Summer transforms London. When the capital is graced with a bit of extra vitamin D and heat, the people and attractions of the capital shine, unlike something you can describe unless you have experienced it yourself.
One of these highlights is of course the festivals of London! Check out our favourite five!
- Field Day - Saturday 3rd June 2017
Victoria Park is situated right in the middle of east London, in between Hackney, Bethnal Green and Mile End. The park hosts this renowned London festival, which in previous years has attracted huge headliners such as Skepta and James Blake. The mix of “weird pop and indie up-and-comers to underground dance producers and folk musicians” is not to be missed.
- British Summer Time Festival: Justin Bieber – Sunday 2nd July
C’mon, don’t kid ourselves. We have all cecum to the Bieber renaissance. This concert is part of a string event dates at the British Summer Time Festival, with other artists such as The Killers, Green Day and Phil Collins. But don’t hesitate over the Biebs.
- Camden Rocks Festival – Saturday 3rd June 2017
Camden is known as the “hub of the UK’s rock ’n’ roll scene” and the festival is jam packed with rock and heavy metal artists across 23 venues. Perfect for those seeking an alternative festival experience, these hot headliners won’t disappoint.
- Lovebox – Friday 14th – Saturday 15th July 2017
Again, Lovebox is also hosted in Victoria Park and is one of the largest festival London accommodates. The headliners this year are yet to be announced, but this festival has ceased to disappoint in previous years with the likes of Katy B, Snoop Dog and Rudimental.
