Wednesday 20 July 2011
The Vintage Festival, the UK’s best new festival, will transform The Royal Festival Hall into a multi-venue vintage playground for London’s most uplifting and stylish party this summer - and The Independent has a pair of tickets for the whole weekend - worth £450 - to give away!
It's on at London's famous South Bank from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 July. There's a staggering amount of stuff to get up to - the festival celebrates seven decades of British cool, covering music, dance, fashion, food, art, design and film from the 1920s to the 1980s.
With a music line-up spanning eight decade-specific nightclubs and three daily revue shows featuring unique performances by soul legend Percy Sledge, electronic pioneers Alan Wilder (Depeche Mode) and Thomas Dolby and 60s icon Sandie Shaw, alongside 150 DJs including Norman Jay, Andrew Weatherall, Greg Wilson, Craig Charles and A Guy Called Gerald, The Vintage Festival will leave no stone unturned in its quest for nostalgia.
The huge Vintage Marketplace features the finest vintage couture labels, prêt a porter, street style, accessories, mid-century modern homewares, records and up-cycled ephemera, while the fully functioning pop-up ‘High Street’ will brim with renowned brands from the past and present, including a vintage hair and beauty salon by Benefit, retail outlets from Cath Kidston and the return of iconic 50s textile and dress makers Horrockses.
