High Voltage was a music festival, held twice in Victoria Park, London. The event hosted artists from various strands of rock music, including classic rock, progressive rock, and heavy metal. The first festival was held on the 24 and 25 July 2010.[1] The second took place on the 23 and 24 July 2011.[2] The festival was not held in 2012 to avoid clashing with the London Olympics, and it did not return in 2013.
