Travelling cult event Unhinged Festival comes to London on Friday 23rd November at the legendary Electric Brixton - an 1800 capacity converted theatre nightclub and music venue.
Unhinged is the first major event to showcase both household names and breaking artists from across the music, film, fashion, visual & performing arts worlds all under one roof.
Performers such as hip hop sensation Ghostpoet (DJ set), world loopstation champion, festival favourite and beatboxing pioneer Shlomo and singer and writer Ben Ottewell from the Mercury Prize winning indie-folk cult legends Gomez, share the limelight with breakthrough artists Lazarus & The Planecrash, pop diva Ysan Roche and hotly tipped blues trash rockers and vocal chamelons Quixote.
Surrounded by the two-tier Unhinged Exhibition which features everything from a ceiling suspended sculpture gallery, live painting showpiece by renowned street artist Blam a screening of the worldwide acclaimed neo-Giallo short film Yellow, and a huge array of works from London's finest painters, fashion designers, photographers and other visual artists, Unhinged closes the night with DJ Christian Laing (creator of London's biggest indie clubnight Buttoned Down Disco and Glastonbury favourite) rocking the heaving dancefloor into the early hours as he brings back his popular subsidiary club night, Cover to Cover, exclusively for Unhinged festival.
Unhinged is an arts collective founded by artists Eimear Bruen and Cameron Laing, who moved to Berlin in 2011 and forged a philosophy in artistic presentation, which combined with huge press and radio support, brought an estimated 1200 people to the first ever Unhinged on a freezing Berlin night in early 2012. As the collective grew, the Unhinged team have been able to plan this bigger and even more extravagant follow up London Unhinged with further shows planned in New York and Paris in 2013.
Bringing together groundbreaking, established artists with the next generation of household names from such a comprehensive artistic spectrum is set to become the a regular feature in the Unhinged philosophy, as they continue to scour each city for the very best talents from everything off the wall, out of the mainstream and, perhaps a little...Unhinged.
