The KOL SOCIAL NETWORK SUMMER FESTIVAL PARTY 2019

The KOL Social is excited to be partnered once again to the mayor of London’s#LondonIsOpen campaign to bring you The KOL Social Summer Festival Party. Guests will have the opportunity to mingle with celebrities, industry executives, artists and influencers all in one day to the backdrop of exciting showcases up and coming artists and DJs from the UK and abroad. What's more, there will be fashions shows and the opportunity to purchase from independent fashion and labels. (Want to exhibit? Contact us - limited stands!) #LondonIsOpen is a major campaign – launched by the Mayor, Sadiq Khan – to show that London is united and open for business, and to the world, following the EU referendum. It shows the world that London remains entrepreneurial, international and full of creativity and possibility.
