Land Of Kings

Unbelievably, and with blessed relief, festival season is nearly upon us. First up on our radar on May 4th/5th is the Dalston-based Land Of Kings, sprawled over the ever-growing number of nightspots in and around London’s fashionable Kingsland Road. Building on the somewhat rough and ready success of last year, they’ve already announced some tasty looking acts: Slow Club, Elphino, NZCA/Lines, Maruice Fulton and Speech Debelle, to name a few.

Almost as exciting (almost) is the Art/interactive programme, with projects from Hackney Film Festival, Classic Album Sundays, Hammer & Tongues, Literary Deathmatch, Dalston Darlings Women’s Institute and Punch Drunk’s sister company, Gideon Reeling. Given the organisers’ knack of seeking out spaces off the usual clubbing track (see 4 Aces), all this feels like a good way to shake off the festival cobwebs.
