SATURDAY 5TH AUGUST 2017
PLAN YOUR DAY
With just under two weeks to go until the fifth instalment of VISIONS FESTIVAL gets underway, it’s time to start planning what to see and what to do. From the (now famous) Visions Dog Show, a tattoo exhibition and screen-print sessions to live music, DJ’s and punk-rock karaoke – you’ll find everything you need below and can see where and when it’s all taking place.
We have eight individual venues for 2017. The majority of music performances will take place at Oval Space, Mangle, London Fields Brewhouse, NT’s and Sebright Arms – all within handy walking distance of each other. See the full line-up and stage times to plot your day (click to enlarge):
SPACE STUDIOS, COURTYARD AND CAR PARK
Once again there’ll be street food traders operating at Space, with this year’s offering brought to you by Arancini Brothers, Mama Jerk, Le Merlin and Happy Endings. Le Bao will also be serving their delicious Taiwanese steamed buns at London Fields Brewhouse.
PLUS don’t miss a crepe cook-off between Frankie Cosmos & Kero Kero Bonito from 3pm at Le Merlin!
We are pleased to welcome a special DJ stage hosted by SkullCandy, with DJs running all day. There will be a craft beer bar by Signature Brew and a big game of Beer Pong hosted by Happyness at 6pm. Make sure to stop by for that.
Also check out the screen-print studio run by The Positive Press, where you can get your very own Visions t-shirt screen printed during the day and a record & zine fair brought to you by south-Londoners Tome Records.
Inside Space Art Studios itself, we’re hosting a very special tattoo exhibition, studio and temporary station, brought to you by Sailor Jerry. There will also be featured films showing the history of tattooing, and a cocktail bar.

We’ll be showing a film programme, with a selection of 4 fantastic surf, snowboard & skater films from Volcom and an animation from acclaimed artist Joan Cornella. Check out the schedule below.
