Holi Festival of Colours

Background

Holi Festival of Colours began in 2012 in Berlin, Dresden, Hannover and Munich. A never before seen collective feeling of euphoria and togetherness spread as a colourful cloud across Germany in the summer of 2012. The First ever Holi Festival Of Colours in Europe was held in Berlin and helped create an indescribable atmosphere on an unforgettable day. The Facebook community began to grow, the media interest was enormous and the spirit of the Festival was carried through Germany and grew in to the rest of Europe from there.

The Fair have produced colour festivals for 3 years and were approached to deliver Holi Festival of Colours’ London show at Wembley this year.

“After hearing about The Fair’s previous experience with colour festivals, we approached them to produce this year’s Holi Festival of Colours’ London show. From our first conversations with the team we knew that we were in safe hands, their experience of this type of show plus their overall festival production knowledge ensured that our event was a real success. We have had so much positive feedback from the show – Nick and the team were great to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them”.
