On Saturday 4th July the Kopparberg Tattoo Parlour will pop-up at Kopparberg Urban Forest in Hackney Wick offering guests the chance to temporarily embellish themselves in Swedish-inspired body art for free.
The Tattoo Parlour is inspired by the new Kopparberg summer advert which features vines of strawberries intertwining with refreshing limes to form tattoos over the model’s bodies. A festival fashion must-have, temporary tattoos are a hit with the likes of Rihanna and Cara Delevingne, who recently stormed the red carpet covered in elaborate blossom-inspired tattoos.
Those sporting the temporary designs will also have chance to win a VIP Urban Forest experience by uploading their pictures to Twitter using #UrbanForest
Once inked up, it’s time for the crowd to brush their shoulders off as headlining the night will be DJs So Fresh So Clean x Tuckshop x Soundwave Festival (Croatia). Playing back-to-back, expect the forest to be filled with a riotous mix of classic hip-hop, RnB favourites and old skool jams.

Continuing the fun, Sunday 5th July will see the prestigious RnB legend and multi-award winner Miss Dynamite take to the woodland stage to perform huge hits from a back catalogue including ‘Boo’, ‘Neva Soft’ and ‘Dyn-na-mit-tee’.
Miss Dynamite said: ‘Kopparberg Urban Forest is going to be a wicked gig right in the heart of East London. The venue will be brilliant to play, so I’m looking forward to seeing everyone down there on the night!’
Miss Dynamite will be followed by the institution that is Hip-Hop Karaoke with DJs from Southern Hospitality. One of London’s most celebrated and roadblocked parties, Hip-Hop Karaoke invites the public to stand in Miss Dynamite’s footsteps and flex their rhyming muscles to give the crowd the hip-hop performance of a lifetime.
Entwined in Hackney Wick for five weeks from 10th June until 12th July, Kopparberg Urban Forest is a free event that will see Swedish and London culture collide in a heady mix of live music, street food and drink.
In an exclusive partnership with Spotify, Kopparberg Urban Forest has worked with artists playing the festival to curate special summer playlists so that fans across the UK can tune in from anywhere. Playlists from the following acts are currently available at these links with more to still to follow: DJ Yoda, Slow Club, The Sunshine Underground, Submotion Orchestra and Youth Club.
