It really is a worldwide fashion now, nearly every city has it going on. Hipsters, artist communities, reused industrial spaces, massive facial hair, old fashioned bicycles, street art, archaic time consuming hobbies, lovingly brewed craft beers, reclaimed building materials… Hackney Wick has one of the best examples and they throw a very eclectic yearly festival, of course.

Rolling Stones :: Hyde Park :: July 6th, a set on Flickr.

For the past few years I’ve enjoyed the summer concerts in Hyde Park from outside the event fence, usually among a big crowd of people loving the weather and the free music from acts such as The White Stripes, Blur and Daft Punk.

Last Saturday’s show by the Rolling Stones drew the biggest crowd I’ve seen there by far. The PA was a little louder than usual and from the front gate you can see the screens. It is down the west side of the fence where the sound is best this year though, the stage is facing towards the sunset and the speakers are not far from the boundary. The crowd had such a good atmosphere and I would definitely recommend going down this coming Saturday if you want to catch a free Stones gig.
