So you’re not at Glastonbury? Neither are we. But don’t despair – we’re full of cool weekend ideas that are high on fun, low on mudMore
ART: Station To Station: A 30-Day Happening
Ah, we love a ‘happening’. Especially this ‘living exhibition’ by over 100 international artists, musicians, dancers, designers and videographers. Taking over The Barbican for – you guessed it – 30 days, this will mean residencies, one-off performances, interactive displays, a rainbow smoke installation and, um, a special cactus omelette. Because you can’t have a happening without a special cactus omelette.
June 27-July 26; free
Barbican Centre, Silk St, London EC2Y 8DS
POP-UP: Dirty Laundry
It's not often that our idea of fun involves the word 'laundry', but then it's not often washing machines make Campari cocktails, liquitabs are made from vodka jelly and you can feast on pizza and Italian aperitivo during your spin cycle. This Fitzrovia laundromat-themed pop-up does it all – amid kitsch-cool Americana to boot. Plus, hostess Signorina Bubbles will be airing your dirty confessions by printing them on T-shirts, leaving your conscience whiter than white. Which you just don't get from your average Daz Challenge.
Until 27 June; from £5
