Bookings have been made under a diverse policy promising a 50 per cent female and non-binary ratio, and more than 50 per cent Black and POC artists. Following a commitment to similar booking policies at festivals such as Liverpool’s Sound City and Barcelona’s Sónar, Lobster Theremin have vowed to follow suit.
With the day festival taking place at an undisclosed location in North London, LOBSTERFEST will host five stages of live music all day from 12:PM to 10:PM.
