Preview: Citadel Festival 2017


Citadel Festival is for those who don’t have the time to travel and queue for hours. For music lovers who can’t face overnight camping. For festival goers who don’t want to put up with knee-deep mud.

Taking place deep in the heart of London, Citadel combines live music and art with drinking and dining for a truly unique inner-city experience. Its third annual outing sees co-headliners in the shape of Foals, a UK festival exclusive, and Bonobo, touring his recently-released fifth album. The two top a bill of further musical talent such as Laura Marling, Michael Kiwanuka and A Blaze of Feather, and plenty more over five stages.

Elsewhere attendees are encouraged to get physical in the ‘fun and fitness’ area or creative in the ‘arts and ideas’ part of the festival. If relaxation is more your thing then enjoy delectable drinks and London’s finest street food across the site. Citadel is billed as not just another music festival but ‘the ultimate summer Sunday’, and its varied line-up is testament to that.

Citadel Festival is for those who like music, but also food, drink, sports, talks and debates, wellbeing, workshops, fashion boutiques and family fun. Isn’t that all of us?

Citadel takes place on Sunday 16th July 2017 in Victoria Park, London. Tickets are available here.
