Rinse | Born & Bred kick back to its home of Haggerston Park last weekend on June 4th and 5th. The festival is now a teamwork with Rinse FM - From grime to hip-hop, from house to drum ‘n’ bass, jungle, garage, techno plus much more, it remains firmly rooted within the sounds within and past the capital. Instead of attempting to chaotically cover all bases, it keeps its remit firmly, tightly centered on London talent.
Found again compiled leading lights of grime, garage, dubstep, drum & bass jungle and together with breakthrough acts to celebrate the present and future sounds of London. Saturday saw acts such as ILoveMakkonen, P Money, Slimzee, Wookie, CASisDEAD, Benga and Jammer entertain crowds across four stages including Lord Of The Mics, Livin' Proof and Heritage vs. London Some'ting. Mike Barnard was there for the Sunday.
This is an needed festival for the city and also provides a platform for both rising talents and pioneers in their respective scenes to showcase their sounds and we eagerly await the announcement of next year’s big draws.
