About Hard Rock Calling Festival London

In 2006 Live Nation Entertainment and Hard Rock Café organized Hard Rock Calling Festival at Hyde Park London for the very first time. Incredible success made it talk of the town and it left many big musical events far behind. Since it is a local festival and does not require staying on site during the event so it had more audience than the big festivals like Download Festival and Reading & Lead Festival which require attendees to camp on the location. Popular bands and singers are a highlight of this festival. It not only provides a platform to famous singers but gives a chance to younger bands and new names to perform at the event from all over the world. Rock music is a trait of this festival. However the crowd is also entertained with other forms of contemporary music. Currently Hard Rock Calling Festival is one of the most popular music festivals of London.
