Free music, art and films this weekend at Hackney WickED

Jul 28

If you’re a bit of a culture vulture and fancy some free music, art and short film this weekend, then make a trip down to Hackney Wick for their annual Hackney WickED festival. They’ll be showcasing local and international artists in and amongst gallery spaces and pop-up venues in the area.

Situated opposite Hackney Wick station (on the overground), the main stage will host live music all day Saturday and Sunday. Sounds for your listening pleasure will be brought to you by an assortment of bands and dj’s including ROTK√§PPCHEN at 8pm on Saturday who describe themselves as a cross between ‘Soulwax, Kraftwerk, The Whip and The White Stripes’.

When you’re not head-nodding and foot-tapping along to the music, you can wander around Hackney Wicked Yard and find yourself some bargains in the Flea Market (Saturday) and Fete (Sunday) open daily through to 6pm.

Then to finish off the weekend you can take part in the Coracle Regatta. If you didn’t know; “a coracle is a one-person boat designed by druids and woven from strips of the ash tree”. The race will start at the Eton Mission Rowing Club on Wallis Road at 3pm and if you take part you could win¬†the coveted Coracle Regatta trophy.

Fingers crossed the weather holds!
