Introducing Festival People, a brand new day event hitting East London’s Barking Park celebrating youth culture in the Capital.
With the festival placing emphasis on audience participation, people will have the opportunity to co-curate the event and interact via gamification, promotion, design and more, coming in many different forms and exploring new ways to bring people together, with the spirit of “It’s what you make it.” Getting the audience to participate and collaborate with Festival People poses a fresh and exciting way to enjoy events – whether that’d be creating polls in advance and using this feedback to form decisions or having quests to unlock a secret stage – gamification will be at the heart of the festival, helping to give the event purpose and offer a unique experience.
Festival People will be a summer celebration for all, whether you’re a student finishing up your exams, visiting the Capital or looking to kick off your holidays in style. The festival’s programming represents the soundtrack of the next generation, featuring a lineup that reflects the youth culture of today with a mix of the newest rising stars and the biggest headline artists, alongside free-form programming aiming to challenge the status quo. Having already confirmed a strong bill of talent across the spectrum of rap, garage, house, reggaeton and drum and bass, the roster is bound to cater to a multitude of tastes, offering the opportunity for people to see their favourite acts and discover new ones in the process. In a nutshell, the festival’s intention is to be bold, fun and unpretentious in an ever-evolving world, so grab your festival people for what’s sure to be a fun and innovative way to start your summer.
