Festivals in London this Summer: The Ultimate Guide

Who says you need to go to a grubby, mud-ridden field to enjoy a top quality festival this summer? 
 You don’t even have to step foot out of the hustle and bustle of a busy city if you don’t want to. After all, not everyone likes the idea of camping in a field for a weekend or more. If you prefer to enjoy your music and entertainment without the need for wellies and a poncho, take a look at some of the amazing festivals that our capital will be hosting over the summer. There’s plenty to look forward to, and if you book a room at the Travelodge in London, you can enjoy the rest of the city as part of your trip, too.
