SATURDAY 4TH AUGUST 2018
PLAN YOUR DAY
With the sixth instalment of VISIONS FESTIVAL fast approaching, it’s time to start planning what to see and what to do. From the (now famous) Visions Dog Show, a tattoo pop-up and screen-printing 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 2018. The majority of music performances will take place at Oval Space, Hangar, LFB – The Arches, 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:
Once again there’ll be street food traders operating at Space, with this year’s offering brought to you by Club Mexicana, Kalimera and What The Fattoush?
We Slay Poké will be up on the Oval Space terrace and Le Merlin will be at LFB – The Arches.
We are pleased to welcome a special DJ stage hosted by Super Bock, with DJs running all day. There will be a Super Bock beer garden, including a GIF photo booth and a big game of Beer Pong hosted by Sorry and others. 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, with limited editions designs from Johnny Hookworms and Old Habits.
On the subject of Old Habits, we welcome back the famed East London tattoo parlour for a special game of ‘Roll the Dice’. Festival-goers will have the chance to try their luck and see what design they land on.
Lastly, we welcome House of Vintage down with a specially curated collection of vintage band tees and we are also introducing ‘Future Visions’ (a Palm & Tarot reader) to the mix. Mystical!
VISIONS DOG SHOW
The Visions Dog Show kicks off at 12pm and is located at the Paddock behind St. John at Hackney Church. It will be compered by Jen Long and judged by members of Savages, Happyness and Blaenevon. Closest station is Hackney Central Overground. Organised in association with All Dogs Matter and The Line Of Best Fit.
