Some dreams do come true. Singer songwriter Mark-Anthony Abel is making his dream come true to put on a peace event with a difference. Inspired by the feel good atmosphere of the Olympic Games and the Queens Jubilee of 2012, STreets Of Peace gives a diverse mix of artists, DJs, urban acts and comedians the opportunity to support Mobo winner Akala on the 9th August at the Collosseum Club in Vauxhall.

“It is about inspiring people to want something better, to appreciate art across different genres and to think about what peace actually means. No one needs to preach about peace, but just having a great time in an environment with cool people, can be a real positive experience.”

STreets Of Peace began its life as the idea of Mark-Anthony Abel but without the creative force of Roy Cooper, (Daily Mirror Graphics Editor), it might have been a wholly different story. It is Roy’s fabulous skill as an artist that has brought a strong visual presence to the event. “This concept seems to be working, attracting big name acts to support with the likes of chart topping urban star Angel headlining the Brixton Jamm on the 18th July.

“STreets Of Peace allows me to raise money for good causes, promote something refreshing whilst also working with influential and fantastic people like James Whale, Thad Baron, Dan Greenpeace, Normski and Roy Cooper. But being able to gain the support of great acts like Akala, Angel, Chris Helme, The Soul Mavericks and Jamaican Rock legend Peter Straker, best friend to the late Freddy Mercury, will be the piece de resistance. We have been incredibly fortunate to have gained support and with events at the Cargo Club in Shoreditch and the Flyover Portobello in Notting Hill Gate,  where you’ll also be able to see Kerrang favourites Rock Band Bleech and dance music star Joy, we are very excited about Summer 2013.”

Fifteen finalists from Rock, DJing and Rap genres have been chosen and will compete to be crowned STreets Of Peace Rockstar, Supastar DJ and Rapstar for 2013.
