Best UK Festivals 2017
The sun is shining, and the festival season is upon us! But with so many choices, which should you pick this year? We’ve done a quick roundup of our favourites, and the shoes to take with you. It’s not too late to get your dancing shoes on – all that’s left to do is buy a ticket!
FIELD DAY FESTIVAL | Best UK Festivals 2017
Just over a week away, Field Day Festival in Victoria Park, London E2, is one not to miss. Gradually growing in size each year, this festival is perfect for those that have outgrown the more commercial Lovebox. An eclectic line-up of electronic and dance music, the festival describes itself as having a ‘Village Mentality’, with a mixture of fête-like events on the day.
FESTIVAL NUMBER SIX | Best UK Festivals 2017
If you’re seeking a full-on experience rather than just a festival, this is the one for you. Nestled in the idyllic town of Portmeirion in Wales, the setting will take your breath away. Expansive beaches are coupled with torchlit processions and carnivals, as well as experiences such as paddleboarding or yoga. Pair this with an impressive dance and rock-and-roll line-up and you’ve got the recipe for adventure.
Nestled in Bygrave Woods, Farr Festival has been going for eight years now, and for 2017 promises to be better than ever. If you’re looking to escape into another world, this could be for you. The pictures just don’t do it justice. The team are passionate about listening to festival-goer feedback, and this year a new area outside of the woods will also host talks, workshops and screenings, plus an interactive art zone and new live music stage.
CITADEL Festival | Best UK Festivals 2017
Back to Victoria Park, here Citadel festival is finding its feet. It’s on a Sunday, but don’t let that put you off – maybe, just maybe try not drinking for a hangover-free commitment? Foals are a must-see, headlining with their UK Festival exclusive. Supported by Bonobo and a diverse range of artists, you won’t be disappointed. And there’s plenty of beer choice too, if you fancy pulling a sickie come Monday.
LOVE SAVES THE DAY | Best UK Festivals 2017
Head over to Bristol this weekend for Love Saves the Day, which is actually created by two guys behind Love International and Glastonbury. The festival has a killer line up, combining the best of Bristol’s thriving underground scene with pioneering artists.
