Performances from 36 music groups from around the world are also scheduled across five different stages.

“What we do every year is bring the whole world to London in one weekend,” said event organizer Alfredo Caxaj.

“That’s exactly what it is, a tour around the world through the music, through the incredible selection of food, and also through the international market of crafts and art from around the world.”

Caxaj says the festival is about bringing people together.

“These types of festivals truly become a venue for people to enjoy life, to get a taste of what’s going on in the whole world, but from a totally different perspective.”
