We went along to Kaleidoscope Festival 2022 the one day festival at Alexandra Palace that is family friendly and promises lots of fun for all.

We found the layout of Kaleidoscope Festival very easy to navigate, loads of help was available and we never felt lost. There was a lot to see, with a dance stage for DJ’s, comedy, a cabaret dungeon as well as the main stage

The choice of food was huge but also very expensive. £11 for a burger, no chips, was eye watering! The great bonus was that water was free, with water stations available to fill up your water bottles. There were a lot of bars for drink but they stood largely unused as the majority of people there were older and wiser than the festivals I remember from my youth!

I would say we found some great nuggets to enjoy at Kaleidoscope Festival, Craig Charles DJ set was fantastic, definitely a favourite and started the party! The stand up comedy was very good, though take your kids at your peril (every bad word was used and was very explicit in places. The Charlotte Church pop music experience was not for us. It was good for the younger kids however, and Rodigan at the main stage had the crowd jumping.

The Happy Mondays were the highlight for me -and my son just about knew about them! Seeing the Happy Mondays on stage made me feel strangely nostalgic for the 90’s, indeed the whole festival felt like a step back in time 30 years.

There were games and fun areas for families all down the length of the hill and it really was an inclusive fesitival, though the music mostly was catered towards the oldies.

The atmosphere at Kaleidoscope Festival was relaxed and chill. We avoided the front and stayed at the edges when the Main acts were on, but the view was so good on the hill we didn’t need to join the mosh pit.

It was a time warp of music, expensive burgers and garden games, all with the gorgeous view of London from Alexandra Palace.
