Cream, Goldenvoice and Loudsound have joined forces to create what is hoped to become one of London’s most exciting and new outdoor electronic dance festivals. The inaugural London Electronic Dance (L.E.D.) festival, held on the August Bank Holiday weekend, kicked off on Friday with French house superstar DJ David Guetta headlining. Despite competing with well established Bank Holiday favourites Notting Hill Carnival, SW4 and Reading and Leeds festivals, thousands of loyal dance enthusiasts, not put off by various cancellations and persistent English summer showers, flocked to Victoria Park yesterday for day two.

Friendly Fires battled through the elements and struggled with sound issues to deliver an energetic and enjoyable set as electro duo Goldfrapp wowed fans with an enigmatic stage performance and Annie Mac delivered a solid base-line infused DJ slot.  The festival finished off with some 90′s nostalgia from a typically trippy Aphex Twin and South London house legends Leftfield performing their first London show in ten years.
