People attending Mighty Hoopla festival in London this weekend have been urged to wear wellies as heavy rain has turned the area into a 'mudslide'. A tweet posted on X on Monday evening (May 27) showed Brockwell Park, where Mighty Hoopla will be held on June 1 and June 2, looking much worse for wear.

The park isn't quite as green as many festival-goers would hope - instead it looks incredibly muddy after the City Splash festival, held on May 27. The video shows people walking carefully in trainers covered in mud, leading people on social media to urge anyone attending the festival to buy themselves some wellies before going to Mighty Hoopla this weekend.

The poster wrote: "Brockwell park today. Good luck everyone at Hoopla next week lol". Another person also posted on X: "Oh god am I gonna need wellies for Mighty Hoopla? Where do people buy festival wellies from?"

Mighty Hoopla festival is held every year in London and is known as a popular LGBTQ+ festival with some huge headliners secured every year. This year, Nelly Furtado, Jessie Ware, Rita Ora and more are taking to the stage to perform for the thousands of fans who descend on the capital.
