The time is almost here for one of the best events of the summer, none other than Holi Festival Of Colours. Taking place in London Wembley Park on Saturday 13th August. With a new and exciting venue a unique and exceptional feel to this annual occurrence will be enhanced as there will be an abundance of room to fit the large crowd anticipated.  The idea was conceived after creator Jasper Hellmann’s visit to North-Indian Delhi back in 2011 where the Holi Festival takes place on the day of the full moon of the Phaluga month and is one of the most famous Hindu celebrations for the victory of the good over the bad and the beginning of the spring.  This allowed him the opportunity to experience a real holy celebration and bring the experience back to Europe with support from Max Riedel and Maxim Derenko. The first Holi Festival was held in Berlin yielding great success. With Festivals taking place all over the world from Sweden to Kenya the Holi Festival of Colours in London looks set to be the best yet.

With a string of top DJs to keep that party feeling going, an infectiously happy atmosphere and crowd as well as all necessary conveniences this is unquestionably the place to be. Bags of colour are purchased upon arrival and it is essential that certified bags of colour only are purchased from the festival as other products may be harmful to the environment or the health of all party goers.  Holi Festival will  kick off at twelve however from three pm there is a countdown every hour on the hour in which the powder is to be thrown into the air with the last count down being at Nine Fifty pm. With no dress code so to speak it is however best to wear white as this highlights the effects of the paints and increases the visibility. With this celebration of  freedom encouraging people to paint themselves with a multitude of different colours as well as throwing it into the air it is done in thought that on that day all castes of the Indian Caste-system are out of action meaning on that day all people are considered as equal.  For a day consisting of fun, friends,  music, food and drinks then this blissful day can only be positively enhanced by the  added paint factor.   If Holi Festival is not already firmly placed in your diary then I would definitely recommend acquiring a ticket (see below for link to tickets still available) as this is not one to be missed………..
