Retro Future Festival is quickly shaping up to be one of London’s biggest annual music events. If you happen to be in the city this summer, this is one evening you don’t want to miss. Especially if you’re a fan of Synthwave (the term for electronic music in the style of the 1980s), which will be one of the main attractions. There will also be a retro gaming lounge, and merchandise will be on sale in abundance.
Once again, Retro City Festival 2019 is organized by William Holder, Simon Redmile, and filmmaker James Secker, who directed last year’s acclaimed action horror short The Summoner (review).
