UPRISE FESTIVAL VIDEOS

UpRise Festival was very special indeed. Lyrix Organix took over the grassy Dalston Roof Park with 15 outstanding poets, story-tellers and musicians – with some special guests including Lyric L, Eska and Dean Atta. The free community event was one-in-one-out for most of the epic 8 hour session, with over 3000 people attending events across Dalston. Big ups to Brazen Bunch, Paul Richards and all the volunteers who made this important anti-racism event such a success. If you were unlucky enough to miss out, check out the photo gallery and these videos courtesy of Jon D Barker (of MID TEA):
