Festivals are a summer stable across the United Kingdom.

Hundreds of festivals take place across the U.K each summer from literary festivals, food festivals and even cheese rolling festivals. This info graphic looks at four British music festivals that are a must see for any music fan and some you may not have even heard of!
The first festival this info graphic discovers isBlissfields Festival in Hampshire. The theme this year is ‘Take a Walk on the Wild Side!’ and promises to be an electric weekend. Taking place the first weekend in July this festival offers a stellar line up with previous acts such as Bastille and Passenger, along with lots of attractions from Bradleys Bubble Bus to the Hobgoblin Beer Festival.
If you want to hit the Highlands and visit a festival in Scotland try the Belladrum Tartan Heart Music Festival in August. Along with an eclectic music line up for all tastes there is street theatre, cabaret, cinema, dance and alternative therapies all on offer.
Lounge on the Farm Festival in Canterbury is not to be missed for its relaxed, chilled atmosphere. You can’t help but unwind at the Healing Fields or delight your taste buds at the Kitchen Theatre. The final unheard of festival this info graphic looks at isIreby Festival in Wigton described as ‘Feel good folk’ that is exactly the type of music and the type of people you can expect to find here!
