What? A Ritual For Elephant & Castle presents a celebration of art and culture in Elephant & Castle culminating in a collaboration between visual artist Marcus Coates and disco ensemble Chrome Hoof as well as a set from much talked about Swedish percussive duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums backed up by a 20 piece drum circle. For Fans Of: Sensory overloading.

Visual artist Marcus Coates and psychedelic rock orchestra Chrome Hoof are about to start a four-month artist residency in the South London neighbourhood of Elephant & Castle to tie in with part of a huge gentrification scheme for the area. Chrome Hoof are a 10 piece glam death-disco outfit form London. For Fans Of: Kraftwerk, The Egg, ESG.

Wildbirds & Peacedrums are a husband-wife duo from Västra Götalands lä, Sweden.

After reports of some special performances at SXSW 2009 this promises to be a treat. For Fans Of: Lykke Li, Volcano!, Indian Jewelry.

Additional collaborations come from: Le Gun, Nick David, Annemarie Lean-Vercoe.
