DANCE music fans braved the rain as Victoria Park took on the heavyweights for a new festival this weekend.

Thousands of welly boot wearing party-goers watched acts such as Goldfrapp, David Guetta and Calvin Harris at the inaugural LED (London Electronic Dance) Festival on Friday and Saturday (August 27 and 28).

East London’s home grown Professor Green, who has just released a single with pop princess Lily Allen, and recently reformed Leftfield were also on the weekend’s bill - competing with Liverpool’s clubbing calendar highlight Creamfields, the Reading and Leeds Festival and Notting Hill Carnival.
