WE hate to admit when the English do something better than us but hats off to them when it comes to a music festival.
Sure, we throw a decent Big Day Out or Splendour in the Grass but the English have been doing this for decades and the results are outstanding.
UK festivals are a summer tradition up there with Wimbledon and Pimms. The question shouldn’t be ‘Do I go to a festival?’, rather, ‘Which festival should I go to?’
In Britain, you’re spoilt for choice and it’s not just the music you’ll enjoy; there’s also the camping, the atmosphere, the food and the people which all combine to make for a great few days.
Of course there is the music too. World class acts come from all corners of the globe to converge on ol’ Blighty and perform for their ever growing legion of fans.
Music Festivals Guide
We have compiled for you here the inside knowledge on doing the music festivals, both here and in Europe – the best advice, fashion tips, some great tickets give-aways and, of course, the roll call and line-ups of the greatest shows on Earth.
So, as the man in the hat says, ‘do yourself a favour’ and get along to a festival this summer. You’ll see a part of the world you might not have necessarily gone to, see some amazing music, meet new people and soak up the awesome festival vibes.
All we can say is, rock on summer and bring on the noise!
