Taking place 25th – 27th September in London, the International Festival Forum is an annual event that invites over 450 festivals to be represented in one place, bringing together international festival bookers and booking agents to experience an exciting schedule made up of workshops, showcases, expert panels and networking sessions. This invite-only event is an essential networking opportunity for all those involved in the festival industry, with future festival headliners performing at showcases in Camden venues Dingwalls, Lockside Camden, and Camden Assembly.
MN2S is proud to be one of IFF’s Agency Partners. This year we’re bringing two of our best artists to showcase their talents as part of the week’s events: soundsystem veteran General Levy and the boundary-pushing brass act Hackney Colliery Band. Both are playing on Wednesday 26th September, with General Levy performing at 7:30pm at Canalside Bar and Hackney Colliery Band performing at 7:55pm at Dingwalls.
Fresh off the back of two smash singles (‘Flex’ with Fedde Le Grand and ‘Heater’ with Chase & Status) that have further established the artist as a dominant force in popular music, General Levy brings his energetic live performance to IFF, sure to get feet moving and gun fingers permanently in the air. Levy will showcase newer material alongside classics such as the legendary jungle track ‘Incredible’.
Speaking of incredible – the supremely talented Hackney Colliery Band will also showcase their unique sound at London’s Dingwalls. Having performed alongside Amy Winehouse, closed the Avalon stage at Glastonbury, and wowed worldwide audiences with a 45-minute set at the London 2012 Olympics’ closing ceremony, there’s no stopping these boundary-pushing brass rule-breakers.
Speaking on the MN2S showcase, Sales & Marketing Manager Edmund Singer-Kingsmith has said: “We’re thrilled to be an Agency Partner with IFF this year and are grateful to Greg and the team for bringing us on board. General Levy and Hackney Colliery Band are two of our most explosive live acts and we can’t wait to have them play for us.”
