ELCAF unveil poster by Jillian Tamaki, announce venue -and guests

Tickets for the East London Comics and Arts Festival -ELCAF- go live today. The event has been expanded to 2 days this year for the first time, being held on the 20th and 21st of June from 10am to 7pm, after growing quickly in the four years since its inception; tickets for one day will cost £3 as per previous prices and £5 for entry on both days. Interestingly, the venue has also been split into two, taking place across The Laundry and Space in Hackney, with the idea that all the pressure won't be on one space, in a bid to avoid queuing. The venues are close to each other, not more than a couple of minutes walk, which seems like a good idea- Thought Bubble and other festivals take the same approach and it works well. Also unveiled today was this years poster, designed by artist in residence, Jillian Tamaki. It's also revealing in that it tells us what other guests will be attending alongside Tamaki: Michael DeForge, Max, Brecht Vandenbroucke, Daniela Olejnikova, Arnal Ballester, Henning Wagenbreth. No doubt prints of the poster will be available to buy on the day, with full programming for all events and further guests to be posted on the website very soon.
