This festival may not be the first choice for many, however, it is an excellent choice for those who want to escape mainstream music. If you have been to this extraordinary festival before then you will know that it is held in the Matterley Bowl estate. The place is completely transformed into a magical town full of hypnotic basslines and interesting installations.
V Festival is an old favourite of ours and not wonder with acts like; Jay Z, Pink, Rudimental, Pete Tong, Craig David, Ellie Goulding, Jess Glynne, Stormzy, Dizzee Rascal, James Arthur, Krept and Konan all gracing their stage. You will find this hot list of celebs in Weston Park, South Staffordshire and Hylands Park, Chelmsford during the weekend of August 18-19.
This festival seems to have bottomless booking budget, something that we are not complaining about. You will always find a great line up at this festival and it never disappoints. After 22 years in the game, they know their audience and the festival is incredibly well done (if the sunshine is involved).
The name says it all really! Get ready for a number of big names from a mix of backgrounds at Bestival. It’s not only a big line up for Bestival this year as there are also big changes when it comes to location. Bestival is moving to the mainland this year with The xx, A Tribe Called Quest, Dizzee Rascal, Pet Shop Boys, Jamie T, DJ Shadow, Rag’n’Bone Man, Soul II Soul, Annie Mac, Ray BLK, Toddla T, Nadia Rose, Andy C, coming along for the ride. You still have plenty of time to buy tickets for this Lulworth Cove event in Dorset as it is on from September 7-10th .
Nothing changes as Bestival will still offer four days of amazing live music sets, DJs and fancy dress thanks to their yearly changing theme. It is all fun and games as Bestival as visitors can visit the inflatable church for a quickie festival marriage.
