FESTIVAL 101: LET’S BEGIN!April 18, 2013
Festival season is nigh! That’s right, it’s time. Time to think of freedom in muddy fields, time to feel music course through your veins, time to be united in a crowd of strangers who for just a few days are your new best friends. It’s time to laugh, cry, fly and wave goodbye to everyday reality, exploring your mind with not a care in the world. Festival season is coming people, and if you’re lucky, it will consume your summer.
If you can’t tell already, we’re kinda excited about this year’s Festival season, and for good reason too. In the next few weeks we’ll be unleashing a magical online realm crammed full of our favourite festivals, music, fashion, survival, store events, interviews, playlists and so many ticket competitions we’re almost drowning in a sweat of excitement (grim). Take our word for it, it’s gonna be HUGE. Just watch this space…
For now, let us begin with two festivals we have a total buzz-on about. They go by the name Land Of Kings (London) and Camden Crawl (Dublin), and you could be in with a chance to win tickets to the very first fests of festival season.
LAND OF KINGS – LONDON (DALSTON) – SUNDAY 5TH MAY
Dalston’s annual music and arts festival returns for a neighbourhood takeoever on Bank Holiday Sunday 5th May 2013 for a twelve hour cultural jamboree. For the fifth Land of Kings, the festival reign spreads over a day and a night, slamming the best of East London’s creativity into a spree of feverish gigs, secret feasts, loft parties, label showcases, basement discos, warehouse raves, rooftop escapes, subterranean games, sirenic speakeasies, surreal cinema and all the best bits of a field festival, slap-bang in the heart of Hackney.
Sounds intense right? Now listen up and get on down to some of the top acts that will be gracing the stage at L.O.K.
METEOR CAMDEN CRAWL- DUBLIN – 3RD -5TH MAY
