Time Out says
For decades now, Germany’s famous Erdinger beer have been throwing raucous Oktoberfest parties where the Weissbier flows and the oom pah bands lead raucous table dancing in huge wooden-clad beer tents.
If you can’t afford flights to Bavaria, lucky for you the beer brand is transporting its huge annual festival to London, building a massive beer tent covered in floral garlands and a traditional blue and white striped roof, smack bang in the middle of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, between the Aquatic Centre and the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
Around 3,000 beer lovers will pile in to sup on frothy pints of Erdinger Weissbier and Fischers Hell. Expert waiters and waitresses dressed in Lederhosen and Dirndls serving crowds in traditional fashion (ie carrying around 10 steins at a time). While the main stage be will boast live acts and DJ sets. There's a full funfair too, outdoor beer garden and Alpine huts transported from Germany to shelter in. Just be careful how you time your go on the waltzers. No body needs to see the return of your bratwurst.

£15 - £17 entry to the beer tent
£20 - £32 entry for reserved seating
£187.50 for a special VIP area which includes complimentary food and drink all evening in a special elevated area.
