Over the span of two weeks, 10 event days, 6 Headline shows and a star-studded array of acts, the UK festival season began in London for All Points East. The 12,000 daily capacity event welcomed some fantastic acts such as The Strokes, Bon Iver, James Blake, Danny Brown and even a landmark return set from The Chemical Brothers.

Hosted in Victoria Park (which was once also home to Field Day & Lovebox) the festivities saw sponsored stages from Jägermeister and RayBan. American Express cardholders were also given the VIP treatment, having exclusive access to a separate area and being entitled to free bottles of water.

A special mention must also go to the welfare team who were present throughout the entire 10 days, ensuring that assistance was given to those in need and running a model example of how to run a festival lost property operation!

D-Day 75th Anniversary

Southsea Common, Portsmouth
5th – 9th June

D-Day 75th Review

Although not a UK festival per-say, certainly to be considered noteworthy. Moving commemorations were held in Portsmouth for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. As the launching point for many of the vessels in 1944, the UK port saw mobilisations of 4,000 military personnel, Royal Naval ships and RAF Aircrafts. The nation stood still with 300 Veterans remembering and paying respects to their brothers in arms.

Furthermore, the Royal Family were in attendance for the start of the remembrance week. Portsmouth City Council hosted events throughout the commencing week but it was the opening ceremony on June 6th that saw attendance from the Royal Family and national media attention.

Gottwood Festival

Carreglywd Estate, Wales
6th – 10th June

Gottwood Festival Review

Celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year, the unique gem that is Gottwood festival may shape up to be one of the best small to medium UK festivals of the summer! The community and family-like atmosphere have been celebrated by those in attendance to the festival. The 4-day event takes place on the picturesque Carreglwyd Estate, which is actually a family owned residence to one of the directors.

A tasteful spectrum of dance music was curated for the event, with representation from dBridge, Lenzman, Craig Richards, Seth Troxler and Crazy P performing a Live set amongst many other heavyweights. It’s pipped as a truly unique affair that you really have to experience once to appreciate.

Mighty Hoopla

Brockwell Park, London
8th June

Brockwell Park, London, hosted the fabulous Mighty Hoopla. A free-spirited UK festival where all were welcome to celebrate the pop stars and radio titans of yesterday. Headline acts such as the exquisite Chaka Khan graced the main stage, as well as Artful dodger for a healthy dose of nostalgic garage vibes.

Lost legends such as George Michael and Prince were commemorated with DJ sets of their music being enjoyed in packed club-like stages. The one-day affair brought together a plethora of personalities and quirks and was a massive hit with all in attendance.

Cross the Tracks Review

The new kid on the UK festivals block certainly made a big impression. The eclectic blend of soul, jazz and funky dance music acts, certainly united groove seekers of all ages. The main stage saw the likes of Jazz/Trap virtuoso Masego performing a live set that really must be seen to be believed. The sublime Jordan Rakai also graced the mainstage. The Sunday was fittingly brought to a climax with Chaka Khan, performing a palette of soul hits.

Other stages saw an adept range of DJ’s and live acts having strong showings with soulful mashups and crowd favourite funk jams. The slick House music of PIFF records, as well as a show-stealing set from up and comers J Rust and Lavan.

TLC Welfare & Loudsound

At NotLost we’re lucky enough to work with fantastic welfare teams (TLC welfare and Loudsound) for All Points East, X the Tracks and Mighty Hoopla festivals. Their smart and effective implementation of our lost property platform has allowed us combined to return 100’s of items on behalf of the event. Their efforts can’t be appreciated enough, so a huge thank you to them!

Here are a few highlights from the people we’ve been able to help so far…
