rinse FM and Found Series have teamed up to make Born & Bred a real contender. Early bird tickets for the whole weekend start at just £30.00, but tickets are going fast. Second and third wave release tickets go up by £10 respectively, meaning the most you have to pay is a mere £50.00. Add that to the wide array of musical genre and style on offer, and you have a bargain wrapped in an experience of culture and talent.
If that wasn’t enough, Born & Bred’s day party promises to go well into the night with the official after party. It will take place on both nights in favourite venues across Shoreditch. And yes, there will be more acts on offer into the early hours.
Shoreditch is easily accessible from the Megabus stop near King’s Cross Station. So count on us to carry you home, hangover and all.
