This October, Festival Iminente returns to London, once again invading The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane. During 19-20-21 October the festival of explosive and experimental Portuguese and international art and music will bring the soul of Lisbon to the heart of London.

Curated by Portuguese artist Vhils and Lisbon’s Underdogs Gallery, Festival Iminente not only offers the chance to immerse yourself in the most innovative new music and art from Portugal and Portuguese-speaking countries, but also enlists some of the world’s most creatively exciting artists and music acts to invade the capital with their best work.

This year’s festival will see the unveiling of a visual artwork from world renowned DJ, Fatboy Slim. A multimedia collaboration with Vhils, the work combines video and music and was created in a cultural exchange that saw each artist visit each other’s studios in Lisbon and Brighton.

Vhils comments; “I am honoured to collaborate with such a global cultural icon, whose music has been the soundtrack to our lives. Fatboy Slim is a fearless and visionary artist much loved in the Portuguese-speaking world. He played an unannounced DJ set at the sell-out Festival Iminente in Lisbon in September to anecstatic crowd and I can’t wait to unveil this artwork to a British audience.

There’s even more for art-lovers, as Underdogs Gallery will open a pop-up shop in the Old Truman Brewery’s iconic Boiler House, presenting a showcase of unique pieces, prints, editions and publications that reflect its work with a roster of cutting-edge international visual artists.

With day tickets from just £15 and a three-daypass for £40, Festival Iminente promises the best new music set against a backdrop of exciting newart in an atmosphere of intense collective intimacy.
