The Kopparberg Urban Forest MØs out with a hairy finish
This Saturday and Sunday (2nd-3rd August) will see the close of The Kopparberg Urban Forest after a packed out five week residency at The Bootstrap Company in Dalston.
On Saturday 2nd August Kopparberg will celebrate the growing trend of gentlemen flaunting facial hair of the floral variety with The Kopparberg Florist. Inspired by the Kopparberg summer advert that features an elderflower-bearded model and the recent trend for flowered beards (featured by The Independent and many more), The Kopparberg Florist will invite Dalston’s follicley gifted men to have their beard customised by London’s top floral stylist Lara Sanjar. The most impressive beard of the evening will be voted for on Twitter and rewarded with a case of Kopparberg. Don’t fear girls, you can join in the fun by trying on your own floral beard too!
Over the past five weeks forest-goers have got down with Kelis, been serenaded by the dreamy Lucy Rose, felt nostalgic with former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes, danced under an East London sunset to Little Dragon and practiced their best Kanye West impression to the sounds of Gold Digger at Hip Hop Karaoke.
Having provided the soundtrack to Kopparberg’s most recent TV ad, MØ seems a fitting end to the popular forest party pop-up and will be joined by Scandi rockers Last Lynx and Norwegian DJ’s Project Fresh Socks.
