#R3D Market, the nocturnal street market organised by Red Gallery, which has helped revolutionise the street food market scene in London, will be throwing its closing parties this Thursday 15th and Friday 16th August in Old Street, Shoreditch. 

Spurred on by great food and great music, the event has seen capacity crowds of local artists, young creatives, international students, partygoers and foodies alike, all celebrating #R3D Market’s Balearic sunset vibe in the middle of London’s East End. As well as hosting some of the hottest street food vendors in London, this year’s market has been soundtracked by DJs from Rough Trade, Phonica, Dalston’s Vortex on Thursdays and Phil Mison and friends including Chris Coco, Pete Herbert and Moonboots, bringing the Balearicos party to the heart of urban Shoreditch on Fridays.

This Friday, legendary Café Del Mar DJ, resident Phil Mison will be joined by special guest DJs Justin Robertson and Nancy Noise bringing their own take on Balearic to the proceedings.

He has recently released an album under The Deadstock 33s moniker and is a firm favourite at festivals including Beat-Herder, Secret Garden Party and Bestival. Justin is joined by original acid house, Spectrum & Ibiza DJ veteran, Nancy Noise.
