The Best Festivals in London This Summer

If you’re a fan of music festivals, but are not too keen on the camping experience of it, then London is definitely the place to be to get the best of the music scene. With some of the world’s best artists at the moment performing in London all throughout the summer, there’s plenty to get dancing to! The Music Festivals throughout the city are designed for various audiences, with some dedicated to more family performances, others in the woods just outside the city, and some for the die-hard techno fans, there’s something for everyone. 

With this blog post we want to take you through  some of the top events coming up over the next few months to make sure you don’t miss out on some of your favourite performers. 

Lovebox Festival

Considered one of London’s biggest and best music festival, Lovebox packs a lot of fun into Victoria Park for a single weekend. There’ll be the likes of Frank Ocean, doing London as his first stop on his european tour, as well as a selection of DJs, live bands, and a selection of side performances such as art, dance, and afterparties.

Other artists in the lineup include Chase & Status, Solange, Jamie XX, Sampha, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, and Mac Miller.

The festival takes place July 14-15 in Victoria Park.

Citadel Festival

This one-day Sunday festival is designed to be a chilled one. Keeping a very relaxed vibe, the line-up includes the likes of Bonobo, Foals, soulman Michael Kiwanuka and a queen of folk Margaret Glaspy. 

Alongside the music there will be plenty of artistic distractions and entertainment, as well as a great selection of food and drink options. Don’t let Sundays be exhausting, but enjoy this very chilled out festival in Victoria Park.

This festival takes place on the 16th July.

Eastern Electrics

Having been mainly based in Hertfordshire for the past 3 years, Eastern Electrics is coming to Central London, and bringing its full ten stages and amazing line up with it. It’ll be taking place in Morden Park (south London), and is more for the party-hungry types. If you want to take a break from busting a move on the dance floor, there’ll be plenty of food, fairground rides, and a chill-out zone.

The festival takes place on the 5th August.

Sunfall

This is a one-day festival organised by one of the biggest nightlife organisers in London. They are the team behind Phonox, The Nest, and XOYO – as well as a variety of festivals around the world. The main day includes The Black Madonna, Roy Ayers, HAAi, and Princess Nokia in its lineup, but there will also be eight crazy afterparties across South London which you won’t need an extra ticket for!

If you’re looking for one festival to consider this year, it might be this one. The festival takes place on the 12th August.

South West Four

The well renowned SW4 festival is when Clapham Common comes to life for the bank holiday. There’ll be plenty of big hits, club anthems, and arms in the air for this 2 day festival. It’ll be like taking a holiday to Ibiza, with plenty of house, electro, techno, and EDM music dusted with a selection of other genres. There’ll be the likes of Pendulum, Sigma, Duke Dumont and others during this festival, and it is well worth it.

The festival takes place on 26-27th August.
