On Sunday 3rd May from 12pm until well into Monday (6am) Dalston welcomes the return of Land of Kings, a day of music, art, film and – of course – food. Alongside live performances from the likes of NZCA Lines, Hairy Hands, Koreless, Toby Gale and Tom Vek (see below for full lineup so far), there's a whole host of other treats lined up at various venues around the Dalston area, including Birthdays, The Nest and Arcola Theatre to name just a few.

There'll be "Grime Karaoke", for instance, which pretty much does what it says on the tin: members of the public are invited to step up and show off their wordsmithing skills. Then there's Rio Cinema, who'll be airing a few short films around midnight, Increments – a design duo who offer up "a multi-sensory drinking den" – and Oval Space, where Bugged Out will be hosting a plethora of DJs until the sun comes up and the realisation of Monday morning makes its way into people's brains.

Grab tickets for £25, plus more info, from the Land of Kings site.
