Hire A Bus

Travelling to London's summer music festivals

You might not think it looking out of your window right now, but Summer is on its way, and you can lift those winter blues by booking a hire coach to London for your favourite summer music festival and experience great music with some fun in the sun.

There are dozens of fantastic summer music festivals and hiring a coach or minibus to transport you and your friends has never been easier. Choosing which ones to attend is the hard part, so we decided to ignore those gloomy skies and take a look at travelling to London's summer music festivals and what's in store at some of them.

Direct travel to awesome festivals in London

2023 is going to be a magical year for music festivals and with our cost-effective coach hire in London, we'll take you right to the heart of whichever one of the great concerts and music festivals you're looking to attend, dropping you as close as possible to the venue and waiting to take you home without you having to worry about stressful parking.

Lots of choices and London hosts festivals for every type of music genre and many are family-friendly, however some would be for more of an adult crowd. Here are a few of the festival stars, so you can grab your tickets and get your minibus or coach hire booked, fast!

British Summer Time, Hyde Park.

Some of the biggest names in music and across the world have graced the stages at the British Summertime Festivals, like Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Phil Collins, and Kings of Leon, to name just a few.

In 2023, once again London’s largest Royal park will host music legends in its planned six summer concerts across two weekends in June and July (with free midweek entertainment) to make for an event like no other. It's your opportunity to get to see one of the world's most iconic rock bands, Guns n Roses, and create wonderful summer festival memories.

With legendary singer Pink, Take That and “The Boss” Bruce Springsteen also confirmed, Hyde Park in London will be “Rockin” and the place to be this summer.

Travelling by hired coach means you can leave drinks, snacks and a change of clothes on the coach, so your dancing is unencumbered and you feel as free as a bird.

Wireless Festival 2023, Finsbury Park.

London's Wireless Festival is a firm favourite with UK festival-goers and has its roots firmly in hip-hop, grime and R&B-influenced sounds. The event has a longstanding reputation for representing forward-thinking artists from the UK and USA who perform to sell-out crowds of knowledgeable festival goers.

Wireless Festival has a habit of providing a platform for the freshest new talent to make a name for themselves. If you want to catch a whole lot of pop and hip-hop heavyweights in one place, this is your festival.

This year's headliners include Playboi Carti, Travis Scott, D-Block Europe and the man himself, 50 Cent.

The festival takes place from the 7th to the 9th of July in Finsbury Park and parking restrictions will be in place to protect residents' spaces all around the venue.

Make your journey easy by hiring a coach.

Wide Awake festival, Brockwell Park

The fantastic Wide Awake festival is back for its third year on May 27 2023, and once again is set to pride itself in highlighting some of the best established and up-and-coming artists from across the globe. Celebrated for their unmissable line-ups of leftfield indie, post-punk, electronica, techno, and jazz, the 2023 lineup adds names like Daniel Avery and Caroline Polachek to the billing with more headliners to be announced soon.

The festival is widely renowned as a melting pot of genres, with something for even the most eclectic musical tastes and all set in the lovely Brockwell Park. Make sure you pack your picnic hamper onto your hire coach or minibus for a fantastic festival day out.

Hampton Court Palace Festival

Many reviews written by previous attendees list London's Hampton Court Palace music festival as one of the best they have ever attended and it would be hard to get a more magical setting to dance the day and evening away than the Tudor Courtyard of a GradeI listed, 16th-century palace. Once your hire coach drops you off you can enjoy a picnic in the beautiful gardens (If the British summer weather behaves itself) before watching world-class acts perform in this stunning setting.

The Hampton Palace music festival is the kind of event you could comfortably take your mum to, with headliners like Grace Jones, The Kaiser Chiefs and Rick Astley.

It's a laid-back festival with a cool and chilled atmosphere without the frenetic pushing and shoving of other festivals. Relax with a Pimms or a glass of wine and watch legends perform.

Soul Town, Croydon Road Recreation Ground.

For the very best in Soul, Disco, Motown and Reggae in London this Summer, book a minibus and head down to Soul Town music festival. The event is back with a bang this year, offering a stunning line-up of over 65 artists performing over the weekend, plus the new refreshment areas will see over 40 street food vendors keeping you fed and watered.

It's a Soul Superstar lineup for 2023 which includes Sister Sledge with the talented vocals of Kathy Sledge, UB40, Tunde Baiyewu from the Lighthouse Family, Desmond Decker and The Aces, the Edwin Starr Band, Omar plus more acts to be announced.

It's going to be a sun-kissed (we hope) festival of summer soul with more themed spaces, more bars, more staff, more toilets and improved disabled access and viewing points to keep festival goers happy.

Immerse yourself in the wonderful soul sounds of yesteryear and today. Just lay back and enjoy or get those dancing shoes on and strut your funky stuff. Don't worry about burning out, you can sleep on your comfortable hire coach all the way home.
