Live streams from The Pickle Factory as well as an afternoon session on the Oval Space terrace will take place this weekend.
Each night a bill of five acts will be playing the East London spot to raise funds for the Marcus Intalex Music Foundation. Friday's lineup sees local veterans DJ Storm and DJ Perception heading up the night alongside Darwin, re:ni and Shannen SP, then DMX Krew plays live on Saturday with DJ sets from Truly Madly, Gwenan and Joe Delon. It will be the first time the Pickle's sound system has been switched on since March.
While The Pickle Factory will be closed to the public, the group's newest venue Canvas, just next door, will be open as a bar with the livestream broadcasting in.
In between broadcasts, The Pickle Factory's sister venue Oval Space will be opening its terrace for a Saturday afternoon open-air session with Peach, Hamish & Toby, Heels & Souls and Truly Madly. In compliance with the UK's pandemic guidelines, the terrace party with be table service only.
