We're a city that's lucky enough to have world-class festivals just a tube ride away. After a long day of drinking, dancing and debauchery, there really is nothing better than going home to a nice hot shower and your own bed. Haha, who are we kidding?

This year, London's festivals are pulling it out of the bag with headliners like legendary DJ Aphex Twin, iconic indie rockers The Strokes, rap juggernaut 50 Cent and many, many more. From underground electronic movements to massive international bands, these events are selling out fast. So if you’ve yet to secure a spot, get off your arse and buy a ticket.
