If you want a unique festival experience this year, London could be the place for you. Featuring a diverse range of events from the independent ethics of Jabberwocky to the mainstream attitude of Wireless, 2014 is not all about the States.

The UK is home to some incredible, highly respected music festivals such as Isle of Wight Festival, Leeds and Reading Festival and, of course, Glastonbury - but just what do we have in store from the nation's capital? London is unquestionably the UK's most vibrant city and, when it comes to music, there's really no denying that. The rest of the world may have SXSW, Coachella, Ultra and Exit (to name but a very small few), but London has a plethora of unique local events with line-ups and atmospheres that really prove their worth - and we're here to share them with you.

Jabberwocky 2014 logoJabberwocky (August 15th-16th)
All Tomorrow's Parties present this brand new festival for 2014, co-hosted by Pitchfork and Primavera Sound and set to take place at The Excel Centre this August. For its inaugural event, Jabberwocky will see headline acts from Neutral Milk Hotel, James Blake, Darkside and Caribou, not to mention support from Kurt Vile & The Violators, Hookworms and Electric Wizard. Like many of the best festivals, it's not all about the music as Jabberwocky will be hosting some film events and, as the name suggests, there'll be plenty of art to enjoy too. Tickets are priced at £38.50 per day.

LeeFest, 2012 Live Review


There's been a lot of talk about the 'difficult 2nd album' recently. The curse that pushed the likes of The Enemy and Glasvegas back out of the revolving indie door, just as quickly as it chucked them in.

But, what about 'the difficult 2nd festival'?

The first time you go to a new festival, you have a good time - fact (unless it happens to be T4 on the Beach, argue amongst yourselves). It's not until you return to a festival, that you can truly gauge just how good it is. After calling LeeFest "the best small festival this country has to offer", I was slightly concerned ahead of my 2nd visit.

There was no need to worry. LeeFest delivered their "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?".

The car park is easily accessible, getting into the campsite takes no more than 5 minutes and once you are in, there is plenty of space. They even have nice toilets.

Anyway, now we have got our boring intro track out of the way, lets get stuck in to track 2. The Friday at LeeFest looked like everything you would expect from one of the most exciting, diverse and brave festivals around. Casiokids delivered the kind of set that they are now renowned for. Attracting a healthy crowd for a relatively early slot, some of the dancing during 'Fot I Hose' was worthy of a headline slot.
