Quick Festival Season Is Here!

Quick Festival Season Is Here!

Festival Season is nowhere near over! There are some great festivals in the UK that are extremely easy to get to. Wind, rain, sun or snow, the festival goers will be out in force this summer, covered in glitter and looking for a great time at some of the UK’s best festivals for 2017. If you still haven’t got your festival thrills, there is still time to book a ticket to one of the festivals featured below. Find out more about the UK festival scene this August/September below.

Boomtown

If you are looking for a festival that over something slightly different this summer, then pay a visit to this temporary town. This festival runs next weekend and costs  £202 (weekend), £177 (discounted for coach travellers). The line up includes a number of well-known acts including  Cypress Hill, MIA, Sugar Hill Gang, Dawn Penn, The Specials, Loyle Carner, Soweto Kinch, Toddla T, Booka Shade, Amy Becker, AJ Tracey. Impressive!

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.

The great thing about this festival it is known to be family­-friendly during the day, with something for everyone to enjoy. Once darkness hits, the beats take over and it is perfect for those who enjoy dub, ska and reggae.

V Festival

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).
