Flat Iron Square hosts a free music festival every Saturday in September alongside its regular weekend Flea Market. Kicking off with a set from Common Ground's co-founder Beans on Toast who headlines the first event on the 1st September, Common Ground will cover different genres from folk and soul to reggae, Afrobeat and punk. Music comes from the likes of duo Nova Twins, Too Many Ts, and DJs including Chris Tofu (who runs Shangri-La at Glastonbury and who programmed Lost Vagueness), and Secret Garden Party's AAA Badboy aka Kaptin Barrett. Soho Radio broadcasts live from the festival which is enhanced by the mix of vintage finds, street food and buzzing restaurants in the local area.

About Flat Iron Square

The Flat Iron Square project is an exciting piece of town planning and urban renewal. This Bankside development has eight pop-up kitchen units at its heart, with restaurant consultant Jon Spiteri - a founding partner at St John who helped relaunch Quo Vadis in 2012 - curating the different food offerings.
