This summer, hidden away behind the urban streets of Dalston, the Kopparberg Urban Forest will see a magical mix of live music, street art and mouth-watering food and drink in a corner of the capital.

Opening for five weeks at Dalston’s Bootstrap Company from Wednesday 2nd July until 3rd August, the Kopparberg Urban Forest will house a bespoke woodland bar inspired by the beauty of the Swedish pine forest that sits above the brewery in the small town of Kopparberg.  Gracing the stage will be established Scandinavian acts such as Little Dragon,MØ, Francobollo, Karin Park and Bernhoft and some of the UK’s top festival artists including New Young Pony Club and Lucy Rose.

After dark, the Kopparberg Urban Forest will bring together the most revered DJs and club nights, including The Doctor’s Orders, Project Fresh Socks, Hip Hop Karaoke, and the UK’s legendary indie night Propaganda to create a boutique party atmosphere for friends below the twinkling light of the stars.

Also hidden deep within the Kopparberg Urban Forest, will be three of East London’s finest leading street food eateries including Brick Lane’s Swedish Bar and Kitchen, FIKABuffalo Joe’s and Mama’s Jerk Station servingup a combination of Swedish meatballs with skin on chips, Herring, traditional Swedish chocolate desert, buffalo wings, pulled pork burgers, Jerk chicken wraps, saltfish cake and chicken dumpling soup, all to be washed down with a Kopparberg  

Entry to the Kopparberg Urban Forest will be free and is open to over 18s only. Head tohttp://kopparbergurbanforest.com for further information.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
