New to 2014, The Jabberwocky Festival is a two-days arts, film, and music event that is coming to ExCel London on the 15th & 16th of August. It is a chance to see bands and artists that are rarely seen at other UK events, and with no sound restrictions, the speakers will be pumping hard. Tickets are £35 (plus transaction fees) for one day or £60 for the whole weekend.
If you are travelling from outside London, or simply don't want to take the tugley tube twice, then you can also book a hotel package at Ace Hotel. This will include a two-night stay with breakfast, a weekend ticket to the festival, and a goody bag with exclusive Jabberwocky merchandise (who knows, you might get a vorpal sword), and passes to the After Parties and Frabjous Sunday.
On Friday and Saturday night there will be an after party held at Shapes in Hackney Wick between 11pm-6pm. It is free to anyone who has a Jabberwocky wristband (received on entrance to the festival), and will showcase DJs and artists from the festival in a more intimate setting.
Then on Sunday the Ace Hotel will be holding Jabberwocky related music. Oh Frabjous Day.
There are dozens of performers, but the headline act is James Blake, whose electronic indie won him the Mercury Prize last year.
