FILL Launch Party

19 September 2019

FILL lands on Dalston Roof Park for the festival’s annual kick-off party, in occasion of the unveiling of this year’s highly anticipated speakers line-up.
The evening will feature performance acts by the London-based poets and spoken word artists Iris Colomb and Serena Braida, and music by the collectives DJ SUGO and Suerta. Come and join us for an evening of estate all’italiana on the notes of experimental funk, soul, and Italo.
To top this up, some very special Italian treats from Macaroni Liberation Front and a selected bar menu will be served throughout the evening.

We have a roof. We have Negronis and Macaronis. Get down. Bring your mates. Celebrate the end of summer with us.

Suerta Music

Suerta is an Italian DJ who lives in London, with a special interest in diasporic and non-Western music developed through his education in ethnomusicology. Suerta blends African and South American rhythms with 70s funk and soulful disco numbers, hints of Italo and synth pop, dub, house, broken beats and anything else in between.


SUGO is a multi-faceted project reflecting our love for art, music, and cinema. Exhibitions, movies and DJ sets in European radios (NTS. Soho Radio, Le Mellotron, Radio Raheem) and in the best European clubs. From disco to new wave, from jazz to techno, SUGO – like the sauce – is a sapid mix of everything we love. Since 2010.
