August is a time of many melas (or ‘gatherings’) in London, but the absolute blockbuster is ‘The London Mela powered by Let's Go Southall’, a music and arts festival of South Asian culture that’s been going strong in Southall for almost 17 years. Canadian artist Raghav is headlining with a whole lot of fusion (pop, reggae and R&B), along with the four independent musicians that make up The Great British Desi Collaboration. Bhangra beats will be shaking up Southall Park for two days. On the sidelines, there’ll be a climbing wall, cricket simulator and a full food market. Stick around for the fireworks display above the main stage on Sunday.
