What's the deal with… Visions Festival?
Here's everything you need to know about the Hackney one-dayer
Mon Jun 24 2013
Oh, come on. Think of the buzz, the good times, the great bands…
The crowds, the toilet queues, the bar queues, the queues to get in and out… And you need a stepladder to even see anything.
All right, grumpy. Maybe you should just head to one of London’s small, indoor music festivals this summer.
Loads of really great bands, covering everything from funk-punk to indie to hardcore. Highlights include jittery bass-slappers !!!, blissed-out electronic pop by East India Youth, the woozy and synth-soaked Still Corners, and searing shoegaze-pop band Childhood. Add in a record and vintage fair, trendy food stalls including Lucky Chip and a maximum venue capacity of 1,000 people, and you’ve got a great mini-fest rammed with good vibes.
Get the party started this festival season at Love Saves The Day and We Are FSTVL with some of the globe's best dance acts and DJs
Glastonbury and Download add the rock-factor to this year's festival season. Prepare yourself for the mosh pit
