Once the sun is out, I’m all up for the festival season. Music, glitter, margs, and fun, YAS PLEASE! I don’t know if you share the same excitement as me about la fiesta, but you sure will after seeing these festivals which I can guarantee will be on your bucket list, sooner or later!
Since there is still some time until summer, the timing is perfect for you to get yourself a ticket to one of the hottest festivals we’ve put together that you’ll definitely want to go.
PARKLIFE Saturday 9th June – Sunday 10th June
If you’re not a fan of muddy camping fields, then you’ll definitely enjoy your time while in Heaton Park in Manchester during June for Parklife. For the ninth year in a row, Parklife embodies perfectly the spirit of Manchester, hosting people from all over the world for an amazing music weekend. But you’ll have to pick fast and not miss out on the huge line-up which ranges from Liam Gallagher to Carl Cox, as tickets as selling out fast.
We Are FSTVL Friday 25th May – Sunday 27th May
We Are FSTVL is only in its fifth year but has immensely grown as one of the biggest electronic, underground and grime festivals. Held in Upminster, London, the festival brings famous faces from all over the world, so you will most probably get your face seen. Last year, it offered camping for the first time, so you can stay over the weekend, but if you live nearby, you can just buy daytime tickets too.
Hosting the biggest names in electronic music ranging from Andy C to Gorgon City, Eric Prydz to Pendulum and SO many others, this festival is a MUST.
Lovebox Friday 13th July – Saturday 14th July
You should definitely head to Gunnersbury Park in London for this year’s Lovebox festival if you are into experiencing everything from indie and hip hop to grime and pop. The festival founded by Groove Armada and built on London’s party scene, it invites you to just show up and bring the love. This year you will have the chance to see Childish Gambino, Skepta, and N.E.R.D so you will definitely not want to miss out.
The Beat-Herder Festival Friday 13th July – Sunday 15th July
The Beat-Herder festival in the Parish Church is the festival to attend if you truly want to have a surreal weekend partying in a real life fortress. Glitter, crazy fancy dresses, carnage, you name it, they got it. Whatever your imagination, Beat-Herder’s got it.
Beat-Herder began in 2006 as a rave between 1200 people in a forest of the quiet northern town of Clitheroe. While the festival used to feature handmade signs, old restored cars, and homemade hymn books, it now looks like so much more but without losing its originality.
The festival’s line-ups consist of Django Django, Patrick Topping, Artwork, Camelphat and so many others. Beat-Herder is the place everyone will soon be talking about.
