Viva Londres! It most definitely is the Summer to be a Londoner, from watching the honed, toned athletes in the Olympics to the Queen do her vintage thing at the Jubilee, there has been a serious amount of partying going on from us London kids. This weekend brings us Notting Hill Carnival which has been going since 1965 and one of the most vibrant street festivals in the world. With that in mind, we had a look at the top ten parties, festivals and events going on this weekend in London.
FRIDAY NIGHT: The Hydra: Ostgut Ton with Marcel Dettmann, Marcel Fengler, Surgeon, Prosumer, Nick Hoppner at Studio Spaces The boys from Berlin are over in force, if you're serious about your German techno, then you should pay homage to these boys whilst they are here and taking a break from their busy schedules gracing the turntables of Berghain and Panorama Bar! Ostgut Ton has undoubtedly proved itself as one of the most revered techno imprints of our modern generation and with a lineup as serious as this, is unmissable.
