Bestival is a 4 day festival with some top dance music and an all round funky circus vibe. With a variety of music, circus acts and confetti, Bestival is not all about the music. Taking place a month earlier than usual this could be the biggest festival in the South West this year with Glastonbury taking a year off.
2nd: Wilderness Festival
Wilderness Festival is a weekend long festival in Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire. Wilderness is inspired by the surrounding nature and woodland of the festival site.
6th: Wireless Festival – London
Now in its 14th year, Wireless is held across 2 sites for 2 days with a mix of dance, pop and rock acts.
Boardmasters Festival is always a firm favourite of ours. The mix of music, surf and just the general feel of the festival site. It has started to move away from its family festival roots and now has become one of the larger festivals running this season.
9th: Boomtown Fair – Winchester
Boomtown is advertised as the UK’s most immersive and escapist festival – basing its structure, site and theme round a crazy, made-up history that mirrors the current global economic climate.
16th: Green Man Festival
Green Man Festival takes place within the stunning Brecon Beacons and allows you to explore the beauty of the Welsh surroundings while listening to some great music too.
17th: Beautiful Days – Exeter
Beautiful Days is a music festival that takes place in August at Escot Park, near Ottery St Mary, Devon. The festival was founded by, and is managed by the band The Levellers and was first held in 2003. The festival has no corporate sponsorship or branding
Despite Virgin ending their involvement with V festival this year a festival will return to take its place. The new festival occupies the same weekend and will take place at Hylands Park, Chelmsford.
23rd: Creamfields – Cheshire
Creamfields is a large dance music festival featuring live DJs and acts.
24th: Reading/Leeds Festival – Reading/Leeds
Reading and Leeds Festival is arguably the biggest UK festival other than Glastonbury. We were slightly disappointed with the line up for this one last year so lets hope for bigger and better this year!
24th: Victorious Festival – Portsmouth
Victorious Festival is a non camping event held in Portsmouth and is a popular choice if you want to experience a festival atmosphere this summer but maybe only for one night.
31st: Sundown Festival – Norwich
The music at the Sundown festival is urban and stays more on beats and breaks side of the dance music fence. For a smaller festival this manages to attract big UK names that are able to charge this event with a huge amount of energy.
