PUNKX: a free one day festival of punk in King’s Cross

Produce UK was briefed by Argent and King’s Cross to create a free celebration of 40 years of punk at one of London’s most exciting destinations.

Counter-culture performance group Mutoid Waste Company presented their Mad Max-style vehicles, completely transformed from waste into exotic creatures such as “Rockit” and “Rustang Sally”. We also collaborated with students from Central Saint Martins to explore the creative scene that grew up around the infamous warehouse parties of the ‘90s.

Fire spitting and stilt walking performers, punk-inspired workshops, makeovers, food and drink, and visual attractions made it an authentic and inspirational day, generating a huge amount of engagement on social media with the hashtag #punkx.
