The Live Music Culture Clash

3rd-4th February 2017

2 Days - 4 Stages - Shoreditch - Richmix

London is a powerhouse of musical innovation and The London Remixed Festival brings you the finest selection for 2017. Showcasing the best in Latin Grooves, Afrobeats, Tropical Bass, Vintage-Remix, Desert Remix, Balkan Beats, Urban Roots, Acoustic Soundclash and Brass Band Remix, we are kicking Global London into the future!

The festival is a celebration of the best emerging musical talent and genres and will offer creativity, fun and madness, complete with buzzing atmosphere & music… but without the mud, rain or hassle of camping. Expect performances from over 25 cutting edge bands and DJs across 4 stages over 2 days, all in one vibrant venue nested in the heart of Shoreditch.

The London Remixed Festival is brought to you by some of the most dynamic festival organisers, venue promoters and music agencies the UK has to offer. We aim to create the perfect festival experience; indoor camping areas to chill out, fully converted disco lift to navigate between the stages and a silent disco. Continental Drifts and Global Local; the producers of the most rocking festival stages across the globe, are excited to be back, joining forces once again with their long standing musical partners Movimientos, Wormfood! London, Two For Joy Music, Woodburner, and some new ones Vibes and Pressure and Arts Canteen for the return of LONDON REMIXED FESTIVAL 2017.

Continental Drifts/Global Local are all about creating a buzzing atmosphere, they have put together some of the best line-ups at the UK’s greatest, biggest and most loved festivals. Over the years they have supported 100s of up and coming bands, 1000s, who all lost their festival virginity on their stages.
This year’s headliners include Beating Heart + Afriquoi (DJ set), Gypsy Hill ft Koby Israelite, and The Elephant Sessions from Scotland.

Please note: as this is an indoor festival we strongly encourage dressing up wildly!

In addition we will be holding a very special free concert on the Friday in aid of refugees:

Folk of the World

Throughout the course of history global hubs like London have been defined, shaped and moulded by a myriad of ethnicities constantly adding ingredients to their cultural and musical melting pots. Here we explore The Next Wave - The Latest Sounds of the London Underground at our ‘Folk of the World’ concert in association with the Refugee Kitchen charity. The event will be held at Richmix as part of the London Remixed Festival 2017 and will showcase refugee artists as well as musicians from Syria, Irak and Turkey. This will be a free event acting as a fundraiser for the Refugee Kitchen, to help celebrate the beauty, richness and diversity of the refugees music and culture as well as raise awareness of the refugees situation in the UK and what you can do to help.
