‘I AM NOT CAMPING’ – heard at least once in every friendship group!
As much as we love a festival at Late Night London, we understand the camping woes – the endless amounts of wetwipes, hand sanitiser and plastic cups needed. But seriously were do all the plastic cups go?
Day festivals can be just as fun, so here are our 6 of our fav day festival in London
14th & 15th July – Lovebox – Victoria Park (nearest tube Mile End or Cambridge Heath)
#15yearsoflove, yes that’s right, Lovebox has been around for 15 years and to celebrate such a momentous occasion with their theme 15 years of love. There are some big acts lined up, including Frank Ocean, Chase and Status and for you old school ravers Dj EZ.
16th July – Citadel - Victoria Park, Hackney (nearest tube Mile End or Cambridge Heath)
As soon as 1 finishes another one begins in Victoria park. Only in its 3rd year, Citadel is a just a baby in comparison to Lovebox.
