FESTIVAL PREVIEW: Community Festival @ Finsbury Park, London, 01/07/18

The Verse’s Lynsey Downie previews Community Festival, taking place at Finsbury Park on 1st July 2018

Created by Festival Republic, famous for their creation of Reading and Leeds and Wireless Festival, comes a festival which such an incredible indie line-up, hosted in the heart of London. Community Festival is coming and, with headliner Two Door Cinema Club performing, you could easily mistake yourself for being at The Haunt on a Monday night. Other highly anticipated performances are The Vaccines, Sundara Karma and Circa Waves joining the line-up for 2018.

Following the incredible turnout of 35,000 festival goers who watched The Wombats and Catfish and the Bottleman performance last year, it’s hard to believe the festival was born at Shoreditch in 2015. Three years later, the festival graces the stage of Finsbury Park which has hosted legends such as Pearl Jam and The Rolling Stones.

It is refreshing to see a festival promoting new indie music and performances; particularly in previous years, there has been a strong sense of community as twenty-something show support for developing artists on the N4 stage, secondary stage. The solidarity shown throughout the festival, despite troubling headliners, shows that Community really embodies its name when it comes to the love of music.
