" Forget walking on water - we’re dancing!... down the River Lea!" - A boat party with a difference
We catch up with DJs Dom Mandrell (Soul Picnic/BringBackTheBeat) and Stuart Patterson (The date/Love Vinyl) to talk about their latest project
ON THE WATERFRONT BOAT PARTY
SATURDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER
HEADLINE DJ: ASHLEY BEEDLE (Xpress2/Black Science Orchestra)
Dom Mandrell: “To my knowledge this is an absolute first. Summer Boat parties on Thames are commonplace but the River Lea hasn’t really been explored in the same way, plus we have managed to get legendary DJ and producer Ashley Beedle (Xpress2, Black Science Orchestra) to headline for us both on the water and in our destination venue Stour Space, so this will be something just a little bit special."
There will be three boats sailing at different times throughout the day/evening from Markfield Park on the borders of Walthamstow/Tottenham journeying down to Stour Space a spectacular venue right on the rivers edge overlooking the Olympic Stadium in Hackney Wick. See link below for more details/tickets..
Stuart Patterson: Yes, when Dom came to me with this idea I realised it was a great way of using the River Lea to unite our different crowds” Dom Mandrell: “ Stuart’s been doing amazing parties for years primarily around Hackney, while I have been building a following in and around E17 with festivals like Soul Picnic and the BringBackTheBeat dance tent at The Walthamstow Garden Party so this seemed like such a great and way of pulling things together and creating some special memories.
