General

Mighty Hoopla is London’s ultimate pop extravaganza, descending on the capital for a day of pop-tastic music, fun and games in the summer sun.

Last year we greeted 20,000 colourful festival goers at Brockwell park and celebrated a day of love, freedom and Pop music, with sets from TLC, Lily Allen and Melanie C, alongside a whole host of club nights including, The Glory, Bongo’s Bingo and Massaoke; all hosting their own mini-parties at the festival.

This year Mighty Hoopla returns to Brockwell Park and promises to be the ultimate celebration of all things pop, sparky and fun!
