We return, this Saturday night to headline Elefest 2014, the annual festival of music, theatre, film, art and community participation that takes place all over Elephant & Castle. This year The StockMKT, for the third time at Elefest, will offer our magical mix of London’s best street food, live music and DJs. There will also be magnificent cocktails, wines you’ve probably never heard of and craft lager for the hipsters of course!
We’ve got DJs Dave the Hat and Soho Pirate, Glyn on the decks and we’re super-thrilled to have the funky, soulful Brazilian ska/funk band, The Fontanas performing. Specialists at whipping the crowd in to a funky Latin frenzy, the Fontanas have been rocking stages from Bestival to Glastonbury; the Secret Garden Party to Boomtown this summer. Positive & totally feelgood, their sound combines funky Brazilian refrains with jump-up ska. For more info: Facebook / Twitter / Bookings
We have street food aplenty to blow people’s taste buds: Abycina (Vegan Ethiopian/Eritrean) Souvlaki St (proper Greek kebabs); Makatcha (amazing Malaysian flavours), Bhangra Burger (the return of our very first night market headliner); Colonel Toms (deep south style Gumbo & Cornbread); Kansas City’s mighty Prairie Fire (barbecue brisket); and Yu Kyu, our favourite, Japanese Katsu King. For pudding? We’ve got Custom Creams debuting their winter offer: waffles with nitrogen crèmes and ice creams
Jensen’s vs. Lot 9 = Gin vs. Absinthe We have a cocktail-clash. Bermondsey small batch gin purveyors Jensen’s will take on Peckham’s absinthe specialists Lot 9 in a specially constructed ‘potting shed’. The Longwave Craft Beer Bar will have hoppy brews from Bermondsey brewing legends Kernel and Partizan. Bermondsey Gin / Lot 9
VISUALS from Electric Pedals’ bike powered cinema + Frack Off – Electric Pedals will be projecting films by Vivienne Westwood’s eco-collaborators Frack Off, as well as Elephant’s very own London College of Communication. For over five years, Electric Pedals have been using the energy generated by people riding bicycles to power cinemas, music venues, radio stations, theatre productions, art installations and educational workshops. All of this without using a single battery!
We think that’s plenty of good reasons to come and join us, so get it in the diary and we’ll see you on Saturday lovely peeps!
