Dancin’ In The Street
Local promoters Nice Like Rice and Pretty Pretty good are joining forces this summer for Just Shake – a Sheff street party like no other. On June 10th a mighty 16-hour carnival will kick the summer off in style, closing down a whole road for the festivities, before the party later heads into Hope Works for a full venue takeover until the wee hours.
The event will welcome the likes of Detroit house and techno legend Omar-S, the Pender Street Steppers and Canadian producer Jayda G to the decks. There will also be live music sets from disco minimalist Harvey Sutherland, jazz/hip hop artist Da Rico and Sheffield University’s own Samba Band. Poile Art and Cosmic Disco will be on décor duty with a few new installations up their sleeves, and expectation is high after the collective created a giant walk-through kaleidoscope for their Winter Carnival with Joey Negro in Feb.
Some of the city’s best street food sellers will be on hand to keep you refreshed while the bar will be stocked with summer cocktails and punch all day to complete the party vibe.
