The three-day Hackney Wicked festival showcases non-traditional art created in the formerly industrial community of Hackney Wick in East London, adjacent to the rising Olympic Village.
Artists open studios and personal flats so that visitors can experience the community.
With bands performing on rooftops and a wooden chicken torched at the end of the event, this unique festival stands out amongst the vast number of other annual London festivals.
