With festival season fast approaching it can be hard to decide where to go so I have put together my ultimate festival guide, I hope this can help you decide the best festival for you.
Truck festival takes place between the 20th-22nd of July in Oxfordshire, this year’s headliners include Friendly Fires and George Ezra and while they’re great I am really drawn to the acts that appear further down the lineup. You’ve got The Amazons, Pale waves, Black Honey, Anteros, BLOXX, Ladybird and the list goes on. This one is going to be a proper party, they are currently on their phase four tickets that are £110 however they are expected to go quickly with another lineup announcement looming so be quick, get your tickets HERE
TRNSMT festival takes place on Glasgow Green over two weekends the 29th June- 1st of July and then the 6th and 8th of July. Despite only being the festivals second year they have enlisted some of the worlds biggest acts to headline even booking the Arctic Monkeys only confirmed show of 2018! While that is a massive talking point in itself they have also got Stereophonics, Liam Gallagher, Queen+ Adam Lambert and The Killers. They really haven’t held back and in my opinion, have delivered the best Headliners of the Season! It came as a bit of a shock to me that a ticket for all 5 days only came in at £260 which is super low when a lot of festivals you are looking at that price for only three days and even better day tickets are only £59 which is just unbelievable considering how much tickets for headline shows cost nowadays, definitely getting more for your money here.

Neverworld by Leefest is a festival that takes place on the first weekend of August in Kent, the festival has grown immensely over the years after forming in a young man named Lees back garden one year. This is my local festival so I have a lot of love for it and last year I was lucky enough to attend as press and I had the best time. The whole atmosphere of the festival is like no other they have three realms, The Neverwoods, Mermaid Lagoon and Skull Ridge all with their own unique style and feel.This year sports their biggest lineup yet with Bastille and Clean bandit alongside co-headliners Declan Mckenna and Tom Grennan. It’s a really great festival for discovering new music you might not have otherwise and who doesn’t love a rave in the woods and a bit of dressing up.Want to know a little more? you can read my full 2017 experience post here to get a better idea of the vibe: LeeFest 2017Phase four tickets are close to selling out so be quick, £109 is an absolute bargain considering the banging lineup and overall unforgettable experience, I might see you there, pick your tickets up now to avoid any disappointment HERE
All points east
All Points East is a brand new ten-day event in East London’s Victoria Park encompassing a three-day music festival, community-focused programme of midweek entertainment and three huge All points East Presents headline shows. While they have got an awesome and diverse handful of headliners including The National and The XX I am going to be talking especially about their Catfish and the Bottlemen show! They have managed to pull together some of indie rocks biggest names including Blossoms, The Neighbourhood and The Amazons and get this… the tickets are only £39 that is such an amazing price for all of these acts and a great day of entertainment hence it taking the top spot of my best budget festival, pick up your tickets HERE
Best for the non-campers
Bringing this guide to a close with a festival perfect for all you out there that cannot bear to camp but don’t want to feel as if you are missing out on the action. 2018 is the second year of Community festival, it takes place in Finsbury Park on July 1st. This years headliner is the massive Two Door cinema club and not only are they killing it with them they have got support from The Vaccines, Circa Waves, Rat boy, Tom Grennan, Pale waves, king nun amongst others. It feels as if they have just cherry picked the best parts of all the other festivals and have condensed it all into one day, and I really like that. Without a doubt tickets for this are going to go quickly so do get your hands on them while you still can
