I have to admit that after trying big all weekend camping festivals like Reading Festival, I much prefer the rise of the new day festivals in London. Why? For one, it’s easier to walk about because they don’t take place on a farm in the middle of no where, instead it’s in one of London’s parks. They’re really easy to get to and from, as they are close to a tube/bus stop (no pestering your family to drive you down!). Ticket prices are generally a lot cheaper and more affordable. And finally, you don’t have to camp (hooray!) – meaning no smelly, disgusting strangers, or awkward conversations with your friends who should really make use of the communal showers.
This Jubilee weekend, despite the awful weather, I went to Field Day festival in Victoria Park, Hackney.
