In the summer of 2021 LIFT presented a season of outdoor, un-ticketed performance: LIFT LOVES LONDON.

Taking place in parks and public squares across the capital city, and online, and in the context of a global pandemic, the season aimed to give local audiences access to international artists, reinvigorating their connection with the city and each other.

"The pandemic meant we cancelled our 2020 festival, which was meant to be my first as LIFT’s artistic director. So, on a personal note, realising these engaging projects by such leading artists is extremely gratifying. The last year has taught us a lot at LIFT, and we’ve experimented with new ways of collaboration – elements audiences can revel in this year and in our 2022 festival."
— Kris Nelson, Artistic Director and CEO, LIFT
