Last weekend we hit up STREET FEST for the first time. Located at Hearn Street carpark in LDN, we’d heard only good things about it so made the trip down to Manchester just for the occasion.
As soon as we walked in this was the first thing we saw;
There were so many talented & cool people there it was unreal! The street art was on point and the live act line up was insane; Lady Leshurr, PIFF GANG, Devlin just to name a few! We’re now PIFF GANG fans, remember seeing that feature on them in i-D magazine a while back? Hit them up on twitter: – @PIFFGANGUK
We spotted some very cool cats there such as Adidas Stylist / Street Blogger extraordinaire Cheyenne Davide – @YeahItsShyy – Check out her blog here: http://www.yeahitsshyy.com/ – We had a stan moment when we saw her as we’ve followed her blog for so long & probably made a fool out of ourselves gushing about how much we love her but oh well!! Luckily she was really sweet & even more gorgeous in the flesh!
The talent of the street artists was CRAZYYYYY!! Here’s a few of our faves below… (bare in mind it was FREEEEZING on the day, these artists were propably freezin their asses off but still producing insane images, how do they do it?)
Our ultimate favourite street art was this pretty lady wearing a WU TANG beanie – by the amazing Phil Blake AKA PHILTH – Seriously want this on my wall!!! Check out his work here: http://phillblake.squarespace.com/
We recommend you check out STREET FEST next year.. Hopefully we’ll be there next year reppin EDUCATE&ELEVATE seems like the perfect place for us!
