Lovebox festival, formed by DJs Groove Armada, has been bringing some of the most eclectic mix of acts to London for over a decade. After welcoming Frank Ocean, Jamie XX and Solange to headline their biggest year to date in 2017, Lovebox has relocated to Brockwell Park, near Brixton. It’s a huge move for the festival, and much like Field Day, guardians of Brockwell park have launched a petition to pull the plug on the festival. However, all being well, Lovebox will remain an institution for London’s music fans in 2018 and prove to be a must-attend event this summer.

Citadel is one of the newest names on London’s summer festival lineup, having launched in 2015, and finds a middle ground between boutique and mainstream events. There’s an alternative, but accessible feel to past lineups with likes of Foals, Laura Marling, Ben Howard and Bombay Bicycle Club headlining Citadel over the last few years. We’re still waiting for the first line-up announcement for this year’s event. However, the festival is in the process of moving from Victoria Park to south east London’s Brockwell Park this summer and organisers will be looking to see in the new surroundings in style.

The Cure, Michael Buble, Eric Clapton, Bruno Mars and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters are all performing in Hyde Park as part of British Summer Time this July, which promises to be the biggest series of shows the capital has on offer this year. Even better, each headliner is backed by a fantastic roster of support acts, with the likes of Interpol, Santana and Goldfrapp also performing across the course of the festival series.

Field Day first came to Victoria Park ten years ago, and quickly developed a reputation for being a great celebration of alternative music in London. \r\rElectronica royalty Aphex Twin performed alongside King Gizzard & the Lizzard Wizard and Run The Jewels at the festival in 2017, and 2018 could prove to be the biggest year yet for the festival. However, the festival is moving to Brockwell Park this year, and the change of location has stirred up controversy. Guardians of Brockwell park have launched a petition to pull the plug on the festival, which could potentially prove a problem for festival organisers. However, Field Day has been a major London event for over a decade, and almost certainly will be a big player for years to come.

We Are FSTVL celebrating its sixth year in 2018, and offers up one of the strongest dance, bass and grime offerings of the summer. It’s Upminster location means it’s a little out of town, but well worth travelling to for fans of dance, bass and grime.\r\rDJs Charlie Sloth, Andy C, Carl Cox, DJ Ez, Eric Prydz and Marco Carola are all performing this year, but while the main stage is a great draw, the house tent also puts on great acts during the day.

One of the blockbuster London events of the summer comes in the form of Finsbury Park’s Wireless Festival, which opens its doors for the weekend of July 6-8. Stormzy will headline this year's event, alongside J Cole and DJ Khaled. The festival is great chance to see some of the biggest acts in dance, rock and pop in north London this summer, even if the male-dominated lineup caused a backlash on social media after being announced. Weekend tickets come in at £160, but individual day tickets begin at £55.
