Summer Festival Crowd

The weather is starting to warm up, the sun is starting to shine, which can only mean one thing. The time is almost here to think about our summer festival plans.

With every year that passes it seems that there are more and more festivals popping up around the UK. Music, food, family and everything in between, there are festivals for all ages and tastes.

Not sure on which festival you fancy going to? We have put together our 2017 summer festival guide, telling you more about some of the choices to make sure that you have the most wonderful summer ever!

Strawberries & Creem

A one day festival held on the 17th June 2017, Strawberries & Creem is a Cambridge based music festival that is anything but a chilled out afternoon tea affair. Sure, it might have started as one large garden party, this particular festival is now attracting people in their thousands, thanks to the big name acts that grace the stage.

The perfect way to welcome in the summer, this festival is the ideal way to spend a warm day in beautiful surroundings. 

Lost Village

Looking to leave the world you know behind? Love the idea of spending an August weekend in an abandoned woodland village in Lincolnshire? Lost Village is for you.

It almost has the feel of a land that time forgot, this intimate festival is more than just about the music, it is about the experience too. An intimate festival, it is a celebration of all things that are great about life. Music, food, and even comedy.

Those who are lucky enough to get a ticket for Lost Village will be more than happy to leave that modern life behind and discover themselves again!

Live at Leeds

Why limit yourself to attending a festival at one location? If you decide to head to Live at Leeds then you can not only indulge yourself in some of the best new music out there, but also discover the city too.

Running since 2007, in the past 10 years this festival has grown in size and has attracted a variety of musical acts including those that are up and coming and those that are already becoming established.

Held over the August bank holiday weekend, Live at Leeds is the North of England’s leading metropolitan festival and has grown in popularity each and every year!

Slam Dunk

One of the first festivals of the year, Slam Dunk is held during the May bank holiday weekend in 3 different locations. North (Leeds), South (Hatfield) and the Midlands (Birmingham).

Featuring a wide variety of different alternative acts, Slam Dunk is more than just a chance to see some amazing acts, it is a chance to unleash your inner rock god and spend some time away from the routine of everyday life!

Sundown

From one of the first festivals, to one of the last. Sundown is held in Norwich during the 1st- 3rd September, making it a nod to the end of the festival season. It boasts 5 different stages and a yet to be announced line up. However, looking at previous acts, we are sure that this is going to be a festival that is hard to resist!

 

These are just some of the festivals that you can choose from this summer. Whether you want to lose yourself with the Lost Village or simply enjoy some summer sunshine and music with Strawberries & Creem. You are sure to find the perfect way to spend a hopefully warm and sunny British summers day! Just don’t forget to pack your wellies, just in case!
