With the weather heating up and the sunshades coming out it can only mean one thing, summer is rapidly approaching and lucky for us that not only means lots of BBQs in the park but also that music festivals will be on up and down the country. Read on for our festival recommendations this year.
June – Glastonbury Festival, Somerset. 26th-30th.
Glastonbury doesn’t need much of an introduction, it is the mother of all festivals and every year it has the best line-up, the best crowds and everyone has the best time. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a ticket you will be enjoying the likes of the Arctic Monkeys and Rolling Stones and if you haven’t got a ticket well join the rest of us by watching it on TV and moaning about how Mumford and Sons and Dizzee Rascal managed to blag their way onto the main stage.
Tickets: Sold out.
July – Latitude Festival, Suffolk. 18th-21st.
Now this one I am going to so if you see me, feel free to say hello. Anyways, if Glastonbury is the UK’s musical giant then Latitude is perhaps one of the best all-rounders with not only a stellar music line-up but also some top-notch arts performances ranging from comedy to dance. Latitude certainly has something for everyone and it won’t break the bank either. Kraftwerk, Foals and Bloc Party are among the main acts but I must admit that the array of lesser known acts perhaps outweigh the big contenders. Give the full line-up a peek on their website to see if you agree.
August – V Festival, Chelmsford/South Staffordshire. 17th-18th.
V Festival is a pop lover’s dreams come true with Beyonce gracing the stage this year along with a host of other mainstream acts such as Ellie Goulding and Jessie J. V festival is unique in the fact that it’s held in two locations simultaneously with acts swapping between stages each day. V Festival probably won’t suit the festival veteran but it is the perfect place to start for younger goers or festival virgins.
