ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL

Where: Newport, Isle of Wight

When: 9-12th June 2016

Having worked at the festival for 4 years, we still love the atmosphere of this amazing festival. It consistently draws in the biggest musicians from all generations, making it truly a great festival for all music lovers. Despite its size, Isle of Wight is a perfect family festival with a Kids zone filled with performances and events across the whole weekend. 


V FESTIVAL

Where: Chelmsford, East London

When: 20-21st August

Headliners: Justin Bieber, SIA, Rhianna, David Guetta

For its 21st birthday this year V festival is set for big things. With the continual success of this two-day festival it’s a guaranteed to be an awesome weekend. Past acts include Kasabian, Calvin Harris and Kodaline. 


T IN THE PARK

Where: Strathallan Castle, Perthshire

When: 8-10th July 2016

Headliners: The Stone Roses, Disclosure, The 1975, Courteeners

As Scotland’s biggest music festival T in the Park is always set to be a big event, even more so this year with headliners The Stone Roses.


READING AND LEEDS

Where: Reading, Leeds

When: 26-28th August

Headliners: Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the 1975, Courteeners

Though probably better known as an indie festival, Reading and Leeds has a wide range of artists, previously pulling in massive artists such as Eminem and Metallica. Even as one of the later summer festivals it is definitely worth the wait. 


GLASTONBURY

Where: Worthy Farm, Glastonbury, Somerset

When: 22-26th june

Headliners: TBA

This one-of-a-kind festival is in a world of its own.  Events such as circus and theatre shows, secret acts, countless food stalls and area theme activities run round the clock throughout the week at Glastonbury. It's possible to go the full week without passing the famous Pyramid stage where the likes of Beyonce, Kanye West, The Who and Florence and the Machine have played.


BESTIVAL

Where: Robin Hill Country Park, Isle of Wight

When: 8-11th September

Headliners: The Cure, Major Lazer, Hot Chip

Flamboyance and silliness are key elements at Bestival, the place where more is more and nothing is ever too bizarre. Among the thousands of acts that have included The Chemical Brothers, Underworld and Tame Impala, there is plenty to explore such as the lit-up lakesides, mass fancy dress and late night mischief.
