Fatboy Slim to unveil artwork at Portuguese music and art festival in London this weekend

"Bringing the soul of Lisbon to the heart of London"

Fatboy Slim is set to unveil new artwork at the cutting-edge music and arts event, Festival Iminente in London this weekend. Check out the full line-up below.

Taking place at The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane from Friday 19 – Sunday 21 October, the showcase of ‘explosive and experimental’ Portuguese and international art and music promises to “bring the soul of Lisbon to the heart of London”.

Curated by Portuguese artist Vhils and Lisbon’s Underdogs Gallery, this weekend will see the first displayed of a multimedia collaboration between Vhils and Fatboy Slim – with a work that combines video and music and was created between their studios in Lisbon and Brighton.

“I am honoured to collaborate with such a global cultural icon, whose music has been the soundtrack to our lives,” said Vhils. “Fatboy Slim is a fearless and visionary artist much loved in the Portuguese-speaking world.  He played an unannounced DJ set at the sell-out Festival Iminente in Lisbon in September to an ecstatic crowd and I can’t wait to unveil this artwork to a British audience.”
