About

Kaleidoscope Festival is London’s highest festival, set atop a hill within 196 acres of parkland offering the best panoramic views across the city, and inside North London’s iconic Alexandra Palace and basements.

As the largest independent music venue in London, Ally Pally has played host to some memorable moments in musical history; from the swinging 60’s and the height of the summer of love, to the punk movement of the 70’S, Britpop in the 90’s to hip hop and more recently grime. The roll call of performers including The Rolling Stones, Jay Z and Florence & the Machine who have graced the Palace makes one hell of a hall of fame. Our team that have worked with these artists now turn to Kaleidoscope Festival 2020 to write a new chapter in the exciting history of Alexandra Palace.

Featuring huge live performances, mesmerising sunset DJ sets, punchy stand-up comedy and immersive theatre, as well as entertainment for all the family, Kaleidoscope Festival 2020 is set to create a summer’s day in London like no other.

“The roadside posters on the journey here promised a “kaleidoscopic voyage through music and the arts”, and as the sun dips below the horizon and the last confetti hits the grass, that’s exactly what we get.”
