The MEOKO Project
Friday 28th June
5pm - 4am
THE MEOKO PROJECT IS MOVING TO VILLAGE UNDERGROUND!
The MEOKO Project is a very special event, and it requires a space that can accomodate all the different elements involved, from the film screening and the pop-up fashion market, to the epic party afterwards. For this reason, we have relocated from Red Gallery to the spectacular Village Underground, which is still right in the heart of Shoreditch but is more able to suit our needs and trading hours. The whole 'project' will now run from 5PM until 4AM, with music and DJs from the very beginning and complimentary cocktails and delicious canapés served to all those who have purchased the 'Full Project' tickets for the film screening and party.
The MEOKO Project is a 11-hour musical and cultural experience located right in the heart of East London. Alongside a stellar musical experience featuring rare London performances from the likes of Cadenza’s Valentino Kanzyani and Jun Akimoto of the London label and party collective, Fuse, it will bring together individuals, brands, and collectives under one roof to showcase the creativity and innovation that surrounds London’s colourful nightlife and music culture.

5.30pm – 7.00pm: Complimentary drinks and canapés for press and all those who have tickets for screening (on a first come first serve basis)
5.00pm – 11.00pm: Boutique streetwear pop-up market
Some of our favourite up and coming streetwear brands will be showcasing their creations. The collections on offer will be closely connected with club and youth culture in the UK, with the outlandish partiers who wear them, with the sweaty bodies that dance in them. Featuring the likes of Puckoo Couture, Fuudhoods, and Only Child London.
5.00pm - ALL NIGHT: London Nightlife Photography Exhibition curated by Daddy’s Got Sweets
For half a decade, Beth Marsh, under the alter ego Daddy’s Got Sweets, has been observing, documenting and commenting on the colourful and controversial culture that runs through London’s clubs and parties. A photographer, clubber and large personality, Beth exposes the true grime and grit, the honest beauty, and the un-posed perfection of the people and artists who make up the underground scene.
7.15pm – 9.00pm: Film screening: ‘BEATZ: Divergences and Contradictions of Electronic Music’ (Tickets must be purchased in advance) + POPCORN (tickets must be purchased for screening)
MEOKO are excited to be hosting the London premier screening of the new and highly anticipated BEATZ documentary.
