A very special event is taking place in London this Halloween. Take three spectacular Hackney locations, add legions of new talent and you have a new DICE-run festival aiming to create a unique audience experience in some of the most impressive architectural spaces of East London.
Making up the holy trinity of venues are the magnificent 18th century church of St. John at Hackney, the Hackney Round Chapel, and Oslo, site of the old Hackney station and a well-loved DHP music hub.
Lush sonic soundscapes courtesy of Rhye and Aquilo, amongst others, will fill the arena at St. John church. Hackney Round Chapel will be playing host to doom rock and proto-indie/grunge sounds of The Wytches and The Thurston Moore Band respectively, while Oslo will be the home of some of the freshest young talent including Manchester-based Belgian producer Oceaán, creative teen sensation Pixx and the pop grunge of Icelandic all-girl trio Dream Wife.

Music highlights: Aquilo, Dream Wife, Jessica Pratt, Luke Sital-Singh, Nadine Shah, Oceaán, Pixx, Traams, The Thurston Moore Band, The Wytches
