Lost Weekend: August 5th – 7th

This weekend's best culture, shopping, food and drink events

Published on August 4th 2011.


Lost Weekend: August 5th – 7th

Field Day
It’s that time of year again where festival-goers are licking their lips and looking for the last few opportunities to pimp their summer time glad rags. After the success of Lovebox, Victoria Park is putting on another day of top-notch music, food and much more in the form of Field Day 2011. Celebrating its fifth birthday of new, alternative, pioneering music, Field Day organisers Bugged Out, Eat Your Own Ears, Bloggers Delight, Lanzarote and Village Mentality, boast another epic line-up to wow the London masses. After the huge success of Jamie XX’s remixes on the late Gill-Scott-Heron’s 2010 album, I’m New here, and other collaborations, the party vibes will surely be at full tilt when the XX band member puts needle on record. Other artists in the mix include James Blake, The Coral and Jamie Woon.

Brixton Splash

Brixton Splash
It’s community-led, colourful, diverse, wild, got the tastiest jerk chicken around – it’s Brixton Splash 2011. Celebrating its fifth anniversary, the street party will be taking over Atlantic Road, Coldharbour Lane, Electric Avenue and the Windrush Square and Peace Gardens with performances from local musical talent as well as stalls with local crafts and objects. Everyone is welcome, including families, to enjoy the fruits of the south London streets, which will be lined with sound systems, street performers and a whole load of happy faces.

American Beer Festival

American Beer Festival at the White Horse
If you’re a fan of beer – or a fan of watching people get hideously tipsy on beer – or if you just like listening to live music with a beer then surely there’s only one place you should be this weekend and that’s at the American Beer Festival. You can expect a wide range of tipples from all over America including Goose Island, Rogue and Sierra Nevada. Other breweries expected to be present include Anderson Valley, Flying Dog and Ommagang for those with the more experienced palette. Blues and rock cover bands, The Steelers and Fallen Heroes, will be strutting their stuff while you immerse yourself in hop heaven.

Disco Shed

Disco Shed at Bloomsbury Lanes
For a night of completely random antics, head to the Disco Shed, where you can totter about in a specially made wooden shed littered with garden gnomes or you can just head to the banging disco floor with a host of DJs and VJs including resident DJ Del Gazeebo laying down bootleg, soul sizzling disco party tunes. Nostalgic childhood games will be out in force including giant twister and a hula-hooping competition. There will also be a full-on, blitzed out karaoke session for the pop star wannabes. If that’s not enough for you, then there will also be a few bowling sessions kicking off.

£5
Tavistock Square

Saturday 5th August

Gay Bingo

Jonny Woo Gay Bingo 
Gone is the conventional stereotype of bingo being just for pensioners consuming £1 pints in a dreary hall in Slough. In is Jonny Woo Gay Bingo at the Soho Theatre. After previous stints at the ICA, T Bar, Old Truman Brewery, Cargo the club night/show/game/drag act Johny Woo is back with another lavish and spectacular night. DJ John Sizzle and Ma Butcher will be around to keep the flamboyant show in full swing with party music to accompany the bingo drama. Set in the atmospheric Soho Theatre, revellers are in for a night they won’t forget in a hurry.

£7.50
Soho Theatre
