London’s most spectacular free Festival

This June it will take you to some incredible places. Experience the intense emotion of an inspirational Medal Ceremony in Greenwich, be transported to Buenos Aires with passionate overhead Tango at Canary Wharf, witness an epic Chinese landscape painting coming alive at The O2, be swept up in the sweat and adrenalin of a theatrical track event at the National Maritime Museum or even get swallowed by a giant French caterpillar in Woolwich!

GDIF is all about pushing outdoor arts to new heights and this year is no exception. We’re proud to be commissioning a groundbreaking programme of exciting new events created through collaboration between sport and the arts. Drawing on the inspiration and vision of Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games, the Festival is bringing sport and arts closer together by fusing South Asian dance with soccer, marathon running with music and swimming with sway pole choreography.

This year’s Festival is bigger than ever and, in a new move, some performances have been scheduled over a number of days to enable you to take in as many as possible.

Now read on to start planning your journey around our stunning festival destinations. We look forward to welcoming you at the best festival in London and possibly one of the best in the world !”*
