Top Summer Festivals (UK) 2014

Hey Everyone,

So I thought that since summer is coming up soon
you might be looking at some music 
festivals to go to...

Therefore, I have put together a small collection
 of the top UK festivals to see this summer
(although I am basing this on the blog's music

Field Day
Date: 7th-8th June 2014
Location: Victoria Park, London
It may be over 18s only, which is probably
quite a bonus for you adults, but this festival
has a brilliant line-up! The Pixies, Drenge,
Metronomy and Temples are all to bless the
stage and in previous years Beirut and The Vaccines
have headlined too! So, if you enjoy the rock/indie 
music scene then this one is for you.

Date: 4th-7th September 2014
Location: Robin Hill, Isle of Wight
Bestival; a festival of music, food and the arts.
Every year this festival comes back with a stronger 
line-up than ever before. Foals, Paloma Faith,
Chvrches and Laura Mvula are set to perform as well
as Public Service Broadcasting (for the more
alternative/electronic musician inside you).
This perky festival is a celebration of all things
fresh and "out-there".

Date: 17th-20th July 2014
Location: Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk
Having been to this festival a few times I can honestly
say that it is wonderful! Music, Poetry, Film and Comedy
create a lively, atmospheric vibe. People of all ages
flock to Suffolk annually for entertainment, amazing food 
and beautiful scenery. Named 2nd best festival of 2013,
Latitude gets all the best acts; this year Damon Albarn,
Crystal Fighters, Bombay Bicycle Club and George Ezra
have been announced! 

T in the Park
Date: 11th-13th July 2014
Location: Kinross-Shire, Scotland
Yes, it may be in Scotland but don't let this killer
festival put you off. The fantastic line-up includes:
The Pixies, Imagine dragons, Haim, The Arctic Monkeys,
Bastille and dozens more!! If you want a festival
with a broad music scene then this is perfect! 
A smaller-than-average no-nonsense festival
for the music lover in you, get the tickets
soon or they'll go!

The Garden Party
Date: 24th-27th July 2014
Location: Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire
The Garden Party is a lovely festival with the
best new artists including MO, Wolf Alice,
Big Deal and Foxes. Set in a dreamy indie/hipster
forest setting this festival is artistic and 
magical. A must-see!

I'm hoping this may come into some use for
you festival-scavengers! 
Of course I am aware that I didn't include
Glastonbury or the Isle of Wight festival
but I wanted to give some smaller festivals a 

Have a magical Friday :D
