Summer is coming. What with the wonderful day we have had today along with the forecast for the rest of the week, we at Dakota are loving it! We always love to get active and go outside and enjoy the sun so we are planning to kick off the summer with drinks, food, music and fun as London’s biggest sports and music festival returns to Richmond this June. Summer Social, now in its seventh year, is returning to Richmond Athletic Grounds on June 3 and marks the start of the summer with a wide range of sports and live music.

This unique event will see more than 2,000 players battle it out across six sports whilst live DJ’s blast out tunes to a huge crowd from 10am to midnight. Rob Westworth, co-founder of Summer Social, said: “This year’s Summer Social is set to be our biggest yet. “Our unique blend of high-level sport and high-octane live music has become a must-attend fixture for all.”

Select Radio will be hosting the desperados main stage as DJ Joshua Roberts and the Collyer Twins spin the decks and athletes relax in the Red Bull recovery zone. Visitors will also be treated to a Prosecco rooftop terrace hosted by dating app Bumble and a photo booth, giant adult ball pool and bar provided by social app Huggle.

The British Lions & UEFA Champions League final will also be featured on a big screen for festival-goers to watch whilst feasting on street food brought by some of London’s top vendors including Memphis-style BBQ restaurant and bar Porky’s.
