About Festivals in UK

The UK offers a plethora of festivals to delight entertainment seekers of all kinds. Every year, visitors and native Brits alike can choose from a wide variety of festivals that cater to all types of tastes and interests. The many UK music festivals are always a popular option: The Glastonbury Festival is always sure to please, featuring a star-studded lineup of classic acts as well as rising stars. This one sells out fast, so visitors would be well advised to get their tickets in advance. Anyone looking for a guaranteed good time with some straightforward mainstream pop music should check out the Wireless Festival in London and the V Festival in Essex and Staffordshire.

There are plenty of UK events that cater to niche tastes as well. Indie music enthusiasts might like to check out the Field Day festival in London or the Bestival Festival on the Isle of Wight. Techno fans would do well to look into We Are FSTVL in Essex. Hard rockers might enjoy the Download Festival. And those in the market for a socially conscious festival with an ethical spin might find the following festivals would suit them best: As One in the Park in London, the Sunrise Festival in Bath, the Wychwood Festival in Cheltenham.
