Scandinavian and East London cultures collide as The Kopparberg Urban Forest plants itself in Dalston.
 
This summer, hidden away behind the urban streets of Dalston, The Kopparberg Urban Forest will see a magical mix of live music, street art and mouth-watering food and drink entwine in a corner of the capital.
 
Opening for five weeks at Dalston¹s Bootstrap Company from Wednesday 2nd July, The Kopparberg Urban Forest will home a bespoke woodland bar inspired by the beauty of the Swedish pine forest that sits above the brewery in the small town of Kopparberg. Showcasing the intriguing beauty of the forest through an East London lens, The Kopparberg Urban Forest will be a truly unique and sociable space to spend the summer.
 
Until 3rd August, Kopparberg will give visitors to the forest the chance to escape the city and join them for amazing live music. Gracing the stage will be established Scandinavian acts such as Francobollo, MØ, Karin Park and Bernhoft and some of the UK¹s top festival artists including Lucy Rose,New Young Pony Club and Lucy Rose.You can find the fullline up listed below.
 
After dark, The Kopparberg Urban Forest will bring together the most revered DJs and club nights, including Sweden¹s finest Little Dragon and Project Fresh Socks Hip Hop Karaoke, and UK¹s legendary indie night Propagandato create a boutique party atmosphere for friends below the twinkling light of the stars.
 
Ensuring delight for all the senses, hidden deep within the The Kopparberg Urban Forest, will be three of East London¹s finest leading street food eateries including Brick Lane¹s Swedish Bar and Kitchen FIKA, BuffaloJoe and Mama¹s Jerk Station servingup an a combination of Swedish meatballs with skin of chips, herring, traditional Swedish chocolate desert, buffalo wings, pulled pork burger, jerk chicken wrap, saltfish cake and chicken n dumpling soup.
 
Not forgetting the liquid refreshment Kopparberg will serve its delicious premium fruit ciders alongside a rarely seen selection of Kopparberg brewery beers while a small cocktail bar will serve up refreshing cocktails, including East London¹s own cocktail, The Dalston Thing.
 
Graffiti from London¹s local street artists will also be showcasedfor the duration of the Kopparberg Urban Forest¹s residency with other artists asked to contribute their own thoughts and stories inspired by the forest throughout.
 
Working closely with London-based charity and venue The Bootstrap Company, Kopparberg will help facilitate work that supports local creatives and social microenterprises by representing the best that East London has to offer. As part of this support, ?1 from the sale of each Dalston Thing cocktail, a golden rum, melon liqueur and Ting grapefruit drink cocktail, will be donated direct to another local charity, Dalston Bridge. When the Urban Forest closes its doors, Kopparberg will also be gifting its trees and greenery to The Bootstrap Company for distribution among its projects.
