Everything you need to know about Louis Tomlinson’s The Away From Home Festival

Louis Tomlinson is an artist who constantly gives back to his fans in any way he can, from free merch to a live stream and now a FREE one-day festival, The Away From Home Festival.

We have put together a guide with EVERYTHING you need to know about The Away From Home Festival.

What is the The Away From Home Festival?

The Away From Home Festival is a new one-day festival created and curated by Louis and his team at LTHQ. Talking about the festival Louis said “I’ve been sat on this idea for the last 12 months at least and now to see it come to life makes me very excited. Personally, playing live shows is the best part of what I do and it’s been far too long since I’ve seen my fans, so I wanted to put this festival on to say thank you for all the support and celebrate the return of live music. I’ve got a really good feeling it’s going to be a really special night. We all deserve that!”

When and where will The Away From Home Festival take place?

The festival will take place on Monday 30 August, in London, the UK at Crystal Palace Bowl, an iconic South London venue with over 60 years of live music heritage and a legacy as an outdoor performance venue stretching back over a century.

Who will be performing at the Festival?

Louis has curated an amazing lineup for the one-day event which he will of course headline. Scottish band The Snuts who recently hit No.1 on the Official Album Charts, Essex indie punk newcomers Bilk, and DJ sets from Radio1’s Jess Iszatt are all set to feature.
