5 AWESOME THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND: FRIDAY 21st AUGUST

Posted by

1. Visit Dismaland

Not in London but we all wish it was! The bit of news that has gone viral this week. Banksy dystopian amusement park DISMALAND opens it's doors this weekend in Bristol. A demented assortment of bizarre and macabre artworks from no less than 50 artists from around the world including Damien Hirst, Bill Barminski, Caitlin Cherry, Polly Morgan, Josh Keyes, Mike Ross, David Shrigley, Bäst, and Espo. In addition, Banksy is showing 10 artworks of his own.

Dismaland is open to the public from August 22 through September 27th, 2015 and information about pre-booked and at-the-gate tickets is available here. There’s also a series of events including a show by Pussy Riot and Massive Attack on September 25th. Admission prices start at £3. Make your bags, we are going to Dismaland!

2.Black Market

“Everyday should be different.” That’s the motto behind Black Market. Every weekend of August, you can go and discover new sounds, flavours and ideas.

The Black Market Festival stems from a need to unite an eclectic crowd with a passion for discovering new flavours, sounds and ideas. “We will bring to Shoreditch a breath of fresh air by introducing new acts, spontaneity, great food, originality and exiting rhythms from all nations" If that doesn't sound like a promise, then I don't know what does...

Kachette – 347 Old Street, EC1V 9LP
Every Friday of August from 5pm till 12am, free entry
Every Saturday and Sunday of August from 10am till 12am, free entry until 6pm,(market from 10am till 6pm)


3.Wyrdout Festival

A new music festival has arrived to town. Promoters, bands, events organisers, labels, bars & fans alike pulled together to organise a make-shift “fall-out” festival that surpassed everyone’s expectations, as a slew of bands we know and love descended on London to play a series of gigs in intimate spaces. Kicking off tonight, Wyrdout promises not to disappoint

Birthdays / The Shacklewell Arms

Saturday 22 August (doors 16:00)
