ForestOne of last summer's most loved pop-up festivals is set to return to London, the Kopparberg Urban Forest.

Entwined in Hackney Wick for five weeks from 10th June until 12th July, the event will see Swedish and London culture collide in a heady mix of live music, street food and drink. For five weeks, under the canopy of the Kopparberg Urban Forest will showcase the  beauty of the Swedish pine forest surrounding the brewery in the small town of Kopparberg. Here, summer fun seekers will enjoy sunny days and balmy nights around a stage that will be graced by the UK's top festival music artists, DJs and established Scandi acts. Bands set to play the stage this year include Katy B, Miss Dynamite, Slow Club, Submotion, Orchestra, Citizens! and The Cuban Brothers. A range of Scandinavian artists including Heart/Dancer and Summer Heart will also join this year's festival bill. Carved into the forest will be two bars - a woodland bar serving Swedish fruit ciders and beers from the Kopparberg Brewery. The second, the Kopparberg Urban Forest's Frozen Fruit Cider Bar. Alongside this, a selection of the finest street food eateries. An eclectic mix, the offering includes Buffalo Joe's, Hackney Pearl, Mama's Jerk Station and Le Bun.
