London Music Festival Guide

If you’re staying with us over the summer (lucky you), we have put together a list of music festivals for all tastes within easy reach of Templeton Place and The Rosebery.

British Summer Time

Held on the first two weekends of July in Hyde Park. Lineups include Take That, Florence and the Machine, Stevie Wonder and Mumford and Sons! Definitely not one to miss!

Summer Series at Somerset House

Their spectacular open air music event runs from 7th – 17th July, let’s just hope the weather holds out! Headliners include Laura Mvula, James Morrison and many up-coming artists tipped for success. The venue is one of London’s most iconic landmarks and is well worth a visit on a balmy London evening!

Wireless 

The most talked about London festival has to be Wireless in Finsbury Park from the 8th – 10th July. If you’re into commercial mainstream artists. This festival is the one to go to, the lineup includes Calvin Harris, Boy Better Know, Jess Glynne, Chase and Status and J Cole.

Lovebox

Lovebox is more underground and urban appealing to a younger crowd, but as with all London festivals everyone is welcome. You can expect to see the likes of Major Lazer, Katy B, Diplo and Kano performing this year. If this is your thing, head to Victoria Park between 15th – 16th July.

Madness Presents House of Common

No one can resist a bit of Madness! They’ll be playing all their legendary hits on Bank Holiday Monday the 29th August at Clapham Common. Supported by Mike Skinner, Reggae Roast DJ’s, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry to name a few… This is not to be missed.

The East London Fringe Festival

New to the festival scene and very reasonably priced in comparison to its peers. This festival is spread across 6 different venues over 4 weeks, 9th – 31st July. As well as music and comedy, this festival hosts a pop-up cinema, a garden party and many more delights!
