The RecordShop announces The RecFest, a free festival featuring local and global talent

The RecordShop presents The RecFest, a brand new festival for the local community, featuring performances by some of the most interesting up-and-coming musicians in London and the world. Supported by the Arts Council, Haringey Council, O2 Telefonica/Virgin Media, and The Mall (Wood Green), the RecFest is part of The RecordShop constant commitment to supporting new musical talent while providing a free space for music fans to gather and celebrate creativity.

On Saturday 12 August from 11:00 am to 10:30 pm, The RecFest takes place in The Mall in Wood Green and aims to attract over 300 visitors bringing local businesses, creatives & audiences to enjoy a day of music and fun. The event opens the doors to everyone, adults and kids alike, allowing them to drop in throughout the day and enjoy live music, workshops, and creative activities by booking a free ticket. The initiative serves as an opportunity for higher exposure, allowing musicians and creatives to access new audiences while also making industry contacts.

ADS KRU is an ensemble that has revolutionised the streets of the most important cities in Spain, using rap as a tool for social transformation. The evening will culminate with a performance by artist dancer and choreographer Slim Iggs from Nigeria, whose dance moves will get the public dancing along. With a fusion of dancehall and soca, South London artist Fullavibes will represent the tropical islands of Jamaica and Guyana, giving a show full of raw vibes and excitement.

Expect also to hear a fusion of African afrobeats, R&B and Hip-Hop Music when seeing Nigerian artist and producer 705, he will play a mixture he calls afro-fusion, matching his African heritage with Western inspirations. The RecordShop founder and main organiser of the event, Mary Otumahana a.k.a.  WondRWomN, will share her intricate wordplay over jazzy, modern, or old-school hip hop beats all the way through to hard-hitting EDM and more unique styles.
