It’s one of the best and friendliest festivals of the year and one that we keep coming back to here on Inspiring City, not least because it’s also held on one of the coolest streets in London.
Musicians, street artists, food merchants and dancers all combine with the public to make for a great atmosphere. Given the fact that this years festival also happened on one of the hottest days of the year, it had a little bit extra of the party atmosphere about it.
We’ve been covering the event for the past four years now and the format is essentially the same. The street segments with different types of music and assigned artists whilst the food stalls mix in between. The adjoining streets are then utilised as stages in front of which people can hang around and enjoy the environment.
So with posts like this it’s always about the photos, so here we have some of the images from the Whitecross Street Party 2016.
