Following an amazing response in 2013, with in excess of 15,000 people attending, the third Soho Flea Market event promises to be another resounding success with its high quality line up of specially curated ‘creative market stalls’. There will also be an outdoor stage organised by City Showcase, the year-round not-for-profit festival of new music, featuring breaking musicians and entertainers. The stage is to be hosted by Debbie O’Hare from new artist promoting YouTube channel and music platform, Unsigned TV. She is also a radio DJ on “W12P Wales in Eurovision”.
Artists appearing on the stage will include local legend The Soho Hobo, plus breaking artists including indie band Peasant’s King, emerging soul singer Louise Golbey and alternative electronic artist Amani.
