This summer sees Wayne Hemingway’s Vintage Festival come to London for three days, and we have kindly been given a free pair of tickets to give to one lucky reader for the opening day’s festivities.
This year’s event, which will take place on the bank of the River Thames at London’s Southbank Centre from Friday 29 to Sunday July 31, follows the success of last year’s unique festival concept, and will see the iconic Royal Festival Hall transformed into multiple themed venues. Here revellers can celebrate the art, design, dance, fashion and music from the 1920s to the 1980s, and as well as a number of uniquely themed club spaces, guests will be able to peruse vintage clothing stalls, watch catwalk shows, get vintage makeovers, and indulge themselves in all manner of food and cocktails inspired by these eras.
By far the most exciting element of the festival as far as Juno Plus is concerned, however, is what is described as “the greatest line-up of British DJs ever assembled”. With a warehouse and studio space, each curated by Greg Wilson (who will be DJing himself) and Jack Hemingway, the aim is to bring together the best in 80s rave and 70s disco culture. With the likes of London’s favourite luddite Andrew Weatherall (pictured above), A Guy Called Gerald and Ashley Beedle, as well as contemporary party titans Disco Bloodbath and Horse Meat Disco, it seems hard to argue with this statement. In addition to this, the festival will offer a further 11 spaces offering every conceivable musical genre from the 20s to the 80s with over 70 live performances.
We have a pair of tickets to offer for the first day festival, and to be in with a chance of winning, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and answer this question: What is your favourite decade and why? The competition will close at 2pm on Tuesday July 26, and notified via email shortly after.
Please note: the tickets are only valid for the first day (Friday, July 29) of the festival.
