Summer: the part of the year where Brits add fruit to every single drink, scroll down insta-feeds to see everyone “having more fun”, and whipping off the t-shirts the minute the sun appears from behind a cloud.

However, despite these questionable summer traits, the season also means we can do things outdoors. Introducing Seven Dials Soundtrack, a one-day music festival and free event championing London’s world class music.

The day means we’ll be bidding farewell to roof down divas and black BM posers as seven interconnecting streets between Covent Garden and Soho will become traffic free. The pop-up lawn will provide a space for boogy-ers to relax, dance, and enjoy a range of live performances at the open-air stage. For those page refreshers amongst you who are always the first to know a festival line-up, the acts will be released soon for your perusing pleasure.

To keep you refreshed and the dancing feet on the go, Hawksmoor’s pop-up cocktail bar will be on hand, and al-fresco dining from café BOKI and French wine bar and restaurant Compagnie Des Vins Surnaturals, amongst more.

End note: If you’re partial to some full-blown festival glam, you can get your sparkle on at Gipsy Shrine who will have eco-friendly glitter face-painting on offer.

Soundtrack festival will take place on 23rd June at 45 Seven Dials, WC2H 9HD
