Experiencing London’s Music Festivals and Concerts in June and July

Experiencing London
They are always crowded with joggers, lovers, students and picnic fans, but also with business man in their lunch break and animals of every kind. You may be able to see baby ducks (ducklings), geese (goslings) and swans (cygnets) whilst roses are at their best. Take the time, while visiting this surprising city, to spend some time in one of the most famous parks like the central Hyde park, Green Park, St James Park, Kew Gardens etc. at least for a picnic. There are free concerts in many of the larger parks: check your local park for information about their events. Another good point is that in June days are very long, and temperatures are often pleasantly warm. It is a good time to go out and visit places, without the crowds of July and August. Here we have listed for all pop, rock, R&B, Soul, punk whatever music lovers some of the hottest Music Festivals in London!! The Rise in Finsbury Park, London is a completely free music festival. That’s a good new! The aim of this festival is to celebrate the multiculturalism within the UK and the integration of so many diverse cultures against racism. In fact, Rise’s slogan is “London united against racism” For about three weeks in June and July, you will be able to enjoy the many events of the City of London Festival. All venues are in central London known as “the City”. They organize music and dance events and the festival includes free lunchtime concerts in the City’s churches or squares. For evening concerts in a very suggestive location outside the Tower of London take note of the Tower Music Festival dates: Thu 26 Jun -Sat 12 Jul, although they still have to be confirmed. For all details visit the complete programme at towermusicfestival.co.uk Probably one of the greatest and internationally renown Rock Music Festivals is the annual Music Wireless Festival in London’s Hyde Park. This four-day intense festival, in the middle of London has established itself as a major live music event, attracting crowds of over 20,000 every day to Hyde Park! The nice thing is that you can just dip in when you want, buy a ticket for the days you like and go home to your own bed. It’s not a camping festival with all its ups and downs so you won’t be find yourself in the middle of fans in costumes, vendors and stalls, tee-pees, organic cafes and strange entertainments. There’s definitely less of a community feel, but this year programme includes Fatboy Slim, Jay-Z, Mark Ronson, Hot Chip, Roisin Murphy, Underworld, Ben Harper , Counting Crows and many more!!!
