Back for the 2nd year in a row from one of the biggest names in beer is the LDN Block Party with Goose Island. This year’s critically acclaimed musical guest is the band White Lies who will headline the one day festival to take place in RED Market in London’s Shoreditch on the 23rd September. Supporting the band are hip hop success story Age of L.U.N.A, Scottish indie duo Honeyblood, quartet Superfood and R&B superstars Courts. Between the acts and closing the night will feature next level DJ sets from local legends John Robinson and Flashback Records.
Accompanying the eclectic musical line-up will be an equally exciting roster of beers to include Goose Island favourites, such as the award-winning Goose IPA, Bourbon County Stout, Sofie, and 312 Urban Wheat Ale, plus the new Goose Midway. There is also a new collaboration with Munich based brewers, Spaten Brauerei, alongside rarer beers from Goose Island’s pioneering Chicago brewery.
And what would a block party be without great street food? Goose Island has also teamed up with a variety of local street food vendors to tantalize tastebuds on the day. Goose Island favourites, Smokey Tails from Hoxton Square, will be bringing their classic Midwest themed ribs to feast on, with Greedy Khao offering an authentic Thai menu bursting with flavours and spices. Straight out of Spitalfields, Engine Hotdogs are bringing their famous home made American style hotdogs and Biffs Jack Shack will be bringing tasty and indulgent vegan cuisine to tuck into. For those with a sweet tooth, you can get your dessert fix in the form of posh, gourmet waffles from Waffle On.
Josh Smith, European Brand Ambassador at Goose Island Beer Co. said, “This event is all about bringing the spirit of Chicago to East London and championing local talent, to hero the community and showcase some of the best bits that East London has to offer.” This all-day festival has something for everyone and is the perfect way to say goodbye to summer 2017.
