Dialled In returns on 22nd July 2023 with its latest offering, Dialled In: The Park – an all-day arts and music festival showcasing South Asian culture, arts and creativity. A celebration of community, it will take place across two stages in Lloyd Park, Walthamstow, and at William Morris Gallery, allowing audiences to experience Dialled In outdoors for the first time.

With its move to Lloyd Park, Dialled In: The Park will allow Dialled In to experiment with an outdoor space, and move beyond their established base of festival-goers to draw in a broader, more multi-generational audience. This will allow the festival to welcome more families, children and others from the local area, whether South Asian or not – with the aim of providing an annual touchpoint for the community, and bringing locals together across age, class, interests and demographics.

Dialled In: The Park will coincide with an exciting new exhibition at William Morris Gallery in Lloyd Park, which celebrates the work of Delhi-born, London-based fashion designer Ashish Gupta. Ashish: ‘Fall In Love And Be More Tender’, is the first fashion exhibition the Gallery has ever held, and showcases over 60 of Ashish’s playful, uplifting and subversive designs.

Dhruva Balram, co-founder of Dialled In said: “We’re elated to be back in Waltham Forest, bringing the festival to an outdoor stage. It’s due to be our most ambitious idea yet, one which we know will bring in audiences across generations while continuing to showcase the depth and breadth of South Asian creativity.”
