The city always rocks but with such a horde of delightful music events to choose from, you’ll be stuck for choice. But who says you have to choose? Why not go to them all?
Kicking us off is the Wireless Festival from July 5th to 7th at Finsbury Park. It’s huge this year with Cardi B, Travis Scott, Future and Migos expected to make an appearance.
Starting on the same date but extending right through to the 14th July is British Summer Time, a festival made up of open-air concerts in Hyde Park. There are some outstanding acts on the bill including Robbie Williams, Celine Dion, Florence and the Machine.
Standon Calling brings July to a close and so if you want to see Rag N Bone Man in action, as well as the legendary Nile Rodgers and the likes of Wolf Alice then you need to get yourself over there. As well as great music, you can enjoy a session in a hot tub, a costume parade and something we would love to see is the legendary dog show, whatever that turns out to be…
Fancy something different? The Meltdown Festival runs from the 3rd to 11th August and is a collection of gigs at the Southbank Centre. Each year, a single person decides their ultimate dream line up and this year, it is no other than the legendary Nile Rodgers at the helm. Expect an eclectic mix but expect quality and top performances too.
South West Four is two days of electronic euphoria at Clapham Common. Pop on over to catch Craig David amongst others.
The 80s gave us all kinds of must-forget fashion but it was a great decade for music and so its no wonder that 80s in the Park is slated to be a massive sell out again this year. Grab your dayglo leg warmers and your ra-ra skirt (cos you still have that right?!) and head on over to enjoy tunes you can really sing along to.
Light up the disco dance floor with some amazing tunes at the One Day at the Disco festival on August 24th. This is one of those festivals that you really can’t miss but you’ll have to beg and plead for a ticket as the event at Three Mills Island, London is apparently sold out.
No London festival list would be complete (and this isn’t a complete list, nowhere near but we tried!) without mention of the Notting Hill Carnival, a London institution in its own right. A brilliant and dazzling parade, there are sound systems throughout the neighbourhood that make it busy, noise, rambunctious and frankly, a sheer delight on the senses. It’s one of a kind experience that everyone should experience once in their lifetime – and not just for the atmosphere but for everything about it that makes it such a famous event.
