Streetwear brand Boxfresh along with agencies Jack Arts, Big Box, Cult Events and Tea & Cake will open the Fresh Out the Box festival on 17 May in Hoxton, London.

The event is part seven in a series of 25 Europe-wide celebrations for the retailer’s 25th birthday. It will feature a series of lectures, workshops, live music and DJ sets to celebrate street culture held in East London venues Lyst Studios and Hoxton Arches.

The day will end with an after party at Shoreditch club Kachette, with acts Fatema & the Eglo, Lil Silva and Swindle confirmed to play.

BBC Radio 1 presenter Nihal will host the lecture series, which will include talks from rapper Devlin, photographer Ewen Spencer and DJ, graffiti artist and actor Goldie. Workshops will be held on street art, tattoo design and fashion.

The first Boxfresh anniversary event took place at Berlin Fashion Week in January in a party that celebrated the UK garage scene.

Other events included It’s a Sheffield Thing, which saw the company present a night at the Sheffield University student union with DJs Toddla T and Shy FX, and a collaboration with dubstep DJ Skream on his tour finale at the Electric Brixton, London.
