Holi is a famous Indian festival whereby people from all walks of life come together to daub each other in various coloured powders and enjoy live music, performance and much more.
However, you do not need to go half way around the world to enjoy a colourful day out, as Wembley Park will be hosting its very own Holi One festival where you and your friends can come and be part of this amazing celebration of colour.
The Holi One festival is based on, but not associated with the Indian Holi festival and it is in no way a religious event. It is, however, an opportunity to release your inner child and throw different coloured powders at friends and strangers.
One thing is for certain - you will not leave the festival looking the same as you arrived. Most revellers wear white attire as it allows the various colours to shine. Whatever colour you decide to wear, you should not mind it getting a little discoloured.
That being said, Holi One powder is completely water-soluble so you need not worry about your clothes being permanently discoloured. It is also completely safe for both yourself and the environment as well.
The powder is available in six colours, which are Pink Bikini, Green Planet, Blue Lagoon, Yellow Sunrise, Juicy Orange and Violet Secret. A countdown will take place on the hour every hour to alert partygoers when to release their powder and fill the air with the colours of the rainbow.
With music, performance art and much more on the menu, the event is a great day out for couples or for groups of friends who want to let their hair down and have some messy fun in the London sun.
Among the performing artists taking part are dance music star Mauro Pierotti, Russian electronic music duo Hard Rock Sofa and Panjabi MC, who had a worldwide hit with Mundian To Back Ke some years ago.
In previous years, the event was held at Battersea Power Station, however, this year the event organisers have decided that Wembley Park is a more fitting setting.
