‘The Great British Festival’
As us Brits get ready to flock to the festivals this season, we look at our favourites…
Lattitude (18th-21st July) Suffolk’s, Henham Park.
“more than just a music festival” with comedy, art and music all in one place, what more could you want? There is even a gourmet festival onsite from Giant Robot! With that and Glam camping available it’s more luxury than being at one with our beautiful but oh, so wet countryside!
Who were looking out to see: Kraftwerk, Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Alt-J, Daughter, Friends and Laura Mvula.
Beacons (16th-18th August) Heslaker Farm, Skipton.
A new-comer to the festival scene but not to be looked over. This is a festival for families and full blown festival go-ers alike. With activities for the little ones, art instillations and great acts for the adults. Small in scale so a breath of relief from festivals that get stormed on mass! And guess what Solange is playing – couldn’t get much better than that right?!
Who were looking out to see: Solange, Ghostpoet, Steeling Sheep and Django Django.
Glastonbury: (28th-30th June) Pilton, Somerset.
The festival of festivals. Claimed as one of the friendliest, warmest and most interesting festivals, there is so much to see from dance, comedy, theatre, music, the circus and cabaret. We plan to get lost in the crowds and discover.
Who were looking out to see: The Rolling Stones, Haim, First Aid Kit, Arctic Monkeys.
Festival No.6 (13th-15th September) Portmeirion, Wales.
Winner of Best New Festival (UK Festival Awards) offering an ‘intimate, bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture’ Offering accommodation with a difference you can even stop in a castle. Spoken of as the fairytale festival we can’t wait to see if it blows our imagination.
Who were looking out to see: Laura Mvula, Lianne La Havas and London Grammer.
Enjoy a summer full of Brit festivals, just don’t forget your wellies! X
