After a successful summer in Dalston last year, the Kopparberg Urban Forest is back, planted in Hackney Wick for five weeks from 10th June until 12th July. The event sees Swedish and London culture entwine in a heady mix of live music, street food and drink. In conjunction with MAMA & Company, Sound Technology Ltd and HARMAN are proud to sponsor the event with the festival benefitting from a JBL VTX V20 sound system, together with a Soundcraft Si Performer console, and AKG wireless and stage microphones.
