Are you ready for one seriously epic party in Hackney this June? With a lineup of incredible talent from across the capital – spanning hip-hop, grime, garage and drum n bass – Born and Bred is all set to be a highlight of the London festival calendar. Headlined by ILOVEMAKONNEN on Saturday 4th June and Azealia Banks on Sunday 5th June, it’s time to prepare for an unforgettable weekend of live music.
