Last tickets remaining for Lakota's Summer of Love festival

Last tickets remaining for Lakota's Summer of Love festival

Posted on: 21 Jul 2021

The Stokes Croft venue are taking over a secret location next weekend for their first full-scale event since March 2020.


Tickets are running seriously low for Summer of Love, an ambitious two-day festival set to take over a secret location in Bristol on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 July.


Organised by the Lakota team, the event is going ahead in compliance with the latest government coronavirus guidance, which will see all events and venues nationwide reopen with no restrictions from Monday 19 July.


A handful of remaining tickets for the festival - which include a shuttle bus to and from the as-yet-unannounced venue - are available now and can be found here.



Having been closed for much of the last 18 months, and restricted to socially-distanced events between lockdowns, Lakota have set to work on one of their biggest-ever events to celebrate the return of the rave.


Scheduled for the first Saturday that 'proper' parties can take place post-lockdown in line with government guidance, the Summer of Love will pay tribute to an iconic era of dance music, showcasing some of the UK's top DJing talent.


Saturday 24 July, the first of two days of the festival, will see celebrated selectors Eats Everything and Sam Devine top an all-star lineup that also features an array of familiar Bristol faces, including Ngaio, Burno and the Oowee Soundsystem.


Sunday's bass-driven lineup, topped by UK frontrunner Wilkinson, will combine huge DJ sets with some eagerly-anticipated live performances from Emz, Jay0117 and Dread MC among others.



Although the government have indicated that COVID test passes are not a requirement for nightlife venues from 19 July onwards, Lakota have announced that they will check the COVID status of all their attendees upon entry.


Ticket holders to the Summer of Love festival will be required to present EITHER a negative COVID test from the past 24 hours or proof they have received both of their vaccinations.


Lateral flow tests can be ordered for FREE here, while the NHS COVID Pass (proof of vaccination) can be accessed through the NHS app.
