Our Top 5 Festival Picks for this Summer

Isle of Wight Festival, Isle of Wight 
11-14 June 2015


There's something for everyone at the Isle of Wight Festival with a mouth-watering line up featuring some of our all time favourites; Fleetwood Mac, Blur, Paulo Nutini and Counting Crows (we know..amazing!). With a little bit of sunshine (fingers crossed) in a beautiful setting by the sea, this could be the hottest festival ticket of the season in more ways than one. 

TOP TIP: Make sure you book yourself into one of the luxury VIP glamping tents paired with backstage access to the Artist Village, where you can sip bubbles at the Marina VIP Champagne bar or enjoy a little pampering at the Liz Earle Beauty Spa. From Stylish Stardomes, beautiful Bell Tents to Camp Kerala Mademoiselle for chic glamorous comfort there are plenty of lovely options to choose from. 

Glastonbury Festival, Somerset
24-28 June 2015


A festival that needs little introduction and has one of the most amazing followings of any event in the world - it surely has to be on that bucket list.  This year's line up includes an eclectic mix of old and new; from The Who and Lionel Richie to George Ezra, Todd Terje & The Oslens and that's before all the other slightly overwhelming number of amazing acts and experiences on offer.

TOP TIP: Watch the sunrise or sunset from Stone Circle, the view from the 'Sacred Space' is stunning
TOP TIP: Make a trip to Vanity Truck, where you can touch up your hair and makeup to keep you looking fresh
TOP TIP: Sample the Somerset Cider from the famous Somerset Cider Bus, where Mr Temperley has been selling since the very first Glastonbury festival in 1970


Latitude Festival, Suffolk
16 - 19 July 2015


For a weekend filled with music, poetry, dancing, theatre, comedy and cabaret head to Suffolk for the annual Latitude Festival. We love everything about this festival but most of all the brilliant comedy on offer...

TOP TIP: Don't miss comic legends Jason Manford, Alan Davies and Jon Richardson who all promise to be big hits on centre stage.  

TOP TIP: Make sure you catch the powerful new dance sensation 'Titanium' perform on the floating Waterfront Stage, an electrifying mix of street dance combined with flamenco and hip hop beats, this is surely one not to miss.     

Secret Garden Party, Cambridgeshire
23- 26 July 2015 


"A weekend of creative and chaotic hedonism"; Secret Garden Party is the dance festival of the season; held in 220 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens at Abbot's Ripton Estate in Cambridgeshire.  There are a host of great bands and DJs playing including The Cat Empire (one of our faves), Angus and Julia Stone, Jungle and The Correspondents.

TOP TIP: Don't miss reggae legend David Rodigan's set on The Great Stage...he is amazing!
TOP TIP: Sample brunch paired with a Bloody Mary at the Soulfire Restaurant, set under a canvas oasis with beautiful alfresco seating overlooking the lake.


Wilderness Festival, Oxfordshire
6-9 August 2015


"A place where art, intellectualism and fantastic gastronomy share equal billing with music" The Guardian. Wilderness Festival has it all; from amazing music acts and theatre performances, to world-renowned pop up restaurant and long-table banquets; and all in a beautiful setting where you can take a dip in the lake and join meditation workshops at The Sanctuary.

TOP TIP: Pay a visit to The Juke Joint, a deep south creation of Soul, Rhythm and Blues bands and a favourite from last year...Don't miss Lady Fitz and Dizz & The Doormen. 
TOP TIP: Book a long- table banquet with Michelin star chef Angela Harnett...well worth the ticket price and an amazing way to while away your day.
