Festival Guide: Citadel

Everything you could possibly want to know about this year's Citadel Festival...

Although Citadel has only been in our lives for the past 3 years, here at TicketWeb HQ we consider the London one-dayer a solid festival staple and can’t really imagine a Sunday in July without it. This year sees a UK festival exclusive from Tame Impala, alongside a scintillating array of talent including CHVRCHES, Leon Bridges and Fat White Family, plus loads of other wonderful distractions for all ages. Go on, we promise we won’t tell the boss why you’re sacking off alllllll the spreadsheets on Monday…..

So what’s Citadel Festival then?
Brought to you by the team that lay on the awesome Wilderness Festival alongside respected tastemakers Communion, Citadel takes place on Sunday 15 July and was hatched to give the London festival scene a taste of something different, combining stadium-slaying bands with a “galaxy of experiences and activities to discover throughout the day…including the city’s tastiest food and drink, sports, talks and debates, wellbeing, workshops, fashion boutiques and family fun, and so much more.”. 

Where’s it happening?
Gunnersbury Park, London is where it’s at! The festival has moved West this summer so please don’t end up in the wrong end of town. Here’s a handy map…
