A Brief History: Back for its fourth year, Visions Festival returns to East London next month with a stellar line up! Taking place across different warehouse venues, arts spaces and churches in London Fields, Visions promotes an array of new music, as well as a host of craft beers and street food stalls.

How To Get There: Depending on which venue you’re heading to, Visions Festival is accessible from London Fields train station, or a number of buses including the 106, 55 and 277. The nearest underground station is Bethnal Green on the Central Line.

Gigslutz Top Tip: As well as trying to catch the wonderful Cate Le Bon, we’d recommend making the most of the great array of exciting, new bands and artists on offer at Visions Festival. Some of our favourites include the scuzzy hooks and hazy vocals of London-based Dream Wife, the deep growl of Gabriel Bruce and the dreamy, effervescent electronica of Let’s Eat Grandma. The incredible, all female choir Deep Throat Choir should also not be missed.

Memorable Moments: Last year, everyone’s favourite Spanish band Hinds blasted out their uptempo garage rock to a sweltering Oval Space, followed by an incredible, vibrant set from Brooklyn’s Shamir that got the whole of East London grooving together.

What We Said Last Year: Daisy particularly enjoyed the likes of Girl Band, Fat White Family and Shamir. Check out her review here.

Did You Know? This year, Visions Festival are hosting their first ever Dog Show! The show will be hosted by Jen Long and judged by the lovely The Big Moon and Marika Hackman.
