  • Category: Art & Culture
  • Dates: Saturday, 10 August 2013 to Sunday, 11 August 2013

The Holi Festival of Colours is on a mission - to spread a colourful message across Europe in the form of this traditional Indian extravaganza.

From August 10th to the 11th, people are invited to Battersea Power Station and given packets of dye and water with which to paint the surrounding area - and themselves - in as many lurid hues as they can.

Furthermore, with a musical lineup that includes international talent such as Oliver Koletzki of Berlin, Juan Sanchez of Amsterdam and Bombay Boogie Soundsystem of India, it's an event that promises to celebrate the diversity and enthusiasm of London's wonderful population.

Tickets are priced at £29.99 although a limited supply of Early Bird tickets are available via the website. All bags of dye must be purchased at the venue. Needless to say, it is advisable to wear old clothes.

Grab a three nights for the price of two offer at The 41 Hotel if you're planning on enjoying the entire festival before going home.
