july 10th - 12th

HOXTON ARCHES  |  402 Cremer Street, London E2 8HD


Following last year’s hot and juicy tropicana experience, we are back with our fourth event Summer Festival: Psychedelia.

Spread across 10th – 12th July, Hoxton Arches will be transformed into a psychedelic inspired cosmic universe, showcasing mind altering artworks from creative agencies, collectives, publications, textile designers, visual artists and print studios from around the UK.


line-up & activities

Boasting 14 exhibitor stands, the festival will feature the work of Material GalleryBelly KidsPirrip PressBrothers of the StripeBen Oakley GalleryEast London PrintmakersNot Another BillThe Flood Gallery, plus many more.

 Alongside the exhibitor stands will be a psychedelic featured wall, exhibiting exclusive prints from a selection of handpicked artists. Keep you eyes peeled for the likes of Steve Thomas, Paul Blow, Saskia Pomeroy, Supermundane and Pâté. But hurry, each print is in an edition of 20 so once it’s sold, it’s gone for good!

 Additional psychic festivities include a ‘print your own Magic Mushroom’ screen printing workshop with Hello Print Studio, silent Wes Wilson auction, The London Illustration Fair print shop, street food vendors, live music, DJs and a fully stocked summer bar.


Featured Studio: Heretic 

Print pioneers Heretic Studio will be unveiling a selection of highly anticipated new works, as well designing the Summer Festival’s poster. Heretic’s hypnotic geometric patterns, kaleidoscopic landscapes and florescent colour palette makes them our ‘one to watch’ creative partner.



Battling it out throughout the festival in a live 2D verses 3D illustration show down will be all-male illustration crew Brothers of the Stripe and graffiti collective Pen Pushers.

Hoxton Arches’ two outside areas will be brought to life by visual art and design collective Bread Collective and some of London’s finest mural wizards.

Launch Party

 Kicking off the festival on Friday 10th with a late night bash will be the celestial sights and sounds of DJ Jo Eakins, playing an all-vinyl psychedelic rock and roll set accompanied with a liquid light show. Students get 50% off Friday tickets using the promotional code ‘cosmic’.
