Summer Music Festivals in UK (June-August 2017)
Summer Music Festivals in UK (June-August 2017)

Isle of Wight Festival, Newport, Isle of Wight: 8-11 June 2017



Headliners: Arcade Fire, Rod Stewart, David Guetta & Run DMC



The reincarnation of one of the UK’s first-ever festivals continues to pull in the world’s biggest guitar slingers and the hottest craftsman and woman from pop and electronic genres. This year the event has managed to bag a UK festival exclusive with headliners Fleetwood Mac, along with The Prodigy, The Black Keys and Pharrell Williams.



 



Download Festival, Donington Park, Derby: 9-11 Jun 2017



Headliners: System of a Down, Biffy Clyro, Aerosmith



Probably the most prestigious hard rock and heavy metal festival in the world, Download took over from the legendary Monsters of Rock Festival at Derby's Donington Park. It's three days packed full of the biggest names from the 70s right up to the newest generation, and if the heavier end of the spectrum is your thing then Download will take a heck of a lot of beating.





Glastonbury Festival, Pilton, Somerset: 21-25 Jun 2017



Headliners: Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran



It may be one of the UK’s oldest festivals, but Glastonbury Festival still kicks stronger than even the youngest of pretenders. In a world of its own, those who enter can expect massive artists, but it's not unusual for some to go the whole week without passing by the infamous Pyramid Stage, and that's because of the immense amount of circus and theatre shows, 24-hour shenanigans, the best food stalls, secret acts and contagious hippydom you'll never shed. It really is one of a kind.



 



Wireless Festival, Finsbury Park, London: 7-9 July 2017



Headliners: Chance the Rapper, Skepta, The Weeknd



Wireless is not quite bigger than hip-hop, but it's certainly getting that way. This supafly soiree is the best chance to see a line up of urban legends, leaning heavily on the side of rap, hip hop and R&B. Pair that with fairground rides, chill out areas, bars and artists singing booths to keep days filled, and you'll begin to understand why this is the only UK date these type of urban stars book in advance.





Latitude Festival, Henham Park, Southwold: 13-16 Jul 2017



Headliners: The 1975, Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes



Taking over the idyllic English countryside, Latitude is, as its tagline proclaims, much more than just a music festival. With DJs hidden in the woods, colourful sheep roaming the tufty fields, opera on the lake, film debuts in its onsite cinema, clowns under canvas, actors treading the boards, local ales, dance troupes and a huge children’s area, there's something to keep whatever age entertained. Oh, and there’s a full programme of music too.





 



Lovebox, Victoria Park, East London: 14-15 Jul 2017



Headliners: Frank Ocean, Chase & Status, Jamie xx, Jess Glynne



London’s beat lovers, freaks and hipsters convene for an annual party created by Groove Armada. A colourful mix of dance dons, rock gods, vintage markets, bespoke bars and fairground tides, Lovebox is a carousel of creativity.



Secret Garden Party, Mill Hill Field, Cambridgeshire: 20-23 Jul 2017



Headliners: Crystal Fighters, Metronomy, Toots and the Maytals



A 100 acre toy box, Secret Garden Party is set within a landscaped garden bordering a river and lake in Cambridgeshire, and is absolutely bursting with eclectic abundance. Take a dip inside and you could easily pull out a paint fight, a mud wrestle, a dance offs or a debate - it really is that random, but that's why we love it.





 



Wilderness Festival, Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire: 3-6 Aug 2017



Headliners: Two Door Cinema Club, Grace Jones, Bonobo



If there’s one thing Britain’s festivals do brilliantly, it’s boutique bashes. One of the more posh and pretty gatherings in the event calendar, Oxfordshire’s Wilderness Festival is the type of place where you can watch a bona fide legend on the stage, enjoy a banquet feast, a science lecture, soak in a hot tub, and watch a one man performance of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.



Green Man Festival, Brecon Beacons, Wales: 17-20 Aug 2017



Headliners: PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams, Future Islands



As far as festival locations go, Green Man Festival takes in the might of the UK’s landscape with its backdrop of the Brecon Beacons’ Black Mountains in Wales, and the folk-led line-up fits it perfectly. Hidden in the hills are 1,500 performers to discover across the comedy, theatre and literary worlds, complimented by the host local ales and ciders on offer, and the various spas and therapies to nurse away those hangovers.





Reading & Leeds, Little John's Farm & Bramham Park: 25-27 Aug 2017



Headliners: Kasabian, Eminem, Muse



Reading Festival is the type of riotous event that Bank Holiday Mondays are made for, providing a platform for rising and established indie acts, metal groups, next generation dance, hip hop and alternative pop bands. If they ain’t playing here, they ain’t worth seeing.



Shambala, Secret Country Estate, Northamptonshire: 24-27 Aug 2017



Headliners: 65daysofstatic, Clap! Clap!, Barely Legal



Described as 'heartfelt, purposeful hedonism' Shambala is a four day indulgence of perfectly blended creativity and participation, where revellers can feast upon circus acts, stand-up comedy, debates, and interactive theatre in a selection of beautifully decorated venues. Pioneering, intimate and truly innovative, Shambala is a place to play, revitalise, and make lots of new friends.





South West Four, Clapham Common, South West London: 26-27 Aug 2017



Headliners: Pendulum, deadmau5, Eric Prydz



If London ever needed an extra club, South West Four is it. And what a club it is. Forget those tasteless, champagne with sparklers joints, this is an open-air party palace that sorts out the essentials first: music, music and more music. A coming together of the EDM world, their understudies, and up-and-comings stars, the four stages of house, techno, minimal, trance and electronica will fill your ears for the evening, before you head out to one of the countless after parties.
