MUSIC FESTIVALS

Britain boasts some of the biggest and best music festivals in the world, offering a little bit of something for everyone.  Of course the top must-do on any festival-lover’s checklist is Glastonbury, a camping music festival which takes place in the last week of June (though gumboots are a must!) and never fails to impress with dream line ups. Past headliners include the Rolling Stones, Adele, Muse and so many more… Tickets sell out in a matter of hours every year but they do have a re-release a few months before the concert, so keep an eye out if you’re keen.

Next on the list should be the Reading and Leeds music festivals, both held on the same weekend in August with the same line up. This year they’ll be hosting the Arctic Monkeys, Blink 182 and Of Mice and Men to name a few, so get some camping gear and prepare for a memorable weekend with some of the world’s best live acts. For the more mainstream radio-listeners out there, hit up the Wireless festival in London and Birmingham for a sweet pop/hip hop inspired lineup. Three days of tunes from Kanye, Pharrell, Drake, Rudimental, Bruno Mars and Outkast will be sure to give you an unforgettable weekend, and there are even day tickets on sale if you’re not up for three days of moshing.

Isle of Wight Festival is a more rock-focused camping festival, with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Biffy Clyro and Kings of Leon headlining the 2014 event. Once known as ‘Britain’s Woodstock’, Isle of Wight has hosted rock royalty such as Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, and continues to offer rock fans an incredible atmosphere to soak up the sounds of their favourite artists.
