8 UPCOMING FESTIVALS YOU NEED TO GO TO


If you're like me and haven't managed to get around to attending any festivals this year, then fear not! There's still plenty upcoming festivals for you to attend.

Go Girl, a young driver car insurance provider have made a really cool interactive festival map, so you can check out what festivals are on around the UK. Depending on how far you are willing to travel to attend a festival, there's definitely an overwhelming amount to choose from and always something for everyone. I would probably catch a lift with my younger sister to avoid train delays and have space to pack all of our festival essentials.

I am pretty determined to visit at least one festival from the remainder left, so if you don't know which festivals are yet to come, then here we are!


Creamfields Festival - 24-27 August
Based between Liverpool and Manchester in a town called Cheshire, Creamfields is a large dance festival. This is one that has already started, but runs across this bank holiday weekend. Tickets are still available to buy across the weekend and boasts performance acts such as Danny Howard, The Chainsmokers, Sigma and my favourite DJ, Annie Mac.

Reading Festival  - 25-27 August
The infamous Reading Festival is one of the UK's biggest returning festivals. It started yesterday and runs across the weekend. There's a staggering total of 9 stages, but the main stage is what attracts most people. This year, the performances include the likes of Bastille, Eminem (omg), Muse and Liam Gallagher. Pretty amazing if you ask me.

Leeds Festival - 26-28 August
The sister festival to Reading Festival is also returning, but kicks off today, right through till Bank Holiday Monday. The exact same acts are performing but are running on the consecutive days to Reading. So if you miss Eminem at Reading, rapping  his bars about his mom's spaghetti, then there's always a chance to catch him again at Leeds Festival.

South West Four Festival - 26-28 August
The annual SW4 Festival madness is beginning today and runs across the weekend. Based in Clapham Common, London, this a fantastic festival for locals and residents across London to attend. It does help if you're a fan of dance music, mind. This year, you can expect appearances from Tinie Tempah (who is an absolute babe in person, I'll have you know), Duke Dumont and Deadmau5.


Electric Fields Festival - 1-2 September
A great one for you wee Scottish folk, is Electric Fields Festival. Based inbetween Glasgow and Edinburgh, in the deep forests of Dumfries and Galloway; Electric Fields Festival has a huge 2 day line up for everyone. Dizzee Rascal is the main headliner for this year, so make sure you fix up and look sharp!

Sundown Festival - 1-3 September
Based just outside of London in Norwich, Sundown Festival is the one that I would absolutely love to attend either this year or next year. It's a mixed festival and the line up is looking very strong. The main stage is hosting the amazing (and very hot), Craig David; alongside Wiley, Rag'n'Bone Man and AJ Tracey. Get me there now!! Or well, next week!

Festival No. 6 - 7-10 September
The final festival that I could find for this summer is Festival No. 6. Although based in Wales, this music and arts festival has a very varied line up for all different music genres. Running across FOUR whole days, the line up includes Rag'n'Bone Man, Kate Tempest, and Bloc Party. A little far for me, but definitely worth it if you're from the valleys!

There we have it! My handy guide for the UK festivals that are yet to happen! Will you be grabbing any last minute tickets for any of the above?
