There are a number of music festivals that take place in London, but few can draw in the big guns quite like British Summer Time. Held in Hyde Park over two weekends, this festival sees headliners from a wide variety of genres attracting hundreds of thousands of revellers every year.

All Points East is another eclectic festival that takes over Victoria Park for ten days, drawing in bands from the world of rock, pop and dance, while Wireless Festival, the UK’s biggest urban music festival, takes place annually in Finsbury Park.

Brixton Disco Festival proves disco never died, taking place across the Ritzy, the Black Cultural Archives, the Prince of Wales and Electric Brixton – any excuse to dust off your hot pants and throw some shapes.

Alternatively, try out the London Design Festival, a celebration of the city’s world class design industry that pulled in nearly 600,000 visitors from over 75 countries in 2018. Taking place in September, the event takes over chunks of the city and incorporates numerous tradeshows, not to mention the incredible Landmark Projects it produces.

One of the most vibrant colour pops of activity each year in the capital, unleash your inner nerd and show off your creative flair by dressing as your favourite fictional character at London Comic Con. Excel London is overrun with comic book, TV and film and gaming culture, where you can attend talks, buy merchandise and mingle with likeminded Londoners. Meanwhile, Fanfest Events run events like Heroes and Villains, where you can try bungee jumping and archery, along with the zombie-themed Walker Stalker in the capital.

What food and drink festivals are taking place in London?

No matter the time of year, London’s love affair with the finest food and drink means there are always festivals in London going on. Eat & Drink Festival is a travelling event that descends on The Olympia, where you can indulge in demonstrations, cookery schools, artisan stalls and talks by some of the best chefs cooking today.
